Metis Launches Webinar Series to Help Organizations Thrive in the Data Revolution

Sponsored by Businesswire

As the Digital Age evolves into the Data Revolution, executing a data
science strategy has morphed from a competitive advantage into a
requirement for survival. To help organizations succeed in building
effective data analytics capabilities, leading data science training
provider Metis
has announced a new
live webinar series
designed for decision-makers and data science

Business leaders are coming to realize the profound impact the Data
Revolution will have on every facet of their companies, with IBM CEO
Ginni Rometty predicting that 100
percent of jobs will change within the next five to ten years

“Although organizations of all stripes are increasing their investment
in data science and analytics, many face huge challenges with adoption
and recognizing the ROI,” said Mike Galvin, Executive Director of
Corporate Training at Metis. “From our work helping Intel, Wells Fargo,
and other top companies upskill their workforces, we know that a key
difference between businesses that reap the benefits of AI and those
that don’t is having a strong data and analytics business strategy.”

The first webinar in the new series, “Start
with Strategy: Building an Effective Data Science Project Portfolio for
Your Business
,” will be held May 15, 2019 at 1 PM ET. Taught by
Kerstin Frailey, Senior Data Scientist at Metis, the webinar will tackle
the challenges of strategic planning for data science and how to
overcome them, including:

  • Critically evaluating and selecting pitched projects
  • Building an impactful and high yield project portfolio
  • Evolving your roadmap to quickly adapt to new opportunities

Launched in 2013, Metis offers comprehensive training onsite and live
online for corporate clients, with custom solutions including modular
learning paths, workshops, content licensing, and bootcamps for a range
of introductory to advanced topics, from data literacy and advanced
