    Data scientists are among the most sought-after talent in tech, but it takes much more than hiring a handful of Ph.Ds to produce meaningful results. This panel of experts will share their experiences applying data analytics and data science to a range of business problems, from engaging customers to improving efficiency and fighting fraud. They'll explore misperceptions about data science, how to build strong ties between business unit and data science teams, where to get started with data science initiatives, and more. They'll also discuss the talent pipeline, including strategies for grooming people internally as well as hiring established experts.
