Gartner Data & Analytics Summit

8 – 9 June 2021 | APAC | Virtual

Develop a resilient data and analytics strategy for an AI-ready, data-centric organization

Faced with a constantly evolving business landscape and unprecedented levels of uncertainty, it’s more vital than ever that data and analytics leaders such as the chief data officer and chief analytics officer (CDO and CAO) forge new paths to enable a data-and-analytics-centric culture within their organizations.

Data and analytics leaders must be able to tie data and analytics strategy to business outcomes and promote the adoption of technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), while creating a resilient culture that accelerates change, and where data literacy, digital trust, governance and data-driven critical thinking are pervasive. 

The virtual Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, 8 – 9 June 2021, offers content for every member of your data and analytics team — from technical to senior-level strategy. Join data and analytics leaders to gain the skills to build and execute a world-class strategy.
