Op-ed: How Data Science Can Make Business Travel Profitable

September 28, 2017 Business News No Comments Email Email

I’m writing to offer an op-ed from Andrew Jordan Chief Technology Officer and Eric Tyree, Chief Data Scientist at Carlson Wagonlit Travel on the opportunities that data science presents for the travel industry.As you may know, data science presents immense opportunities to transform the way businesses operate and help them gain a competitive advantage. There’s a lot of data in corporate travel, and this can make it hard to use effectively.

Travel data has to be read differently and opened up to other parties such as HR, sales and financial departments. It’s about bringing together separate interests and creating new KPIs to measure the effectiveness of travel programs. It is data for data’s sake, but instead about how companies use that information to improve their travel programs to benefit both the company and the traveller.
