IDC Data and Intelligence Summit Developing Digital Agility and Resilience Through Enterprise Intelligence

In-Person Event | Sintra | June 7 - June 9, 2022


We are delighted to announce IDC’s European Data & Intelligence Summit. To be held in Portugal on 7-9th June 2022, this will build on the success of our digital edition in 2021 with a physical event to bring together data, AI and analytics leaders to share experiences, learn new techniques and upgrade their strategies to exploit their data assets and transform their companies towards data driven, learning organizations.

As we head towards a Digital First world, technology has become the primary instrument for success and survival of European organizations. However, the future remains uncertain and fluid, with winds of change continuing to blow over the European business environment. Business and technology leaders need to collaborate to build resiliency as they navigate towards the future enterprise.

What's become clear in the last year is that intelligence – data driven processes leveraging machine learning with rising degrees of autonomy – is playing a leading role in an organization's transformation to a resilient digital business that's sufficiently agile to navigate the choppy waters of today and tomorrow. But there are other equally important considerations in building a truly digital business: of organization, leadership and the future of work. The speed at which European organisations get ROI from their intelligent technology investments is becoming an increasingly important success factor. Agile methods and cloud technologies are now as essential in the domain of enterprise intelligence as they are in business and technology operations. But what approaches and practices will maximise the benefits and successful outcomes?
