The data team is a brand new thing: it’s not IT, it’s not finance, it’s not any of the typical business functions within an operating business. So…who does it report to? How does it interact with the rest of the organization? How big is it?
These are all questions that are getting answered in real-time throughout the industry. And they’re likely questions that you have as you go about constructing, or re-architecting, your data team. As of today, there are no clear answers. Companies are answering these questions in a bunch of different ways, all customized to their particular businesses.
Fantastic, well-researched piece by the Fishtown Analytics team.
