10:35 AM - 10:55 AM
Everytime when a person uses technology to complete a business process, data is produced. Data, in effect, is at the intersection of People, Process and Technology. This data can be an asset when properly managed, governed, curated and analyzed. It is easier said than done and when properly handled can impact the bottom-line in a positive way. We will discuss various ways to leverage data in an enterprise context.

Think Tank: Creating an enterprise-wide data-driven culture

11:00 AM - 11:20 AM

Overcoming the challenge of legacy cultures, resistance to change and disjointed processes in order to unlock new ways of working with data and analytics. Getting the business to understand what the data team does and embedding the importance of (and collective responsibility for) data across the organisation is essential if companies are to truly embrace and optimise advanced analytics capabilities. A top-down approach is often an essential part of this, so obtaining board level buy-in to secure investment in data initiatives is a key facet of this challenge. Equally, the question of whether the data team should be centralised or decentralised (i.e. integrated within different lines of business) is also a key tenet of the cultural challenge.

Think Tank: Establishing a modern data governance framework

2:35 PM - 2:55 PM

Data governance practices and disciplines have been inherent in a number of organisations for many years, but the evolving regulatory landscape (particularly with the onset of GDPR) has compelled organisations to scrutinise and optimise how they store, manage and process data and create a roadmap of activity. Organisations are seeking an overarching approach to data governance to manage the people, processes and technologies involved in data initiatives in a more modern way.
