It bridges the gap between knowing and acting in speed, scale, complexity and variety with a significant bottom line impact. There are no cookie cutter approaches for building a successful practice today - it is an iterative exercise for every domain, organization, function and team. It depends on the specific needs, the stage of analytical maturity, team & organization, infrastructure, funding & leadership support. We will touch upon our journey -our approach to building it, mistakes we made/lessons we learnt, where we are and want to be. We want to hear back from the audience their feedback, inputs and ideas to optimize our progression *This talk will not use any business confidential data, policies and is not official representation of Visa's policies or roadmap.
