Bukralia to speak about data science to NEW startup group

Rajeev Bukralia will present a talk on data science and data strategy at the upcoming meeting of Digital Fertilizer — a community of high-tech startups and entrepreneurs in Northeast Wisconsin — at 6 p.m. next Monday (Sept. 14) at the Green Room Lounge in De Pere. The talk, “Data, Data, Everywhere: Harnessing Data for Competitive Advantage,” will discuss strategies for overcoming organizational barriers, managing data related risks, and catalyzing innovation through data analytics. The talk will investigate how some organizations are using data strategies to create competitive advantage.

“In an age of big data, organizations are able to collect and store a staggering amount of data,” Bukralia says. “Yet, the process of harnessing data is riddled with complex barriers related to organizational culture, business processes, and technology.”

Bukralia is director of data science outreach and computer science lecturer at UWGB. He is teaching in the new master’s degree program in data science. His research focuses on data analytics, machine learning, big data, and IT strategy.
