Transforming Data
into Insights Series

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018. 8:00 a.m - 10:30 a.m.
Vantage Venues – 150 King St. West, 27th Floor

This session is intended to help any size organization navigate the challenges around the volume, variety, and velocity at which they are collecting valuable information today.

Turn over any hot business trend or solution and you will find….data. Artificial Intelligence (AI). Machine Learning (ML). Deep Learning (DL). Digital Transformation. Customer Experience (CX). Internet of Things (IOT). Data-Driven Decision Making (that one even has data in the name!). The list goes on.

Why then do organizations still struggle to make the case for investment in data’s ongoing care and feeding? 

In this session we will discuss how to create a compelling – and sustainable - case for investment in your data from governance to infrastructure. Learn how to present data differently: in terms executives and key decision makers can’t resist. Further, hear firsthand from an organization that successfully transformed their team’s perception of data as a liability to an asset. Join us and discover a roadmap to help navigate your journey to data driven decision making.
