5 great Data Strategy Resources

I am putting together some of my own resources on Data Strategy. Here are a few of the top resources I found helpful so far.

  1. What is a Data Strategy? – various definitions of a data strategy
  2. The 5 essential Components of a Data Strategy – a detailed whitepaper(PDF) from SAS
  3. How to Create a Successful Data Strategy – a detailed report from MIT
  4. How Do You Develop a Data Strategy (including 6 steps) – by Bernard Marr, He has created more data strategies than anyone, so his advice is rock-solid. Also, the entire site contains more helpful information.
  5. Building the AI-Powered Organization – while not specific to data strategy, it fits the topic

Keep watching the blog for more information around my thoughts on Data Strategy.

Nuts About Data Book Review

Just released this week, Nuts about Data, is a fun introductory book about the data science process. Meor Amer tells a witty story about squirrels, mining for nuts, teamwork, and survival. It brings together the entire data science lifecycle from asking questions to final storytelling.

It is a quick read and really fun. I highly recommend it and hope you enjoy it.
