UAE-based organizations are driving various digital initiatives to modernize their functions, improve operational efficiency, set business priorities, and implement advanced business models at lower operational costs, with a strict focus on ensuring security and modernizing their IT infrastructure. This has spurred demand for improved efficiency, operational performance, and agility. The UAE’s various digital transformation (DX) strategies and increasing use of technologies such as business intelligence (BI), artificial Intelligence (AI), analytics, cloud, and IoT have expanded the overall digital footprint of organizations, resulting in the exponential growth of data to fulfill its primary objective of driving innovation to enable the development of better products and services.

With increasing data volumes, organizations are leveraging big data analytics and business intelligence solutions to extract information gold out of raw data. Organizations that are unable to analyze data faster and in real time face delayed decision-making issues that negatively impact their operational efficiency and employee productivity.

Various lines of businesses are looking for solutions that empower them to perform data analysis at a faster rate, support self-service analytics, and most importantly, lead to less reliance on IT and technical teams. In the future, there will be a shift towards autonomous systems in the market. As organizations are becoming more data-centric due to the continuous expansion of digital technologies, such autonomous systems will have a significant impact in the area of data management and analytics.

This presentation will explore some emerging approaches to the use of data from the worlds of HR, finance, and operations within manufacturing and retail organizations across the UAE. It will also examine the challenges these lines of business are encountering as part of this journey and provide insights into how autonomous solutions can help organizations realize their goals of becoming a modern, streamlined, secure enterprise of the future.
