In this episode I'm joined by Gershon Venkatsamy who is a Data Engineering Manager at Netcare in South Africa. Gershon shares his experiences in building a data centric organisation and how data analytics has been used, in the healthcare industry, to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. We also talk at length about skills development.
In this episode I'm joined by Emmanuel Osanga who heads up the Data Office for Standard Bank's Africa regions. This is no small task - there are 17 countries in Emmanuel's portfolio. And he's working on building a data driven culture across all of them.
To achieve this Emmanuel suggests 3 key things as part of a culture change framework:
1. Move the hearts and minds of the people and you're halfway there
2. Ensure that the data strategy is aligned to the business strategy
3. Make the journey exciting!
