Place: • Sentralen • Oslo  


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 siloes, and the ability to deploy analytics where needed.

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

Welcome to an exclusive executive roundtable, where you can gain insights to best practices in the age of analytics.

  • Join thought leaders talking about AI, governance, ethics, cloud and the need for trusted data.
  • Learn from experiences made at Royal Bank of Scotland. They are three years down the line with their vision of creating one platform to meet the need of the organization. Hear how they implemented their multi-tenancy platform, which is internally known as Genie, now serving more than 10.000 users. What was discovered along their journey, which steps did they take to move their idea “out of your lab” and into business operations. How did it impact their organizational culture and how were they able to get IT and business ready to harvest the value of analytics?
  • Understand how to orchestrate an innovation-first analytics ecosystem and promote collaboration of your talents across business, IT and technical roles.

Successful execution of an analytics, and thereby AI strategy, needs the right balance of choice and control.


Creativity and innovation flourish in open spaces. You need flexibility and freedom to attract the best analytical talent, use a wide variety of techniques and develop processes that work best. You need the flexibility to use multiple programming languages and analyze any data in any environment and to keep up with accelerating demands.


Analytics chaos can creep up. Once you lose control of your data, you lose trust in the system and its outputs. Transparency, governance and security become essential for maintaining trust in models and analytical results. Becoming even more critical as you scale development, monitoring and refinement of analytics applications and their associated processes.

At the intersection of data, software, and ingenuity, the future is being redefined. After all, when curiosity meets capability, progress is inevitable.
