Getting the Wheels Turning: Establishing the Foundation and Essentials for a Successful Data-Centered Company

28th September 2022, 08:30 – 10:00 EET

The fact that data and analytics are key elements in optimizing organizations’ performances is nothing new. Every company is focusing on developing their data culture and becoming more data-driven in order to excel in a competitive business environment. Although, amongst all the buzzwords and trends flying around, it is easy to lose sight of the very foundation of your strategy. To become truly data-driven, companies must establish a culture of change, create modern governance processes that communicate across departments, and get everyone on board on the road to a modern data-driven organization.

During this 90-Minutes Analytics Insight, we will discuss how companies can get the data and analytics wheel rolling by creating successful processes and making data second nature for all employees. In the end our speakers will meet in a discussion to reflect on each other’s journeys, give their best tips on how to implement the lessons learned, as well as discuss future trends and best practices in developing your data strategy further.

Without people, there would be no action. But more often than not, people are the obstacle that prevents action from happening. Many companies have a clear vision of the actions needed in order to become a data-driven company, but the biggest challenge lays within the culture of the organization.

But who says you cannot teach an old dog new tricks?

In this session our keynote speaker will explain how you can create and implement a strong data culture. We will go through how you can help your organization get on board the journey and put your company on the map as a modern data-centered organization, utilizing the true value that data has to offer for the whole business.

  • What are the next steps for the data fluent organization?
