What you'll learn

  • Explore GDPR and the impact it makes on global technology companies today
  • Learn how to better design intelligent products powered by data


Data-driven companies making intelligent products must design for security and privacy to be competitive globally. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), implemented May 2018, is the benchmark that global data privacy will be measured against.

Amanda Casari outlines the basic tenets of personal data and details the high-level changes that GDPR-compliant businesses face. She then translates the current and near-future impact to teams designing products driven by machine learning and artificial intelligence and shares use cases of how SAP Concur is designing to meet this challenge while still delivering services to its end users that are driven by advanced algorithms.
