Experiencing Data Podcast

Now in the top 2% of all podcasts globally

Are you an enterprise data or product leader seeking to increase the user adoption and business value of your ML/AI and analytical data products?

While it is easier than ever to create ML and analytics from a technology perspective, do you find that getting users to use, buyers to buy, and stakeholders to make informed decisions with data remains challenging?

If you lead an enterprise data team, have you heard that a "data product" approach can help—but you're not sure what that means, or whether software product management and UX design principles can really change consumption of ML and analytics?

My name is Brian T. O'Neill, and on Experiencing Dataone of the top 2% of podcasts in the world—I offer you a consulting product designer's perspective on why simply creating ML models and analytics dashboards aren't sufficient to routinely produce outcomes for your users, customers, and stakeholders. My goal is to help you design more useful, usable, and delightful data products by better understanding your users, customers, and business sponsor's needs. After all, you can't produce business value with data if the humans in the loop can't or won't use your solutions.

Every 2 weeks, I release solo episodes and interviews with chief data officers, data product management leaders, and top UX design and research professionals working at the intersection of ML/AI, analytics, design and product—and now, I'm inviting you to join us.

An oasis of design for analytics

HCD paired with Analytics is something I’ve thought about for a while. It still feels like not enough people really embrace it. Stumbling upon this podcast was like finding a little oasis of hope. Well done!

Great insights, in this to-the-point podcast

Great podcast on the human side of data science. Brian asks questions that trigger interesting responses from the well-established guests. Lots of insights, how we can use empathy to build better data products. I appreciate the human centric approach.

Tremendously valuable…Insights in how to think about analytics projects

Many of the blog posts, podcasts, etc. are focused on the technical "how" behind analytics and visualization (e.g. which library or tool to use, streaming or batch). This podcast focuses more on the critical link between the business strategy, user experience and use case for analytics projects and the technical underpinnings. For anyone looking at making their data products more successful, these discussions are tremendously valuable.


Top notch…entertaining and informative content!

As a data analyst and consumer of many data related podcast, I found Brian’s show to be top notch as its very informative and insightful. If you enjoy designing and building great data products that meet the needs of your business users, then you should check out this show!
