A well-structured plan for using external or “alternative” data in your data science and analytics practice can be a competitive advantage. The problem is the external data ecosystem is fragmented and expanding rapidly. Thousands of data outlets that are not normalized or easy to procure makes the data wrangling task even more challenging, but not insurmountable. 

Join this interactive session with experts from Ready Signal as they explore strategies to mature your data integration and decision intelligence processes. Session takeaways include:

 - Evolving your data strategy: The Importance of Alternative Data 

- Overcoming challenges in building quality alternative data sources into analytics workflows and predictive models.
