A 5 step process for creating an Integrated Data Science Center of Excellence (COE)

COE – Is a centralized data analytics hub surrounded by a selected group of highly intelligent experts that are like-mined and consistently aligned within business units to make better strategic decisions. 

A company’s success is established by managing resources conclusively, processes efficiently through ambitious data science projects, data-focused mindset, and strategic technology roadmap to grow its business.

Strategic management, the modern methodology of data science, and scaling a business with centers of excellence are at the heart of top-performing organizations where data innovation meets success. The importance of analytics centers goes far beyond business operations and corporate performance. Even though building a data center is a considerable investment, the rewards far exceed the risk bringing high ROI, maximizing opportunities, and securing operational improvements.

Data is everywhere; it affects everything and every business. Finding smart ways to analyze people, online information, and statistical data is now an absolute necessity for growing and learning. Data collection, data management, and data mining help leaders make accurate business recommendations through predictive analytics, statistical manipulation, and data science.

 “The corporations that embrace Data Science will find their long-term, generational growth directly proportional to how effectively they incorporated data scientist teams into their strategic planning. Data Science takes the guesswork/emotions out of answering business questions by applying logic and mathematics to find better solutions.” ― Ken Poirot

Competency data centers have a collection of IT skills, proficiencies, and expertise that are joined – have an organizational structure to provide leadership, a centralized focal point, and know-how on different disciplines within the organization.
