Just “plugging in” a data scientist in your databases won’t deliver the expected results. First, you need to ensure your data is actually valuable.
Your company has data — and it’s likely a lot of data. Millions of rows, maybe even images, audio and video. But nothing you can call big data…yet. Data were collected over time through many systems, whether yours or third parties, like ERPs, CRMs and other applications. You stored it somewhere: your relational database, spreadsheets, NoSQL databases or anywhere else. It may even be stored on a third party database (inside some software that you use).
