CDOs and CIOs are taking charge of digital transformation to keep companies competitive. However, what do we mean by digital transformation? At its core, any digital transformation requires clean and consistent data, reconciled across systems and channels. An enterprise-wide data management foundation that ensures real-time access to reliable data of all types at scale and is non-negotiable. The democratization of data across all groups and divisions is a must to provide teams with a 360-degree view of customers, products, organizations and more. However, it’s not just about analytics. It’s about the next generation of operational data-driven applications that allow frontline business users to gain relevant insights and intelligent recommended actions to achieve business objectives. This session explores how some of the largest companies in the world are transforming themselves using the same modern data management technology employed by Internet giants such as Amazon, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google.
