New Podcast: How to use Big Data to Stay Competitive

Wondering what you should do about “big data?”

We sit down with Catalant expert Dave Herman to talk about two rising technologies that can drive deep insights into your business and give you a leg up on the competition.

Dave shares how to get started with one of these technologies (data visualization) and the biggest mistake to avoid when trying to integrate it in your organization.

He goes further into neural networks, sharing the story of how he became convinced of the power of such advanced analytics while working at a metal smelter in the Australian outback.

Dave is advising leading industrial clients on these technologies and others and we’re excited to share his insights in this episode.
