ANNOTATION:

In the first use case, we will analyze impact variation of different attribution of email can have on key engagement metrics. While diving into the analytical pipeline we will focus on feature engineering, we will touch statistical analysis and implementation of results into business process as well.

In the second, independent, use-case we will enrich the dataset with records from other communication channels to compare their efficiency to promote selected product. Together we will focus on how choice of the analytical method could influence results to illustrate need for critical thinking and validation of results within data scientists work.

After successfully completing these two use cases you will understand variety of tasks data scientists face: from preparation of data, through analysis to meaningful presentation of results and have better understanding what skills productive data scientist needs to possess.

In the third part, Ondrej will describe a journey, that need to be taken when you would like to create a report from raw data. This will help you to understand the scope of Data Engineer/ BI developer work, the complexity of task and the multivariate of skillset that you need to have to be an expert in this area. Also, it should be helpful to understand different type of the roles that are needed and fit them into the bigger picture.
