Description

Day 1: Lessons Learned - the good, the bad and the ugly of your data transformation journey

It seems to be the fashion nowadays - data transformation of some kind. To quote a recent HBR article, “There’s something different about technological change that causes senior executives in large, established firms to act differently than they might otherwise”. At this full-day data festival, you will hear from business leaders and data leaders in businesses that have the battle scars, and the medals, of data transformation in the real world. You should expect to go away with a good understanding of the stumbling blocks, and some simple steps to take to avoid them.
