Keynote Presentation: Accelerate Your Journey to AI

  • Changing customer expectations, new competitors and increasing regulatory pressure are forcing organizations to accelerate their business and digital transformation journey. This transformational journey involves strategy, people, process, culture and of course, data.
  • Every aspect of business, every touch point generates data. Data has the potential to change the trajectory by adding new insights, new relationships between entities & processes and help drive change.
  • Yet it requires Trusted & Business-Ready data. Data that is easy to find, data that is clean, curated, without duplicates, with privacy & governance rules applied and ready to be used by analysts, data scientists to drive decisions at scale. In this state, you will be able to know your data, trust your data so you can use your data.
