Roundtable discussion: Centralised or distributed – Where do data analysts really belong?

Presented by:
Vojta Kopal

Talk focus:


Talk details:

Companies are continuously trying to optimise and figure out the following: What is the optimal place for data analysts within an organisation? Should they be part of cross-functional product teams or form centralised and specialised data teams? What does leadership expect versus what’s the reality? Mews has tried both and has learned a lot along the way. During this roundtable discussion, Vojta would like to open up the floor to hear other people’s take on how to tackle this tricky “issue”.

How do roundtable discussions work?

  • Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
  • Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
  • The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
    • 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
    • 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
  • Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be 30 chairs set up for an audience.

Don’t worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
