About this talk

As data analytics becomes a cornerstone for modern companies, understanding who owns what in the data organization has never been more confusing—or important. Adding to this “identity crisis” is the fact that many companies use names like “data analyst” and “data scientist” interchangeably, and the responsibilities, like data discovery or data governance, continue to evolve as the data stack matures.

Simultaneously, new roles, such as analytics engineer and data product manager, have emerged to fill very important gaps in this ecosystem. During this panel, Barr Moses will lead a conversation between data leaders at companies across industries, at small to large companies, about this evolution, where we are headed, and other opportunities and challenges for modern data teams.
