Gartner Data & Analytics Summit

May 4 – 6, 2021 | Americas | 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, May 4 – 6, 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.

    Data and Analytics Everywhere

    Data and analytics are no longer peripheral to the business. They are even more important in times of disruption and uncertainty. They are core to how organizations serve and delight their customers, optimize business processes and reduce risk, digitally accelerate, and supply the foundation for new transformational business models and revenue streams.

    Leadership, Skills, Culture and Value Management

    Uncertainty and disruption mean data and analytics leaders must build and lead resilient and adaptive organizations to find opportunity in the chaos. Data and analytics strategy must be linked to the business in order to deliver value.

    Composable Data and Analytics

    Dramatic changes in business imperatives mean that organizations must be nimbler in their response than ever before. The data and analytics platform of the future will leverage data and analytics ecosystems and components to compose and recompose intelligent, AI-infused applications.

    Accelerating AI and Machine Learning

    Digital business and the Internet of Things (IoT) have fueled an exponential growth in data. The speed at which businesses must reinvent and shift has fueled the need to accelerate the use and operationalization of AI and machine learning (ML) across the organization for maximum business impact.

    Augmented Data Management

    Success with data and analytics will depend on building an agile foundation of trust, accountability, governance and security that respects privacy and promotes digital ethics. It also must be agile enough to respond to constant business and technology change.

    Privacy and Ethics

    The more data and analytics are central to the business, the more data we collect and connect, the higher the risk of violating customer privacy and using data and AI/ML unethically. Leaders must proactively manage data privacy, security and ethical use of data and analytics. It’s not only the right thing to do and increasing a regulatory requirement, it is essential to trust and credibility.
