Episode Description

The buzz: “There are not enough trained data scientists to meet today’s businesses’ goals of improving efficiency and automating tasks using machine learning” (Ventana Research). Ventana reported that only 40% of organizations surveyed have staff capable of performing data analysis without IT assistance. As a result, Citizen Data Scientists are emerging. Are they filling the void? The experts speak. Richard Mooney, SAP: ”One of history’s few iron laws is that luxuries tend to become necessities and to spawn new obligations” (Yuval N. Harkari). Parimala Narasimha, Cox Communications: “Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure” (Rowena Ravenclaw). Marc Teerlink, SAP: “We believe that if men have the talent to invent new machines that put men out of work, they have the talent to put those men back to work” (JFKennedy). Erik Marcade, SAP: “Prophesy is a good line of business, but it is full of risk” (M.Twain). Join us for The Making of A Citizen Data Scientist: Challenges and Hacks.

Game-Changing Predictive Machine Learning, Presented by SAP

Wednesday at 11 AM Pacific Time/2 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

As business rapidly evolves and constantly changes, those in the driver’s seat have tried to divine the future. Predictive Machine Learning is helping them do just that in a meaningful, impactful way by addressing key business and operational questions, driving ROI, and improving margins. Predictive Machine Learning is truly useful when predictive output is embedded within applications as native features. Line of Business demands for prescriptive insights, coupled with a scarcity of skilled data scientists, compel business people to become ‘citizen data scientists’ to drive predictive capabilities. It is time to think differently about Predictive Machine Learning and how it can transform the work experience.

Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional coffee break with game-changers in our series on how SAP is redefining the role predictive capabilities plays in business, on Game-Changing Predictive Machine Learning.
