Leveraging the Power of Data Analytics: Measure, adapt and optimise business transformation

Friday 2 February 2024 │ 08:45-10.00 GMT │ Chief Disruptor Breakfast Club

Big data analytics has revolutionised how organisations make decisions. By harnessing vast datasets, organisations can uncover insights, make more informed choices and gain competitive advantage. 

Data insight has always been at the heart of successful business transformation and big data analytics is increasingly being used by business leaders as a means to analyse, measure and optimise business transformation. Big data analytics should guide and inform all decisions made throughout the transformation journey. Access to real-time data insights helps organisations understand shifting customer behaviour and requirements quicker, whilst simultaneously helping them keep up with changing business needs and the rapidly evolving operating and technological landscape. 

Big data analytics also paves the way towards innovation, experimentation and adaptation, allowing organisations to identify what’s working in real-time, and to pivot their strategies rapidly. Join us at this Chief Disruptor Breakfast Club to discuss how to do just that.
