In this session, Neudata’s Head of Consulting will discuss ways in which vendors can strategically enter the Alt-data market, saving precious time and resources in designing products which the buy-side won’t buy. How can we leverage what we already know about supply and demand in the market to allow for smoother, faster, and more lucrative sales-cycles? Whether you’re an existing vendor or a new market entrant- this session is for you.
