New Survey Finds Model-Driven Culture Is Critical for Data Science Success

first_img Twitter Local NewsBusiness SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– While companies continue to realize the importance of data science and its ability to positively impact revenue, scaling it across an organization continues to be a challenge. A new survey released today reveals a new leading factor to success — creating a positive, model-driven business culture among employees. This insight is one of the findings from a survey of data and analytics professionals sponsored by Domino Data Lab, provider of the leading open enterprise data science management platform trusted by over 20% of the Fortune 100. Conducted by DataIQ, the leading membership-based forum for connecting, educating and supporting the data and analytics community, the survey curated a research panel of influential data and analytics professionals across a wide range of industry sectors and company sizes in the UK. Seniority ranged from senior managers and heads of department to global directors and chief officers. The survey found that one in four businesses 1 expect data science to impact topline revenue by more than 11 percent. However, the survey indicates a challenge with company culture, suggesting a positive, model-driven culture is difficult to build and still needs to be developed. 39 percent want a clearer definition of needs from stakeholders, 38 percent recognize the need to train business users in data science concepts, and 32 percent identify the need for a more positive relationship with stakeholders. “Many companies begin their data science journey by hiring a few data scientists, but overlook the importance of building a model-driven culture that aligns with business users and their needs,” said Nick Elprin, CEO of Domino Data Lab. “This survey highlights the impact that the lack of positive culture can have on identifying proper use cases, setting appropriate expectations, and ultimately delivering a measurable impact to the business. Understanding these challenges is important for companies at all stages of maturity so they can course correct and successfully scale data science operations across their organizations.” Additionally, 40 percent of respondents indicate that weak understanding or support for data science in business is one of their biggest challenges. One out of three organizations (34%) indicate that conflict between data science and IT is one of their biggest challenges. Even companies that describe themselves at the “advanced” and “reaching maturity” levels in terms of their adoption of data science and analytics are not free of culture conflict. For both of these groups, half (52 percent and 50 percent of both groups respectively) indicate that conflict between data science and IT is their biggest challenge. Some other findings from the survey include:More than half of all organizations (57 percent) expect a revenue uplift of under five percent, showing that the failure to embrace data science contributes to low expectations.One out of five businesses (21 percent) are gaining a major competitive advantage through the use of data and analytics tools across their enterprise.Sixty-seven percent have grouped their data scientists together as a central function or department (e.g., a Center of Excellence), rather than federating them across the business.One out of three organizations (32 percent) need months to get models into production. This latency must be addressed, because market conditions can change quickly and models trained using outdated data will make suboptimal recommendations.One in 10 organizations (10 percent) have adopted a superior automated form of model monitoring that provides proactive alerts when models are starting to decay. Data scientists can then address potential model issues before they impact business results. “For data science to deliver real value to the organization, a positive culture needs to be created in which business stakeholders and data science practitioners have a close bond and common goals,” said David Reed, Knowledge and Strategy Director at DataIQ. “As the survey results show, that’s easier said than done. Four in ten organizations identify a weak understanding or support for data science by the business as their biggest challenge, which creates a vicious circle that leads to one in eight failing to create compelling use cases.” For more information and to download a full copy of the report, please visit: https://www.dominodatalab.com/resources/dataiq-survey-how-to-scale-data-science About Domino Data Lab Domino Data Lab empowers data science teams with the leading, open data science platform that enables enterprises to manage and scale data science with discipline and maturity.

first_img“I believe in stabilization over the next year, but in 2021 we should still focus on domestic guests. Awareness of additional facilities should be raised and continental tourism strengthened. In Rakovica in 2021, we focus on marketing and long-term strategic planninge. “, Bićanić concluded. As part of the first panel, Boris Šuljić, owner of the hotel and winery Boškinac from Novalja, pointed out that this was one of the most challenging years in terms of tourism as well as the most challenging year for him as an entrepreneur. At the beginning of the lockdown, they kept all the employees and used the time to work on the progress of the company. Because of that, he pointed out, they had a very successful season.  Photo: Lika Club As part of the 6th Regional Forum of Family Accommodation (FOS) in Karlovac, tourism experts from the Lika-Senj and Karlovac counties participated, who through two panel discussions, “What about (corona) tourism in 2021?”You”Hosts in crisis and after“, Offered a lot of interesting visions of the next, but also numerous experiences from the year that is now almost behind us. “Trends change independently of the corona and we have to constantly adapt. I am optimistic about 2021 and I believe that flights and maritime traffic, as well as full-profile motor tourism, will be established to a greater extent. We need to prepare well after this difficult experience which should serve as a guide for the next season and I tell everyone to prepare very well to deliver high quality. We are already working a hundred hours on new dishes” Šuljić pointed out and added that he believed in the classic continuation of his activity and a return to the “old normal”.  Hrvojka Božić, director of the Museum of the Homeland War from Karlovac, which opened in 2019. She pointed out that they used digital channels this year to bring back visitors. “We turned to digital marketing and visitors quickly returned. In the summer months, we were at 80% of last year’s guests and therefore we are optimistic about 2021. It took us a while to adjust but this experience will come in handy. One of the important elements for our success is the work of the museum in the local community and the connection within the destination, and here in Karlovac there was still a lot of room for improvement. I am an optimist and I believe that with spring we can start in full force, especially because we have adapted the contents that gather a larger number of people, according to the contents of an individual character.”, Concluded Božić. “Our old values ​​will continue to motivate people to travel. Some habits will change, but in this industry that has suffered the most I think the old values ​​will come back.” concluded Šuljić.

Yesterday, the 6th Regional Forum of Family Accommodation (FOS) was organized by the Section of the Family Tourism Community for the Lika-Karlovac region, which operates at the ŽK Karlovac and Otočac, and in partnership with Prilika Group. Krešo Rogoz, director of the company Croatia Open Land DMC from Karlovac, also successfully started this year, after which everything was stopped. This encouraged them to look for new resources and they used this season as a preparation for different, individual tourism and smaller groups. Mihovil Bićanić, Deputy Mayor of the Municipality of Rakovica, which is otherwise excellent in terms of tourist overnight stays, revealed that they had about 25% of overnight stays this year, but he hopes to recover soon.  “It is also interesting that we raised prices which is why we got smaller groups that accumulated more money. The key is to team up, gather additional content and excellence. The whole team is working on associations and new offers and contacts with foreign agencies. We all hope for a normal spring and are based on motorists. It’s time for us all to sit down and figure out how to brand destinations and stand out together to be even more recognizable because we have a lot to show. “, pointed out Rogoz and added that in 2021 they are preparing a novelty on the market – diving on all four rivers in Karlovac. As a conclusion of the panel discussion, tourism experts said that we must prepare for next year, which in their opinion will be very successful. On the second panel “Hosts in crisis and after”Participated Martina Nimac-Klacina, President of the Family Tourism Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Marijana Lulić, Head of the Department for State Administration of Lika-Senj County, Snježana Profozić, Head of the Department for Legal and General Affairs, Information and Education, Tax Administration – Karlovac Regional Office, Mira Špoljarić, Director of the Rakovica Tourist Board.last_img read more

We were playing our game right from the start. We served and passed really well against JC which allowed us to run our offense.Then we got into our second match of the day against BD and continued where we left off in the first. Then the unforced errors started which let them back into set one, but we were strong enough to finish the set. We took over again in set two.This was the second time we faced SM- the first at Southport. We came out like we had never played volleyball. We had 10 unforced hitting errors in the first set in addition to serving and passing errors. We didn’t even give ourselves a chance in that first set. But they regrouped and dominated the next two sets to finish the day 3-0 and walk out as champions.Courtesy of Trojans Coach Cassie Laker.last_img read more

first_imgUpdate on the latest sports August 23, 2020 Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditNHL-CAPITALS-REIRDEN FIREDCapitals fire coach Todd Reirden after 2 postseason letdownsWASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Capitals have fired coach Todd Reirden after a second consecutive first-round exit in the playoffs. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 will go on Sunday without fans in a bare-bones version of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Marco Andretti leads the field to green, a feat not accomplished by his famous family since Mario Andretti did it in 1987. Marco was just two months old when his grandfather won his last Indy pole. Marco’s father, uncle and cousin all failed to duplicate the effort. Mario’s victory in 1969 is the only Indy 500 win among five Andretti drivers covering 74 starts. It was Marco, as a rookie in 2006, who last came closest to ending the “Andretti Curse” when he was beaten at the finish line. Honda is attempting to end a two-year winning streak by Chevrolet, but the Chevy drivers are starting in the back of the pack. Fernando Alonso is among the many big names who will try to win from deep in the field.With the gates closed at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, some diehard fans set up chairs in gravel parking lots across the street from the speedway. Some also staked out spots along the fence on 16th Street, where gaps in the grandstands provided views of the track and an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the American classic. 2 pitchers try for 5th straight wins when Cubs face White SoxUNDATED (AP) — Yu Darvish tries for his career-high fifth straight win when he starts for the Cubs against the White Sox in the series finale at Wrigley Field.Darvish has dominated since losing his first outing of the season. The 34-year-old Japanese star traces some of his success to taking a more deliberate approach on the mound.He faces Dylan Cease, who has also won four straight starts, allowing just five earned runs in that span. The 24-year-old righty was drafted by the Cubs in 2014, and then traded across town with outfielder Eloy Jiménez in a package for pitcher José Quintana in July 2017. Cease has never faced the Cubs.Elsewhere in the majors: — Thirty-six-year-old right-hander Zack Greinke (GREHN’-kee) keeps chugging along as one of the best pitchers in the big leagues. The six-time All-Star and 2009 Cy Young Award winner has a 1.84 ERA through five starts, helping the Astros maintain a winning record despite a rash of injuries, including losing ace pitcher Justin Verlander. On Sunday, Grienke faces the San Diego Padres, who have quickly turned into one of the National League’s most intriguing teams. The Padres’ lineup is built around Fernando Tatis Jr. The 21-year-old shortstop is an MVP candidate with a .313 batting average, a big league-high 12 homers and six stolen bases through Friday’s games.— A pitiful season for Pittsburgh is showing faint signs of turning around. The Pirates won two games in a row for the first time all season by beating Milwaukee 12-5 on Saturday. Now they’ll go for three straight when right-hander JT Brubaker takes the mound. To say it’s been a rough start for the Pirates would be an understatement. Pittsburgh lost 17 of its first 21 games before the current two-game winning streak.WOMEN’S BRITISH OPEN304th-ranked Popov wins Women’s British Open for 1st majorTROON, Scotland (AP) — Sophia Popov became the first female golfer from Germany to capture a major title when she won the Women’s British Open by two strokes at Royal Troon on Sunday. The NFL uses BioReference for all its COVID-19 testing, though tests are handled by labs throughout the nation to ensure teams get results quickly. Heading into this weekend, there had been four confirmed positive tests for players who were at training camps.The Browns said initial results from the lab indicated multiple “presumptive positive cases” that included coaches, players and staff.INDY 500Indy 500 arrives with an Andretti up front and empty stands NFL-POSITIVE TESTSNFL: NJ lab finds positive COVID-19 tests from several teamsNEW YORK (AP) — The NFL revealed Sunday that several positive COVID-19 tests were found a day earlier by one of its testing partners, and the Chicago Bears said they had nine false positives.The league said it has asked the New Jersey lab BioReference to investigate the results “while the clubs work to confirm or rule out the positive tests.” The NFL did not identify the teams or say how many tests were positive.Two teams, Washington and Detroit, said they are practicing Sunday, while Cleveland has called off its workout. The Bears moved their practice scheduled for Sunday morning to the afternoon. The Jets canceled a walk-through on Saturday night but had a full practice Sunday morning after the previously positive tests came back negative. Associated Press Two second-round series beginUNDATED (AP) — Two second-round playoff series begin Sunday in the NHL.In Toronto, the Boston Bruins take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tampa Bay is still without Steven Stamkos, who hasn’t played since February after aggravating a core muscle injury that he had surgery on in March. But the Lightning have found a groove without him, beating the Blue Jackets in five games to get revenge for last year.In Edmonton, Alberta, the Vegas Golden Knights face the Vancouver Canucks. Coach Peter DeBoer hasn’t named his starting goaltender. Marc-Andre Fleury has started two of the Golden Knights’ eight games since NHL play resumed. Robin Lehner has started the other six and could be the Game 1 starter Sunday. Fleury is 12-2-2 against the Canucks and hasn’t lost to them since 2006. MLB-SCHEDULE General manager Brian MacLellan announced the move Sunday, three days after the Capitals lost to former coach Barry Trotz’s New York Islanders in a five-game series.Washington opted to promote Reirden from the top assistant job and let Trotz leave rather than give him a raise after winning the Stanley Cup in 2018. Trotz’s Islanders reached the second round of the postseason for a second consecutive season. The Capitals failed to advance past the first in back-to-back years for the first time since 2013 and 2014.The Capitals are still considered championship contenders, and captain Alex Ovechkin has one year remaining on his contract.Reirden was another first-time NHL head coach hired during the Ovechkin era. Trotz was the only one with previous experience and the only coach to get Washington past the second round, let alone win the Cup. NBA PLAYOFFSFour Game 4s SundayLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The Dallas Mavericks hope Luka Doncic (DAHN’-chihch) will be healthy enough to play Sunday in Game 4 of their first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Los Angeles leads 2-1. Doncic sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Dallas’ 130-122 loss to the Clippers on Friday night. Coach Rick Carlisle said Doncic would likely be a game-time decision. Los Angeles leads the best-of-seven series 2-1.In Sunday’s other Game 4s, Boston takes a 3-0 series lead into its game against Philadelphia; Toronto is up 3-0 over Brooklyn; and Utah leads its series against Denver 2-1.NHL PLAYOFFS Popov, who went into the final round with a three-shot lead, bounced back from bogeying the first hole by making five birdies in her 3-under 68. Jasmine Suwannapura was the runner-up after shooting 67.It completed one of the most unlikely wins in the tournament’s history. Popov is ranked No. 304 and dropped off the LPGA Tour last year. She hadn’t previously won on the LPGA Tour, the second-tier Symetra Tour or on the Ladies European Tour.The winner’s check of $675,000 is more than six times her entire career earnings before Sunday.last_img read more

first_imgJürgen Klopp was occupied with keeping the Premier League title race alive in between Champions League dates with Barcelona yet found time for a history lesson with Liverpool’s players before the formidable task that awaits on Tuesday.It concerned the art of recovering from a 3-0 defeat against Spanish opposition and the willingness, should another feat of Anfield escapology prove beyond them, to “fail in the most beautiful way”.Klopp has savoured a European comeback as Liverpool manager before, when his new team were twice left needing three goals to overcome his old one, Borussia Dortmund, in the 2016 Europa League quarter-finals.They delivered on that raucous night at Anfield, but without Mohamed Salah – whose concussion sustained against Newcastle means a mandatory six-day break before he can return against Wolves on Sunday – and injured Roberto Firmino, and against Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, it would eclipse anything the stadium has witnessed in European competition to preserve Klopp’s record of never having lost a Uefa knockout tie as the Liverpool manager.His own past provides a glimmer of hope.“I don’t think too much about Dortmund,” Klopp admitted before the semi-final second leg. “My own personal little story is about Real Madrid, five years ago with Dortmund. We lost 3-0 there (in a Champions League quarter-final) but then at home we changed seven or eight positions and won 2-0 and we should have won 5-0 without a shadow of a doubt.But it was Madrid then and it’s Barcelona now. It’s a big difference. I don’t want to talk too much but I have told the players that story. It doesn’t mean that it will happen again but it is enough for me to believe.”Klopp said in the immediate aftermath of that quarter-final second leg: “You could make a video of this game and show it to the teams that lose a first leg 3-0.”He hinted at following his own advice for the return with Barcelona and catching out the Spanish champions with a change in formation and a selection surprise such as Xherdan Shaqiri or Rhian Brewster.“We changed the team on purpose,” he added of the Dortmund-Real tie. “Oliver Kirch had played only a couple of games and everyone was thinking; ‘Who’s that guy?’ But he played an unbelievable game that night against Madrid. A lot of things are possible. It’s about how much.Can we believe at the beginning in the opportunity? Then we have to do the right things on the pitch and then you need a bit of luck, which we didn’t have in Barcelona. Then we need a fantastic atmosphere.“We have two of the best strikers in the world not involved, so of course we need the crowd involved. Some things will be new, 100%, with not really any time to train.That’s how it is but I am still looking forward to it. It’s the Champions League and you want to be a part of it. We were so happy when we came through the quarter-final. Now we are in the semi and we have to use the second leg.”While Ernesto Valverde was resting every Barcelona player who started the first leg from Saturday’s 2-0 defeat by Celta Vigo, Klopp was losing Salah to a head injury sustained in the late win at Newcastle.Tuesday will be the first time he has been without both Salah and Firmino for a Champions League or Premier League game.Brewster, the highly rated 19-year-old who has not made his first-team debut yet, and has been sidelined for 14 months by ankle and knee surgery, will feature in some capacity. “It’s guaranteed,” confirmed Klopp.“He’s ready. Rhian has now arrived with us after being heavily injured. Day by day he has got better and he has been in outstanding shape for the last three or four weeks but the other players were there as well. Next season he will be playing 100% and he knows that. I have told him already.Now it’s really nice, in a difficult situation, that we can give him that spot in the squad and have him there to bring on as a striker. When you’re on the bench, you are an option to play.”Klopp was encouraged by Liverpool’s bravery in Barcelona and the quality of chances created, if not taken. His team’s predicament means there has been no request to Ulla, Klopp’s wife, to prepare a party for after Tuesday’s semi-final but the occasion remains one to cherish.The Liverpool manager explained: “We want to celebrate the Champions League campaign, either with a proper finish or another goal. That is the plan: just try. If we can do it, wonderful. If not, then fail in the most beautiful way. I had these games quite a few times. In my experience, it’s not that before the game you think: ‘Yes, I believe we will do it.’ But I’m completely fine with the chance. Less than them, but we have at least a chance.“They are halfway through, that’s the absolute truth, but as long as it’s not decided that is the competition. I don’t tell my missus: ‘Wait for me at home, we will have a party after the game because we’ll win it.’“We have to work for it. We believe in the chance, we believe in the opportunity, not in the result. There are a lot of other components that are important as well. We have to change again obviously and we will see how we deal with that. In general the shape is good and the confidence is there, so we should try it.” Source: Guardianlast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Pork Checkoff has selected 12 college students from around the country to be a part of the #RealPigFarming Student Social Forces team this year. Participants were selected based on their involvement in the pork industry and their strong communication skills. The team will be active through the end of the year.Included in the group is Karli Lane, from Castalia, Ohio, who is studying animal sciences with a specialization in biosciences at The Ohio State University.“Social media is ingrained in young people’s daily lives,” said Claire Masker, public relations manager for the Pork Checkoff. “It’s easy for them to share their thoughts about an industry that they are proud to be a part of.”Consumers continue to have questions about how pigs are raised, and no one knows the answers better than pork producers. The Pork Checkoff’s social media outreach program is helping real farmers share real stories with consumers through #RealPigFarming. The hashtag before Real Pig Farming helps people search social media posts with the same phrase, making it easier for them to follow conversations.“The social forces team will be encouraged to use #RealPigFarming as advocates for the pork industry,” Masker said. “Through social forces, the students will be able to improve their communications skills and expand their professional network.”last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Tony Nye is a man on a mission.A serious heart-related illness in late 2017 shook him to his core. It also convinced him that many farmers, both small-scale and large-scale, need to hear what he has to say.“I was as close to knocking on the Pearly Gates as possible before I turned the corner,” he recalled.After surgery, he lost both weight and strength and spent a month in the hospital.“I wasn’t able to return to the barns for almost six months,” he said.Those barns are on his 50-acre Fayette County farm, where Nye raises meat goats and purebred swine. The farm also includes some grain production, plus pasture ground for the goats.Luckily for the family, his then 17-year-old son was able to step in and care for the livestock during his Dad’s illness. That care included not only feeding and watering during the bitter winter weather, but also farrowing numerous pig litters and making important decisions related to animal health, finances and marketing. But Nye realizes that things could have ended up much differently.He plans to discuss the “what ifs” and the impacts it had on his family farm on Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Farm Science Review, an agricultural trade show held yearly at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London and sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. His presentation on “Be Prepared if Tragedy Strikes on the Farm,” is set for 11 a.m. at the Small Farms Center tent.In addition to farming, Nye also works as the agricultural and natural resources Extension educator in Clinton County and is the statewide small farm coordinator for OSU Extension, the outreach arm of The Ohio State University and its College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. Now eight months after his heart scare, he still has only returned to the office on a part-time basis.“Fortunately I am still among the living and our farm is still operating. Lots of decisions had to be made quickly and, honestly, we were not prepared,” he said.Nye wants farmers to realize that they aren’t invincible and to recognize the importance of family communication and contingency plans.“Tragedy can mean many things on a farm—everything from a barn fire and severe illness to a car accident, death or lost crop due to hail or a windstorm,” he said. “Any of these things can create financial and physical stress for the family.”When it comes to estate planning, farmers often only think about retirement and who to pass the farm to. Much more should be addressed, Nye noted.“Written directives are so very important,” he said. “They require communication and transparency among all family members.“If you don’t talk about it ahead of time, how can you plan for it?” Nye said. “I will discuss the whole thought process around ‘what if’ and preparing for the unthinkable.”Among the recommendations he will discuss are that families should:Recognize the critical importance of communication.Talk openly about the “what ifs.”Share with all family members the need for a plan in the event of a tragedy. Identify who will make the day-to-day decisions and other key people that should be involved. Is there someone who wants to keep the farm going?Understand each other’s role and performance expectations.Evaluate the situation from the standpoint of both financial and physical labor challenges. Have written goals and objectives to help guide necessary decisions.Draw up a will to help the family know what to do in the event of death.Consider a lawyer or tax preparer to discuss financial and legal decisions.Compile a list of the farm’s support network including individuals such as an attorney, veterinarian, insurance agent, seed and fertilizer dealer, neighbors, and even the local Extension educator.last_img read more
