Rob Corbin ( @robcorbin ) is a senior manager at EMC where he runs a marketing data science team. As with many data science professionals he comes to his current role from a technical background and with an understanding of Agile. During his tenure at EMC, he’s supported a lot of business transformation with the help of the EMC Big Data portfolio. He was also able to use these same Big Data technologies from EMC to assist with Marketing Analytics efforts.

He’ll tell us how he used agile techniques to drive business transformation at a big company, in a dynamic industry and how he is dealing with future uncertainties.

“Uncertainty” is the theme of our conversation in this podcast:

  • How does Agile help manage uncertainty?
  • How can marketing leadership embrace uncertainty?
  • How do different parts of the business adapt their approach in the face of varying degrees of uncertainty?
  • And, will Rob answer any questions about with EMC acquisition before the deal is sealed? (we promised not to get Rob in any hot water 🙂 )

Data is at the heart of what makes the Agile approach work so we hope you’ll take away some ideas about how to engage more effectively with the data scientists in your organization. If you don’t yet have a data science practice we hope that Rob’s insights might help you get started.

Impressions from the inaugural Strata+Hadoop World Singapore 2015

There’s never a second chance to make a first impression, right? Well, the first session at the inaugural O’Reilly Strata+Hadoop World Singapore conference in my hometown left a remarkable impression on me.

In the evening of December 1st, 2015, I jumped out of a cab in the heart of the undeniably smartest city on the planet, whizzed by 3-storey tall 60-meter (200 feet) wide “Big Picture” screen at Suntec Conventions Centre,

SunTec Digital TV Wall Singapore

– the largest High Definition TV wall in the world – and picked up my EMC Exhibitor Badge. I rushed straight in to the only conference session of that day, the pre-keynote “PechaKucha Night”.

Wait, went straight in to… what?
