Once you’ve proven the power of data and your data team at your company, the next question is, “How can I get more?” But that request doesn’t always lead to more resources — especially at early-stage companies. In this session, you’ll hear from data professionals who have learned to do more with less; specifically, we’ll focus on how teams can move from request backlogs to proactive data teams. You’ll learn what they wish they had done differently as they scaled, and which tools, programs and resources they relied on.
