Jay Zaidi: Age of Data

  • Wednesday, December 14, 2016
  • 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Thrivent Financial


Registration is closed



We are living in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The term I use for this is the "Age of Data". Organizations are being forced to transform their operations to deal with this new reality. Data Management and Data Science have therefore taken center stage. Leaders must become data-savvy and data-driven and focus on Risk Management, use data to innovate, and make better decisions through Insights driven by Data Science. Data practitioners play a critical role in the transformation and change journey. In this presentation Jay will focus on the fundamental data management building blocks, the maturity journey and how Data Science and Data Management can be deployed effectively to drive value and mitigate risks.




Jay founded AlyData to provide advisory and execution services to business leaders on how they can leverage their most strategic asset - DATA - to gain deeper insights, optimize decisions and mitigate risks better. AlyData is based in Washington DC and specialises in Data Science and Data Management (i.e., Data Governance, Data Quality, Master Data Management, Data Privacy and Security, and Metadata Management). Prior to AlyData, Jay led Enterprise Data Management functions at Fannie Mae for 13 years, reporting directly to the Chief Data Officer. In July 2016, Jay authored two books on Data-Driven Leadership. One is titled "Data-Driven Leaders Always Win" and the second one is "Data-Driven Leadership: A New Leadership Paradigm in the Digital Age". He has a M.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M and a B.E. in Electrical Engineering.
