Jonathan Regenstein | Building Relationships with IT and Non-Data Scientists
We were recently joined by Jonathan Regenstein, Head of Data and Quantamental Research at Truist Securities. Working with IT and building relationships was a focus in our conversation with Jonathan. He included a few tips for building relationships with non-data scientist colleagues.
Find a partner within the IT organization and talk to that person at least once a week. IT can help you communicate value proposition along the way as well.
“It sounds crazy to say this in the world of data science, but relationship building was critical to what we did, especially at a bank. Thousands of request for new technology. There’s no way to avoid going through all the security scans and check marks that we have to go through. We want to make sure we have a good partner who is going to help us do that”
