You’ve collected a ton of data and your team is busily crunching numbers and coming to conclusions… but are they the right ones? You can only know with the right context and you can’t get context working in a silo. We invite you to bring the rest of the world into your data warehouse. Don’t worry, it’ll add more value than it takes and instead of working on the data, you can work on your vision.

In this talk, we’ll allay your fears of open data, demonstrate the difference between making decisions with and without context and show you other neat things that happen when you share.
