Walter Paczkowski Shares His Perspectives on Using Advanced Analytics to Improve Prices

In this informative conversation, Walter Paczkowski, Chief Data Scientist at Data Analytics Corp., discusses his new book on advanced pricing analytics and shares his perspectives on various challenges and opportunities he's identified through his work.
