Welcome and Introduction

Business Keynote: Living in, Working with and Loving Data
Data is everywhere. More and more things generate data: the things we touch, the things we watch, the cars we drive. In the world of business, the organisations we work for are increasingly defined and differentiated by their ability to compete on data. However, are they ready?  Are we ready? This keynote looks at how we understand our level of readiness and considers two factors that seriously impact our ability to live and work in a world of data possibilities: data literacy and analytic culture.  Get these right and we don’t just win with data, we might even learn to love it too.

Product Keynote: Making Data-Driven Possibilities Possible

This keynote will showcase Qlik’s latest product innovations and demonstrate how Qlik’s visual analytics platform uniquely enables organisations to see the whole story that lives within their data, address a broad range of analytic use cases, all while empowering the business but also ensuring strength and trust for IT.

Customer Best Practices Track - Session 2: Navigating the shift from Data to Value through Analytical narratives
The new era of digital technology is driving profound changes in our daily lives and the way we conduct business. An end-to-end digital journey can drive value creation by uniting the offline to online world- seamlessly and meaningfully and deliver superior customer delight. While acquiring data is easier than ever, deriving meaning from data and creating business value is a challenge. An analytical narrative helps give meaning to this data. We are inspired by narratives, learn by example. Analytical narratives humanizes the “last mile” of data’s journey in the digital age.
