Brought to life in a data lab. Hangs out in a dungeon/server room. Is there anything Jim Harris doesn’t have on his resume? He also serves as blogger-in-chief at OCDQ, so you could say that writing about data is what makes Jim feel most aliiiive.
Meet the judges
These guys might look scary, but they’re all data experts who like nothing more than to honor other people in their field. Meet this year’s judges:
No, no, there’s nothing unusual about Dylan Jones. He’s been writing posts for The Data Roundtable for years. No fear of silver bullets. His knuckles? Not especially hairy. Pretty sure we’ve seen him around during a full moon. He’ll tell you himself that he’s the founder of Data Quality Prooooooooo. Wait. What was that?
There, in the dark of night, lurks a shadowy figure who’s…just finishing up a white paper on master data management. Behold! It’s David Loshin, a brilliantly prolific author and expert in data quality, MDM and business intelligence. He’s the one who’ll put a nail in the coffin of your biggest data problem.
This data management expert may very well be the happiest mad data scientist you know. She’s president of DBTech Solutions and has worked with clients in practically every industry (and has the horror stories to prove it). So what’s that bubbling away in her evil laboratory? Oh, just some fun she’s cooking up.
Brains! (Yep, she’s got ‘em). As a senior data analyst for iJet International and the 2012 Data Steward of the Year, Falguni dominates in her field. She’s known for inspiring co-workers, keeping clients happy and settling for nothing less than high-quality data. And, of course, for wandering the streets as one of the walking dead. Wait! No – our mistake. Wrong Falguni.
Book this data expert for a speaking engagement and you won’t know whether you’re getting Phil, or DR. PHIL (wait…scratch that. You probably won’t get Dr. Phil). But you will get a whip-smart, quick-witted, pop culture-lovin’ author and speaker who knows everything there is to know about data.
What’s life like as the pieced-together bride of a big, green, horrific monster? Lee Strode wouldn’t know – she’s too busy solving data challenges at Capital One. She’s also the 2014 Data Steward of the Year, which makes her way more of a revolutionary than a lady with lightning-bolt hair.
