IDC Data and Intelligence Summit Leading Data Driven Transformation

DIGITAL Event | Lisbon | June 8 - June 9, 2020


Digital Transformation is not a new term; but as maturity builds, organizations are having to cope with envisioning what their organization will look like in 10 years time, and the practicalities of devising and implementing a strategy to get there. What's clear is that intelligence – data driven processes with rising degrees of autonomy – will play a leading role in the Future Enterprise. But there are other equally important considerations in building a truly digital business, of organization, leadership and the future of work.

This Summit has been designed as an information-sharing forum and an intimate networking platform for a selected group of 50 to 60 Chief Data Officers and Data Strategy Leaders from the top 500 companies and largest enterprises across Europe.  The exclusivity, visionary and high impact keynote speakers, and personable format of the event allows for the most engaging of conversations and in-depth discussions to take place in a stunning five-star environment. Every delegate will leave the summit enriched — whether it be with new lead projects for partners, or innovative and forward-looking solutions.
