Event description

Description

As data-driven strategies take hold, big data and analytics have rocketed to the top of the corporate agenda. These two areas are quickly becoming a critical point of competitive difference. The question remains; exactly how ready are our business leaders for this transformation?

Our experience reveals that most companies are too slow to adapt or unsure on how best to proceed. Leaders are understandably cautious of making substantial investments in big data and advanced analytics, as they’re convinced that their organisations simply are not ready.

This revolution of data is hitting every industry, and every organisation now has the power to harness large amounts of information that can help inform strategic decisions. Digital natives are comfortable with technology and the digital world, however do they know how to read, work and argue with data?

You are invited to join our panel of leading industry experts as they discuss and explore the synergy between data and strategy, whilst highlighting the importance of developing strategies to become a data-driven organisation.
