What you'll learn

  • Explore the people, processes, and technologies that are driving information transformation around the world


Asia leads the world in next-generation banking, smart factories, smart cities, the IoT, and digital transformation. However, the insights needed to drive those initiatives are often buried under vast amounts of data—inaccessible, inaccurate, and incomplete to be of value to information workers who must make critical decisions every day.

Organizations are placing immense pressure on their chief data officers and analytics teams to modernize their data-related infrastructure and practices. Hear from a panel of four industry leaders who will share their views on the people, processes, and technologies that are driving information transformation around the world, including machine learning, big data, the cloud, and distributed computing.

This session is sponsored by Paxata.
