Building Data-Centric Businesses

Both digital and traditional businesses are constantly evolving, and the need to move fast is a pervasive reality. Delivering what customers want and need goes beyond the creation of delivery channels. In fact, it relies on the company’s ability to produce, consume, organise, understand, curate, and distribute data.

Whether it's big data, data lakes, or data science, what really matters is the ability to put data at the center. Data-centric organisations understand the value of data and work hard to create the necessary processes, structures, culture, and technological ecosystem that enable experimentation and quick delivery of the right piece of work.

In this presentation by ThoughtWorks and REA, Dan Aragao and Simon Hope provide a glimpse of the journey that ThoughtWorks and REA are currently undergoing to create a truly data-centric, cutting-edge digital business. They discuss challenges faced, good architectural and behavioural patterns, technologies adopted, and lessons learned in order to better handle data at an organisational level.
