This session will facilitate a discussion exploring the differences in data work between different industries, including eCommerce, Insurance, Cyber Security, and Finance.
We will discuss the challenges and opportunities of data work in each industry, as well as the skills and knowledge that data professionals may need, in order to be successful. We will cover Data Engineering and Data Science specifically, but this is an open forum for anyone to discuss data challenges in different industries.
