Welcome and Opening Remarks

Analytics in the Era of AI:
Donald Farmer, Principal - TreeHive Strategy »

The practice of business analytics has come a long way from early reporting and digital dashboard tools. Today we’re entering a new phase, with intelligent and predictive capabilities within reach of every business. We need to be ready for this, but we should not overreact either.

Driving Data Literacy within the Enterprise:
Martha Bennett, Principal Analyst - Forrester »

With the rapid pace of tech innovation, there’s been an accelerated explosion of data in our personal and professional lives. With automation, robotics and artificial intelligence – a fourth industrial revolution is looming. And data will be its universal language…but who is able to speak or read it?

Data is key to unlocking new insights, ideas and possibilities. But experts estimate that only one-third of us can confidently understand, analyse and argue with data. This keynote will address why Data Literacy must be regarded as a critical consideration for creating a data-driven culture and arm attendees with pragmatic advice and recommendations.
