As with any business strategist, understanding and growing the value of business assets is a prerequisite for performance. Data Asset Management (DAM) is a key skill for data strategists because the outcomes, quality of recommendations and advice of data strategists is increasingly connected with the quality of the data. Therefore data strategists need to be aware of the best practices for collecting, curating and managing the value of data within an organization. In addition, it is important to know what methods are suitable for which types of data (i.e. computer vision vs. text, data 360). For example, Deep Learning methods are often more useful when working with large amounts of unstructured data.
