8:30 am - 8:35 am Chairperson's Opening Remarks


Data and Analytics Executives have seen the potential for Artificial Intelligence but have struggled to make it a valuable opportunity for the Enterprise. The largest inhibitor to applications of AI is the shortage of intellectuals with the technical skills to implement AI and machine learning, and then retain them long enough to drive effective changes and outcomes. Going forward, it is critical to develop the necessary skills and identify the best candidates to promote as potential AI leaders. In this session hear best practices and use cases for advancing skills for artificial intelligence.

Case Study

10:45 am - 11:20 am Strategies for Optimizing Media Performance Amid Increasing CMO Demands

Greg Green Ph.D. - Chief Data and Analytics Officer Harland Clarke Holdings
The customer journey is a critical framework to understand, measure and improve business KPIs. Nevertheless, there is a missing component to that framework that can be uniquely addressed within a measurement portfolio that captures the motivators of consumer actions and may be built on such metrics as sales lift, store traffic or visits, basket size and redemption. Key takeaways of this session include: overcome the disparate data and metric challenge of multi-channel media optimization; focus on brand/consumer activation opportunity rather than media/brand spend; provide “analytics transparency” to reduce the feeling of the “fox guarding the hen house” and mystery of black box machine learning; find a new level of control on the dials to optimize with media, data and analytics.

Practitioner-Led Roundtable Discussions

11:20 am - 11:55 am Articulating the Value Proposition for Enterprise-wide Investment in Advanced Analytics

Dana Rollison - Chief Data Officer Moffitt Cancer Center
The unique characteristics of healthcare data make them particularly challenging to aggregate and analyze, including restrictions on protected health information, the unstructured and unstandardized nature of electronic medical record data, and the high performance computing and specialized knowledge required to process emerging genomic data. Upfront investments in technology infrastructure and personnel are considerable, while longer-term returns on investment are difficult to quantify. During this interactive session, participants will discuss strategies for articulating the value proposition of advanced analytics aimed at driving innovation across the organization.
