A modern enterprise data strategy is critical in the digital age, where depth of operational sophistication and management of scale can be existential problems for growing enterprises. Fundamentally, data should serve the strategic imperatives of a business - those key strategic aspirations that define the future vision for an organization. Big data and data science have great potential for accelerating business, but how do you take it beyond aspirations and into a strategy? How do you reconcile the business opportunity with the sea of possible solutions, and make it fit your needs?

In this tutorial, we explain how we work to solve real business challenges with data, and build a platform for the future.
