DataOps & Management

Focusing on the practice, management, workflows and dataops of data science

Understand the MLOps & Practice of Data Engineering in the Real World

As data science extends its reach across an enterprise, the need for better management, workflow, production and deployment practices increases. The challenges of deploying and monitoring models in production, managing data science workflows and teams, and understanding ROI are a few of the issues organizations wrestle with.

Learn best practices for effective data science management

Sessions in this broad focus area will look at uses cases, best practices, and stories from the field to show how to effectively incorporate data science practice into the wider business process.  This focus area will look beyond data sourcing and modeling towards the many challenges teams need to overcome to effectively apply data science in their organization.
