Scaling your data team is a fairly complex topic, but we’re going to break it down into a few crucial talking points:

  • Centralized vs decentralized analytics
  • The right tools for the job
  • The right people for the job  

Before we get started with the real meat of this article, I’d like to give you some background information about myself and my company.

About me

I’m currently Senior Director of Toast BI. We aim to drive data informed decisions. Toast is an all-encompassing online platform for restaurants. We started as a point-of-sale system, and we’ve become so much more.

Now, we offer capital and have online ordering, loyalty cards, and a marketing suite. Toast was my first venture into the B2B world.

Before that, my experience was in e-commerce. I also spent some time doing economic consulting, focusing on airlines and energy. Most notably, working on the Continental United Merger for the Department of Justice.
