Due to the current global situation, IDC have taken the decision to make the Data and Intelligence Summit that is taking place on 7th June a virtual event. This decision was taken as the safety of our sponsors, delegates and staff is paramount, and our communities health should be placed above all else. 


The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty and business volatility and changed the way companies operate permanently. 

Organizations know that they need to accelerate their digital transformation already under way if they are to survive and thrive in the coming years. They need to widen data-driven decision making across the organization.

This event aims to assist data and business intelligence leaders to navigate the new requirements, through expert presentations and peer discussions, on the new normal and steering the right response of the data organization to drive their business strategy. 

How to enable organizations to make better, faster data-driven decisions? How to enable them driving better outcomes for customers, employees, partners and suppliers, when the reality is so uncompromising? The answers are partly about investment in platforms and tools, of course – but it is also about culture: driving projects and programs in more agile, collaborative ways; building new skills and driving change; and reappraising governance. 

Decision automation and augmentation – through use of AI, ML, advanced analytics and, of course, a plentiful supply of good quality data – are crucial enablers for any enterprise looking to accelerate their recovery and reignite growth. European organizations’ embrace of cloud and increasing use of external data sources for market signals (including data from mobile and social networks and IoT devices) - mean that source data has never been more challenging to locate, manage and govern.

Event Highlights
