Data is becoming more important and at the forefront of everyone’s mind – whether that is your own personal data and how companies use it, or whether it is as a company wanting to get better insights into the vast amount of data they hold. This is the story of my journey as a Lead BA, or ‘Initiative Lead’ as I’m now known, within a newly formed Data Innovation Lab as part of a Cloud Data Platform programme. The purpose of our team is to find high value use cases that can be delivered using data – including Data Visualisations, Data Science, Machine Learning Models and so on. The end goal is to deliver value quicker: this in turn helps prioritise what is developed in the Cloud Data Platform Teams.
