Thinking like a Data-Driven Guy for Dropbox

dropbox

When I used Dropbox for the first time from my Linux box, it was a shining moment for me. In that time, I was looking precisely for a solution for my files that I used to let behind always in my USB memory. For every Linux user, which many of them loves Open Source software; collaboration is an important issue, and Dropbox came to save my work a lot of times, because the platform itself, is a synonym of collaboration, and this is one of the reason why I love the platform.

The other reason why I love the platform, that they use my favorite programming language for the core development of the proprietary synchronization daemon: Python, and 2012, Guido, the creator of the language was included in Dropbox’s payroll: Just awesome !!!

So, I want to do my little contribution to the platform, writing some ideas how to improve it and the business itself. I will divide this in some key points:

  • Improve blogging frequency in Tech’s blog about Data Science at Dropbox
  • Improve user engagement in Mobile devices using Localytics services
  • Hire to Greg Nudelman like consultant to improve Dropbox for Android, and work with Mailbox’s team for Android-based version
  • Build a high class Data Science team to get more useful and better insights from Dropbox massive data sets
  • Improve Marketing efforts using Inbound Marketing techniques focused on Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogging, ebooks, etc

MSBA from NYU Stern: Born to shape Data Science Leaders

NYU Stern School of Business

Some days ago, I wrote a Tweet message that changed my perspective about Business Analytics. That message was sent to Anindya Ghose (@aghose), a professor of the well known New York Stern School of Business and Co-director of the Center for Business Analytics in the same institution. He is an expert in Social Media Analytics, Advertising effectiveness (one of the my favorite research fields), Mobile Advertising market and a lot of amazing stuff that you will amazed for his commitment.

But, he is not alone. With him, there are other brilliant minds working all together to create an amazing Master degree in Business Analytics. Who are? I will mention just two: Sinan Aral, another research leader in Social Networks, Social Media and Digital Strategy, and a Microsoft Faculty Fellow, who wrote an amazing article about the Power of Influence in Social Marketing in the Harvard Business Review, and the professor Vasant Dhar who is the Head of the Information Systems Group at New York University Stern School of Business. Dr. Dhar’s research is focused on Data-driven predictive analytics in Finance, Healthcare, and Social Phenomena. Continue reading “MSBA from NYU Stern: Born to shape Data Science Leaders”

The idea of this post came to me when I was reading a great article called “Reinventing Your Business Model” from Harvard Business Review, where Mark W. Johnson, Clayton M. Christensen and Henning Kagermann described in a remarkable way how to embrace innovation and create business models that disrupt industries, and how to change it if you think that’s not working. Highly recommended reading for business leaders, current and future entrepreneurs, product managers, critical thinkers, etc.
