Data first. Revolution second.
Discover the key to transforming your entire business with data.

Digital transformation is more than just a buzzword, it’s a must-do. Yet most initiatives will fail due to a lack of data literacy, limited access to data, and poor analytics strategies. This is your chance to hear from leaders who are revolutionising with data instead of failing.

How do you become a leader in this revolution?
Find out at the Qlik Data Revolution Tour.

Coming to London on 10th October, this exclusive one-day event reveals the leaders in the Data Revolution will be those who can harness the power of their data assets to seek and uncover transformational insights and enrich every decision across all aspects of their operations.

Join us on the Data Revolution Tour and hear from:

  • Industry thought-leaders, who will share where business intelligence is heading and how to be successful in a data driven world. They will also share pragmatic steps you can take to deliver a data literate organisation, enabled to leverage the power of business intelligence.
  • Qlik Experts, who will dive into Qlik’s unique approach to the 3rd generation of BI, leveraging augmented intelligence to enhance data literacy and enrich every decision across all aspects of your organisation.
