Here’s the thing. To really do any of these things, you need an enterprise data strategy. How on earth will you serve up all of that data at the right time? To the right people (and only the right people)? How will you blend, transform, and augment individual sets of data to answer these questions?
Of course, we have technology to help with that; however, the majority of the solution lies in the people, culture, and processes. What are best practices for empowering the workforce via data? How have other companies established policies that comply with regulations and are yet agile?
The possibilities are endless. Prioritizing possible solutions and programs requires a deep understanding of your business’s goals, and then a translation into an outcome-driven data strategy. Business outcomes, not data or IT outcomes. (Hint: Speed is not an outcome.)
Chief Data Officer and Chief Analytics Officer curated sessions
SAPPHIRENOW will have expert panels to get you started answering these questions. Check out this brochure that outlines all of the key activities for you. There are a few select spots remaining on the CDO + CAO Show floor tour. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Your guides along this journey include people who do this work every day—they live this life.
