The data transformation journey at Specsavers - moving from a very immature data organization to a data-driven organization - is ongoing. Over the last five years, we have completely re-platformed and scaled our data team from 5 to 90 across governance, enablement, engineering, and data science. All this has led to our marketing efforts delivering more value, helping achieve our clinical goals around preventing blindness, and winning several awards, including Best Place to Work in Data and Data for Healthcare. The Databricks Data Intelligence Platform has been a core part of our tech stack. We are implementing Unity Catalog - which will help solve some of our current governance and data security challenges.
