To build a solid foundation for any AI or ML strategy, businesses need to be equipped with the right tools to harness the power of their data. At the Strata conference, we aim to bring together the most influential business decision makers to share their tips and tricks on just how to do this.

“The data industry is growing so fast and we’re often subjected to ‘digital overload’.
