Learn, Unlearn, Relearn : Data and Analytics Everywhere

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, July 12 – 13, 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.

The global pandemic has affected businesses in many ways. The effects, however, were not necessarily all negative. 2021 should be a year of opportunities for delivering new business outcomes, leveraging numerous insights and findings, as well as for recovery. As evidenced by the government’s effort to launch Digital Agency, data and analytics will definitely play a key role in the success.
