Overview

IDC and AWS are hosting an executive dinner for senior business and technology leaders to explore how organisations can take practical steps in transforming into data-driven enterprises.

The lure of “becoming data driven” is strong across industry - and there are very good reasons for this. IDC research shows, for example, that organisations that show strong levels of Enterprise Intelligence deliver outsized business results, even in volatile uncertain environments. Over the past two years, organisations with top-quartile performance on IDC’s Enterprise Intelligence Index are 2.7X more likely to report significant revenue growth, and 3.6X more likely to report significantly improved time to market for new products, services, and operational improvements.

But becoming data driven is difficult. And in turns out that implementing the required technology is, for many, the easiest part. There are cultural, as well as organisational and technical challenges to overcome.

On December 7th join an IDC Executive Dinner, co-hosted with AWS, to discuss how organisations can take practical steps. We will discuss: 

 

• What kinds of business results are achievable with data-driven decisions?

• Why do cultural, organisational and process barriers hold organisations back, and how can we overcome them?

• What are the best ways to identify and promote use cases for investment?
