Creating a Data-Driven Culture at ADP with Jack Berkowitz

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

About This Episode

Today we continue our 2021 re:Invent series joined by Jack Berkowitz, chief data officer at ADP. In our conversation with Jack, we explore the ever evolving role and growth of machine learning at the company, from the evolution of their ML platform, to the unique team structure. We discuss Jack’s perspective on data governance, the broad use cases for ML, how they approached the decision to move to the cloud, and the impact of scale in the way they deal with data. Finally, we touch on where innovation comes from at ADP, and the challenge of getting the talent it needs to innovate as a large “legacy” company.
