Volvo Cars has successfully integrated data
from many different business functions in the Volvo Data Warehouse. To
accelerate our investment pay-off, we started up a cross-functional
business analytics group, applying data science and supporting advances
in analytics to big data integrated with our traditional data sources.
core analytics group is embedded in the business, works across
functions and closely with the IT function in Volvo Cars to enable
coordinated delivery and impact.
Volvo Cars will present the
approach and working model with the business and relevant analytical use
cases, together with the organizational and cultural challenges we are
facing in starting up and growing this initiative. Also described are
skills we look for in our data scientists, and the analytical governance
that will support the process. Today, this group targets realizing
values in areas ranging from connecting with consumers to understanding
and realizing the values of the connected car.
Wassén is Business Analytics Director at Volvo Cars - responsible for
the corporate wide roll out of Advanced Analytics. Jan has spent over 30
years with purchasing, material quality and engineering at both Volvo,
Renault and Ford.
