4:30 PM Evolving From a Data-Driven to an Insight-Driven Enterprise

Enterprises now have more availability, access and volumes of data that they are using to drive the business, but the insights they are collecting has yet to be adopted by the business users. The lack of trust and understanding by the business users holds the enterprise back from a truly insight-driven competitive advantage. In this session, we will discuss how leading data analytics executives drive their business with insights. 

Join this session to discuss strategies to:
  • Create insight teams in each department to align business with technology
  • Act as a change agent in the modern tech landscape
  • Strategically invest in insights capabilities that promote business goals
  • Implement insights from all sources in software to drive action
