Abstract: From hypothesis generation, to hypothesis testing to shipping decisions, product companies require data informed decisions. When shipping a product, companies often think experimentation. But getting to the point of an experiment requires a lot more than a platform. In this talk, I will discuss why informed product decisions require a complementary data ecosystem that supports metrics, analytics and experimentation.
