Data Strategies for Digital Transformation Summit 2019
In this summit, we'll be exploring how area CIOs, Innovation & Digital Executives are implementing key strategies to drive both immediate growth, digital transformation and scale.
- Pillar One: Evolving to the The Data Driven Enterprise. Retool both your Data Tech Stack and your culture of data usage to make better decisions and prepare for the future.
- Pillar Two: Analytics 3.0. Tom Davenport described Analytics 3.0 as the integration of predictive analytics into the product offering. With the integration of Predictive Analytics, next generation A-I and cognitive computing, and RPA, leading edge executives are leading their companies into growth through both better decision making and an integration of predictive analytics into the product and service offering!
- Pillar Three: Data Protection, Data Privacy and Security. All effective data strategies must include effective data protection, data privacy and security strategies to protect both IP and customer privacy per increasingly demanding regulatory requirements.
- Data Driven Business Models - We’ll explore how proactive executives have successfully opened new lines of business and drove real growth by monetizing data as an asset.

Session: A Single Global Privacy Framework for Risk Reduction & Value Creation
With enterprises collecting more data than ever before, even data that doesn’t appear to be sensitive at face value could be combined with other pieces of data and lead to privacy concerns. This can create massive business issues in regards to loss of trust, brand damage as well as penalties associated to privacy regulations. In this session, we will explore how organizations can apply a framework that will address privacy concerns on a global scale now, while also being flexible in order to evolve with the continuous addition of new privacy regulations impacting your business.
