It all starts with data: How can you make yours work for you?

Data are useful only if they can be used to support enterprise decisions and solve business problems. But in reality, a lot of the data are not fully utilised in organisations. With lots of noise and concerns over the quality of data, sifting through the data to extract valuable information has remained a major challenge. There is also an infinite number of ways in which the data can be combined, compared and analysed to extract useful patterns and business insights. So, how do major organisations use data and analytics to inform strategic and operational decisions? This closing keynote provides insights into the key considerations for large multinational enterprises to manage data and build analytics capability.
