Harnessing Disruption in the 4th Industrial Revolution

We’ll be discussing the ever increasing rate of change and disruption in business nowadays and how data and the analysis of it underpins this.

Businesses need to embrace and harness this "new normal" to create new revenue streams and opportunities which means constructing the building blocks of this – effectively storing data; becoming data driven with BI; expanding the types of data stored (internal, external; structured, unstructured), expanding into analytics, increasing the range of people using that data.

Join us to hear from clients taking advantage of this and hear from industry thought leaders.
