    DASCA Stakeholders

    While technology and Data Science professionals are the reason DASCA exists, organizations developing technologies, tools, applications and solutions related to big data are DASCA’s primary stakeholders. Next come user-organizations that deploy Data Science to correct their strategic postures, enhance their competitiveness, refine their business concepts, and optimize their value-delivery systems. Additionally, national governments and international bodies promoting and deploying Data Science technologies for growth drive some of DASCA’s key initiatives. Hence, accountability to excellence is the paradigm guiding all strategies, actions and decisions taken at DASCA.
