Data-Driven: Leveraging Data For A Superior Digital Experience – A Spirited Dialogue Series

Asanka and I were going back and forth on the topics we must tackle on Spirited Dialogue. We both landed on the exciting topic of data and how it drives business strategy, tactics, and outcomes. But it is a vast topic with so many aspects of data that we felt we could not do any justice with a single episode. So, we have made this into a 3- or 4-part series on data strategy called “Data-Driven: Leveraging Data for a Superior Digital Experience.”

We are also honored to be joined by Sunil Sharma as our subject matter expert on all things data. He is a thought leader and strategist and a wonderful human being. Sunil has transformed several organizations through his remarkable knowledge of technology and data.
