The journey to AI begins with data, and there’s no shortage of it. In fact, anyone can collect it; the goal now is to make intelligent use of it. To do this at enterprise-scale means building a new reality for your organization. Dinesh Nirmal shares a strategic framework for streamlining your data assets, a framework that takes into account the current state of your existing data structures, the new technologies driving enterprise, the complexities of business processes, and at the foundation, the elements required in an AI-fluent data platform.

This keynote is sponsored by IBM.
