Roles to help unravel Big Data

Companies today are challenged with having an overabundance of information about their customers. Managing and obtaining insights from Big Data involves multiple roles.

  • Solution Seeker: This is the champion or person who is seeking an answer to a specific business question.
  • Liaison: This person has an intimate understanding of how the work gets done.
  • Customer Representative: Generally this is the customer experience professional who understands the customer perspective and can represent their voice in the insight discovery process.
  • Task Tracker: Someone needs to keep the project on track and push the team towards completion of action items.
  • Data Detangler: This role supports the alignment of disparate data sources and enables the integration of insights into decision support systems.
  • Analyst: Whether the initiative requires basic or sophisticated analysis, someone will need to explore, synthesize, and prioritize the data.
  • Messenger: Communication is important. This task is focused on cutting through the clutter to ensure others understand the insight and are equipped to take the appropriate actions.
  • Outside perspective: The objective here is to bring new ideas and challenge the cultural barriers.
