Building systems that collect, manage and convert raw data into a story

"Data Engineers work in a variety of settings to build systems that collect, manage and convert raw data into a story," says Capgemini Data Engineer, Divya Khemlani. "So at the end of the day, we need to make the right decision in the right way and it needs to tell a story to whoever that's receiving the end result."

"Data Engineers are here to turn raw data into gold," explains Capgemini Lead Enterprise Data Architect, Isabelle Tachet. "At the end they want to use it because they know that behind the data they have some value."
