Incredibly informative from a data strategy perspective!
This podcast it so well done! And, as a data strategist myself, I’m a bit obsessed with how well Daniel (and guests) manage to balance clear business objectives with extremely effective data product / project management. The discussion aren’t too techie, nor are they too glossy / salesy. Excellent podcast!
AI in Business podcast is superb
The AI in Business podcast is a great combination of outside corporate AI leadership expertise and fast growing AI startup input the provides a market perspective on the space unmatched by any other AI research firm. Dan Faggella does an incredibly artful job of balancing the business use case and ROI proof points with the relevant tech that supports them. Well done on all fronts, Dan!
I’ve been listening to the show for several years. The AI in Business focus is great since so many companies are still in the discovery phase of AI or just stuck in Excel. The show always delivers solid content. ~ Matt
