About the Webinar

How does one go about exploring data with the aim of getting insights out of it? Anand S, Founder and CEO of Gramener, is frequently approached by professionals asking questions like where should they source the data from. But once you’ve got the data, the next questions to ask are:

  • How do you get interesting stories out of this data?
  • And how do you narrate these stories?

The first step here is to figure out what the interesting insight is. A fair bit of this is understanding the domain well enough, and people miss tend to miss out the soft skills aspect. The second step involves converting these insights into a series of questions that the data can answer.

Are there patterns of questions that we can pose to the data and is there a systematic and structured way by which we can explore it? This talk by Anand S will answer these questions and more.


Anand S – Founder and CEO, Gramener

Anand is founder and CEO of Gramener, a leading Data Science company. Anand provides the technology leadership and strategic direction to the organization. Anand and his team explore insights from data and communicate these as visual stories.

He has an MBA from IIM Bangalore and a B.Tech from IIT Madras. He has worked at IBM, Lehman Brothers, The Boston Consulting Group and Infosys Consulting. He blogs at S-ANAND.NET. Anand is a data geek and his affair with programmatically analyzing data began back in the mid-nineties when he was in college at IIT Madras. Taking off from there, Anand was drawn into the maze of data and his initial tools were Linux based grep, sed and awk. He then moved on to Shell scripts and PERL. “Tools are never the concern, the motive and the execution is,” believes Anand.
