The  Future of Data
Seizing Potential, Profit & Purpose

The data-driven era is happening now. Enterprise leaders who learn to quickly capture and apply data at scale effectively will be more productive and beat the competition. Whether it’s upgrading old infrastructure to cloud-based or hybrid models, using software and analytics for efficiency among lines of business, or adopting artificial intelligence and automation to improve processes, we’ll take a look at how companies are utilizing technology to communicate more efficiently, capture value from customers and monetize vast amounts of data.

Leaders must also consider complications; as well as opportunities.
With so many different types of cloud services what are the challenges to adoption and implementation? We’ll examine privacy, security and regulation roadblocks. Join Bloomberg at this exclusive dinner briefing as we identify how data is becoming the world’s most valuable asset making innovation possible and transforming the way we make decisions for the future.

The Business of Data: Turning Analysis into Action

Emerging data collection technologies have the power to transform companies and our personal lives. From IoT to augmented reality and artificial intelligence, cloud-based systems will bring automation to almost every industry. Health care, Financial Services transport and media — no sector will be left unturned.

By understanding specific use cases, one can only start to comprehend the value this technology can truly create. What’s not being grasped yet is how the data is being utilized after it’s captured to create true business and economic value. Senior leaders will discuss how data is transforming the enterprise.

How are executives developing data collection methods for new, innovative technology? What are the emerging use cases? Is there data that is not being used to its full extent? What are the next steps for leaders to leverage data effectively and deliver valuable insights in an environment that is shareable?
