Virtual Event: Managing Data Overload

Tackling Data Overload: Making sense of complex multi-source data

Wednesday, April 7, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Faced with a constantly evolving data landscape and unprecedented levels of uncertainty and data itself, it’s more vital than ever that data and analytics leaders forge new paths to enable a data-and-analytics-centric culture within their organizations.   

Data and analytics leaders must be able to tie data and analytics strategy to tangible outcomes and promote the adoption of technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), while creating a resilient culture that accelerates change, and where data literacy, digital trust, governance, and data-driven critical thinking are pervasive in the face of overwhelming and unprecedented levels of data.   

The Managing Data Overload virtual event explores how public sector institutions are shifting from defensive to offensive data management strategies, to improve operational efficiency and cost reduction enhancing opportunities. We’ll be putting the questions to the experts on data and deep-diving into the data management capabilities needed to deliver on improved outcomes.
