Each month, “Ammirati on Innovation” episodes will look at ways that the disruptive-startup mentality is spreading beyond young entrepreneurs to big established corporations. Serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and Carnegie Mellon B-school professor Sean Ammirati, who sits at the intersection of these high-change dynamics, provides insight. Today, Sean and I talk about the new concept of digital twins, following Google Cloud’s new product release, and the absolute importance of strong data pipelines.
The Big Themes:
- Your data pipeline is key: A strong data pipeline with a decent model is better than an awesome model with a weak data pipeline
- Sit down with the executives: It’s relevant at the executive level as well. Guys at the CEO level like Cloud Wars All-Star Tony Uphoff are pushing the envelope through data.
- In data analysis, there’s a war for high quality talent: Figure out how to get better candidates into the top of your funnel and move the right candidates through that funnel faster.
The Big Quote: “I think this concept of just digital twins in general is something that you’re going to see start to radiate across more and more of complex systems.”
