Building a Smarter Organization through Digital Transformation & AI

17th of October - The St. Regis Doha, Westbay  | Doha, Qatar


Why attend

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become mainstream and is fueling more and more aspects of businesses and day-to-day life. Beyond the hype, the question is how data-driven innovation can be brought to life and put in action to resolve real business problems. What steps are needed to move AI out of the lab and into business operations to realize the desired outcomes?

The challenge resides in complex IT landscapes, departmental silos, and the ability to deploy analytics where needed. An analytics platform supports and accelerates the entire Analytics Lifecycle from Data to Discovery and Deployment. To succeed with AI, organizations must be able to orchestrate and govern their analytics ecosystem through the entire Analytics Lifecycle.

Come learn how to enable Business, IT and data scientists to collaborate in transforming data into actionable insight and business value, with the right balance between choice and control.

We look forward to seeing you on the 17th of October at the St. Regis, Westbay, Doha, Qatar
