A data-driven culture empowers companies to deliver greater value to their customers, yet many organizations still struggle to break down cultural barriers and drive data-driven innovation across their products. Lucian Lita, Mita Mahadevan, Shalin Mantri, and Gabrielle Gianelli explore Intuit's, Uber's, and Etsy's A/B platforms, which enable experimentation and engender a data-driven mentality.

Thomas Beer (Continental), Felix Werkmeister (Continental)
Experience tells us a decision is only as good as the information it is based on. The same is true for driving. The better a vehicle knows its surroundings, the better it can support the driver. Information makes vehicles safer, more efficient, and more comfortable. Thomas Beer and Felix Werkmeister explain how Continental exploits big data technologies for building information-driven vehicles.
