PULSEcast Ep. 8 – Jeff Fried: A Deep Dive on Data Operationalization
Jeff Fried is passionate about helping people create data-driven applications that empower their decision-making. It’s this very passion that drives Fried, director of product management at InterSystems and a self-proclaimed data management nerd, to encourage the enterprise-level operationalization of data — a process that strictly defines variables into measurable factors. Operationalization defines fuzzy concepts (of which there are many in the tip-of-the-spear world of data analytics) and allows them to be measured empirically and quantitatively.
Keep in mind that data operationalization isn’t new and shouldn’t be feared. Industries like banking and retail are long-time beneficiaries of so-called “data opps.” Healthcare, on the other hand, has been slower to the draw. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late. In fact, in an industry where data operationalization isn’t yet widespread, those who take action now stand to gain solid footing on which to better serve their patient populations and serious competitive advantage.
What exactly are those advantages? Tune in to this episode of InterSystems PULSEcast to find out. Along the way, Fried will help you discover how to put pragmatic plans in place that smooth operations and bring direct business benefit to your organization through data operationalization.
