The Dawn of Data: Departmental Alignment for the Win

Creating a culture of data that puts the customer first starts with departments joining forces. Determining who owns and defines what, and ultimately how to overcome these challenges is an initiative in and of itself. In this session, learn how to not only survive your single view of the customer initiative but also excel by creating an everlasting cross-departmental relationship with data as the binding force.

Solving the Monetization and Trust Paradox

In a world of big data and increasing sources of information, data scientists have access to very personal information about their customers. This information allows businesses to achieve a better view of the customer, make more personalized recommendations, and enhance the overall experience with their services. While the benefits of this information have a tremendous impact on business capabilities, it poses ethical questions. How do we know when we’ve crossed the line of privacy for the customers? To what extent can this degree of information really be justified? How do we interpret the law when the landscape of technology and data sources is always evolving?

Afternoon Networking Break

Language Immersion Workshop: The Art of Analytics Storytelling

True value for the business is created when they can make effective decisions that are based on a strong understanding of the facts. The term data science itself holds different definitions depending on who you ask, so when it comes to explaining the various components of data science that impact the business, there needs to be a consensus on the meaning and how it can be translated to the business. Learn how to convey data science with a clear purpose for the business.
