It’s safe to say data-driven transformation is my bread and butter. And I want it to be yours too. My aim is to help people think about data in a new way — not something to be afraid of, but something to leverage and grow with. There are still lots of problems to be solved in our industry.

There’s a treasure trove of new technologies that are transforming the way companies do business at incredible speeds. I think of companies like Paypal, which migrated over 20 petabytes of data to serve its 3,000+ users, and Verizon Media, which ingested 200 terabytes of data daily and stored 100 petabytes in BigQuery. Even traditional retailers like Crate & Barrel are making strides in the cloud, doubling their return-on-ad-spend (ROAS) while only increasing investment by 20%.
