How to build a successful data team — Florian Douetteau

As you walk into your office on Monday morning, before you've even had a chance to grab a cup of coffee, your CEO asks to see you. He's worried: both customer churn and fraudulent transactions have increased over the past 6 months. As Data Manager, you have 6 months to solve that.

As Data Manager, you know the challenges ahead:

  • Multitudes of technology choices to make
  • Building a team and solving the skill-set disconnect
  • Data can be deceiving...
  • Figuring out what the successful data product must be

The goal of this talk is to provide some perspective to these topics


Florian works in the “data” field since 01’, back when it was not yet big. He worked in successful startups in search engine, advertising and gaming industries, holding various data or CTO’s role. He started Dataiku in 2013, his first venture as a CEO, with the goal of alleviating the daily pains from the data enthusiasts and let them express their creativity.
