Starting Data Conversations &
Leveraging Data for Competitive Advantage

The CDO Summit is the premier event for
digital & data leaders:

March 28, 2018 | London, UNITED KINGDOM
April 25, 2018  | NYC, UNITED STATES
June 27, 2018  | San Francisco, UNITED STATES

The UK CDO Summit on 28 March will dive deep into data with a keynote from Jacqueline Harrison, Information Architect at NFU Mutual on “Starting Data Conversations

In this session, Jacqueline will share recent experiences in developing approaches to address the ‘people’ and ‘metadata’ aspects of building a corporate data management capability.

We talk often about data management frameworks, the disciplines involved, the roles we need to create and the processes we need to build. We hear less about how we take people on the journey with us and what information base we need to support people in their “data conversations”.

This session will outline:
  • Why “data conversations” are important
  • What hinders those conversations?
  • How to create an approach to grow people confidence and capability
  • An approach to building an information base to support our data conversations

Following Jacqueline’s keynote will be the Data Panel speaking on “Leveraging Data for Competitive Advantage“.

This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities organizations face when leveraging their data for competitive advantage. While developments in AI, DL, ML, and cognitive systems are making the headlines, they are not required, and the panelists will discuss these and simpler ways of establishing business-driven global knowledge and social collaboration strategies that will enable the organization to deliver real-time, actionable insights to the right people at the right time.
