Building a Data-First Company Culture

2:40 pm - 3:25 pm The Data Leadership Paradox The Data Leader’s remit can seem an impossible one – on one hand having to be a business leader yet manage complex technology, enable an organisation to unlock and use the value of data yet control yet govern the data to ensure it is secure and used ethically. Join this workshop to explore the challenges of the modern Data Leader and the strategies required to succeed on all sides of the role without compromising the strategic and business goals with the technology and operational ones.
During this workshop we will discuss:
  • Balancing control with distribution of data and analytics 
  • Evaluating data value not data size 
  • Creating a data movement within the organisation – shifting from reporting to action-orientation 
  • Moving to right-context data, not reactive or real-time

Building a Data-First Company Culture

3:25 pm - 4:10 pm Creative Boardroom: Unleashing the full potential of in-house analytics: Case studies in imagination
Getting value from your data assets requires thinking about things differently. In this talk we take as an example a very simple transactional log and show, using actual case studies, how you can use it a wide range of ways to get unexpected value.
