The data-driven organization and digital transformation are key topics in the IT industry and in the board rooms. Sometimes these concepts are over-simplified, as if a simple action is sufficient to transform an organization into a data-driven one. Nothing is further from the truth. Although many organizations have their own definition of what they mean with the two concepts, they all do agree on that both concepts are essential and that data must play a greater role in business operations. Data must be used more intensively within an organization, for example by means of data science, the yield from the current investment in data can be increased, data must be used more widely in numerous business areas, and AI techniques must be deployed to discover new business insights.
Indirectly, the sixth edition of the DW&BI Summit is focused on this increasing need for data-driven organizations and their digital transformation. Organizational, technical, and architectural aspects are explained. Topics include dealing with the resistance to technological innovations, what database technology will look like in five years’ time, the importance of storytelling, and the design of future-proof data architectures.
The conference offers practical guidelines and do’s and don’ts to help you with these current and impending issues. You will meet well-known speakers and thought leaders from the Netherlands and abroad, including Kent Graziano, Keith McCormick, Lawrence Corr, Nigel Turner, Rick van der Lans, Lex Pierik, Rutger Rienks and prof. Martin Kersten. Once again, we managed to set up a very strong line-up with internationally acclaimed speakers, ready to share their knowledge and experience with you.
Some topics that will be discussed these days:
