With the largest tech companies investing billions on data infrastructure and data-driven start-ups innovating faster than many established businesses, sound decision making is paramount. Leaders can no longer rely solely on reporting tools, analytics platforms and a few skilled experts to determine the fate of the business. Today’s thriving businesses are implementing integrated operations that freely exchange critical data in real time across the entire organization. This requires the adoption of a data driven company-wide culture. A culture where everyone is asking the question - “What is the business problem we want data to solve?”

This educational panel discussion will address the exponential impact of building a data driven organization for business survival with data analytics at the forefront.
