International Management know-how empowered by Big Data

A large amount of unstructured data collected needs to not only be stored but also analyzed and efficiently utilized.

You will coordinate corresponding projects, and act as the interface between senior management, data engineers, and data analysts. You understand the principles of information management and artificial intelligence. You have a sense of new technologies and their applications in a business environment. And you are able to align those activities with the company’s strategy by understanding your management’s needs.

Lastly, you will use your expertise to critically analyze current advancements in the industry, differentiate between short-lived trends and realistic solutions, and advise senior management accordingly.
