About the Presentation
Putting together the right sets of capabilities to transform and manage unstructured data technologies and processes is critical. A true “renaissance team” is needed to successfully address both the art and science of managing unstructured data.
Project champions will find themselves asking:
- What technical skills are needed?
- What information architecture skills are needed?
- What program management skills are needed?
- What other skills can be helpful?
- How do I find these people?
This session will cover which skills are must-haves and which skills are nice-to-haves for projects of all sizes. Options for outsourcing platform development and management will be considered as well.
