Thomas has a rich history in people-science, but a present and future in using AI to empower individuals and teams to feel more connected at work. This session will talk about the 2-year journey that Thomas has been on from BI to AI. At the heart of this was their migration from Snowflake to Databricks (which they did in only 4 weeks) that provided the foundation for their data science team to build on their ability to deliver accurate, actionable predictions to the business, to developing AI endpoints directly into their product. We will cover :

  • How we evaluated our previous data stack
  • Evaluated what we needed to scale and grow
  • Our lightening-quick migration (with the definitive Dos and Donts to make it a success at that speed)
  • How we met and exceeded upon previous costs and business deliverables from that migration
  • Our present and future in our AI framework that underpins how we are changing the way people communicate and collaborate the workplace
