Blinded by data science? Explore the myths of big data.


Join us for episode 36 of Discover Performance Weekly to discuss the myths and realities behind a data-driven organization and the recent trend of hiring data scientists.

HP Software evangelist and VP of Strategic Marketing, Paul Muller (@xthestreams), sits down with Peter Fishman, the director of analytics for Yammer. Paul and Peter will discuss how organizations can better position themselves to mine, manipulate and present data when it all just sounds like industry buzz words. 

This video is part of a recent article in Discover Performance called, "Why good data can lead you to bad conclusions."

In this episode, Paul and Peter discuss topics like:
