This MYOB session focuses on the need to digitally transform a workforce in order to take advantage of the many advances and opportunities data literacy and visualization make possible in modern times. Northeast Ohio needs 700 Data Scientists and 700 Cyber Security leads by 2020, and currently we have less than 70 of each.
