It’s Not Entirely about Data – A Digital Transformation Case Study about Achieving Buy-in from Stakeholders

Digital transformation is one of those “easier said than done” initiatives. The COVID-19 pandemic drove home the “why,” but the “how,” “who,” and “what” of digital transformation still need to be carefully worked out. Join Jason Wang for this case study, where he will share the real-life example of Synergy Credit Union’s banking app migration project. In this session, you will learn:

  • How to recognize the impact on people, and achieve buy-in from stakeholders who may not speak the same language as you
  • How to define the scope and success metrics of “going digital”
  • How to position your organization for continued digitization success

Networking Break

Invitation-Only Virtual Roundtable : Is Your Analytics Strategy and Culture a Match Made in Heaven or a Match Made in Hell?


It’s a time to face the truth: most organizations trying to implement enterprise analytics and BI have or will fail. There is no shame in this: failure is part and parcel of the process. 


For any organization that depends on data, the universal goal is to become data-driven, united by those who manage the data and those who use it. Whilst the goal is the same for both, the means to achieve it can differ drastically. Failure to see the others’ core interests lies at the very heart of the conflict, and derails even the best-intentioned analytics and BI initiatives. 


If the strategy doesn’t match the needs of the business, users will chart their own course, data silos will emerge, and distinct cultures and tools will proliferate across the business. When individual departments go it alone, data leaders are forced into a reactive stance—and they spend more time tamping down innovation than encouraging it. 


Now more than ever, it’s imperative that those who manage and use analytics find common ground. The price of failure is simply too high.

What’s keeping you from aligning strategy and culture? What steps can data leaders take to ensure their data strategy leads their organizations to the promised land? And how can they avoid the descent into further chaos?

In this Digital Board Room, Pyramid Analytics’ presenter will explore with the delegates / attendees the key ways organizations can match strategy and culture, sharing experiences on how they’ve aligned people, processes, and technology to guide their organizations in the right direction.


Bill Balnave, VP of Global Solutions Engineering, Pyramid Analytics

 

 


1:50 - 2:20 pm ET

Keynote Presentation: Data/Analytics Are Not the Noble Cause

There are numerous research studies that point to data not being used, and in business, there’s an insatiable quest to develop more, so there is a disconnect.  As data stewards, there’s an opportunity to recognize that while data, analytics, KPIs, and governance, are framed in the service of the noble causes of our organizations, customers, and patients, not as the noble cause themselves; thus improving usability to solve even the most challenging problems.  

  • How to overcome the challenge many firms, IT departments, technologists, research departments, and Chief Data Officers face when leadership forgoes the opportunity to incorporate a sense of purpose and meaning into information, most often providing information that doesn’t measure the true cause.
  • A discussion of Steve’s journey of recognition and how he is reframing his efforts to change.
  • Examples from the healthcare industry that provide applicable takeaways for any industry or situation to help make the noble cause, truly that, the noble cause. 


Steve Stepp, VP of Analytics, Catholic Health Services


2:20 - 2:50 pm ET

Keynote Presentation: Don’t Put the AI Cart Before the Data Horse: Putting AI in Perspective

When it Comes to AI and ML Initiatives, Build Capabilities Progressively – and Don’t Leave Your Business Users Behind

  • Business users need data. Data lies at the heart of every decision. They need analytics to help them understand it. So, where does AI fit in?
  • Despite all the talk of AI and ML, there are very real hurdles to the adoption of advanced analytics technologies, especially at organizations with sizable data investments and tricky business challenges.
  • Simply put many organizations lack the data governance controls for many AI and ML projects to make it past the experimental stage, or the tools to give everyday users the ability to collaborate with more advanced users.
  • How do we attack the challenge and gradually integrate advanced analytics into traditional analytics workflow.

Bill Balnave, VP of Global Solutions Engineering, Pyramid Analytics

Breakout Presentation: Creating an Enterprise Data Fabric to Digitize City Furniture’s Business Model 

 

City Furniture is a Florida-based retailer that is on a mission to change the way people live—with beautiful home furnishings at incredible value. That mission needed a digital transformation—a data driven future. While the company has been experiencing rapid growth, it encountered challenges with slow and inefficient traditional data management technologies to transform their business model. Traditional ETL based data integration methods had high resource costs, were slow to implement, and were impeding important data initiatives for the company.

 

Join this session to learn how City Furniture was able to accelerate their digital transformation by implementing Data Virtualization. From self-service analytics, rapid data integration via Denodo APIs, supporting hybrid cloud, and more, Data Virtualization has been a key tool in supporting City Furniture’s objectives. The session will continue with an overview of Logical Data Fabric and how it can play a role in complex ecosystems, and demonstrate how City Furniture's success can be replicated at other companies.


Ryan Fattini, Director of Data Engineering, City Furniture - Brought to you by Denodo

Breakout Presentation: The Dashboard is Dead

For more than 20 years, dashboards served as a foundational element of business intelligence, helping leaders visualize and share valuable data across their organization.
Yet even after two decades of tremendous investment, analytics adoption rates have stagnated at just 30%. Today, only 10% of executives believe their company is analytics mature and more than 84% of frontline workers report poor analytics experiences and needing better insights technology. That’s because dashboards weren’t built to meet the needs of today’s always-on, always-changing world. Your business can’t afford to wait days or weeks for trained analysts to produce insights from stale data. You need personalized insights from your cloud data now.

In this session, you’ll learn why data leaders are increasingly turning away from analytics dashboards and discover:
• The hidden operation costs weighing down your data team
• Why dashboards can never truly deliver the timely, personalized insights your frontline workers need to drive value
• How search and AI are creating a new paradigm for analytics


Sudheesh Nair, CEO, ThoughtSpot

 

 


11:50 - 12:30 pm ET

  • Best practices for data cleaning and how to plan when and where specific data should be used.
  • Automating analytics to operate without a great deal of intervention.
  • How the full organization can be educated and involved to ensure a successful process.

Keynote Presentation: Finding the Way in the Dark, Leveraging AI to Mine Intensely Valuable Dark Conversation Data
Gartner defines dark data as the information assets organizations collect, process and store during regular business activities, but generally fail to use for other purposes (for example, analytics, business relationships and direct monetizing). Similar to dark matter in physics, dark data often comprises most organizations’ universe of information assets. Join CallMiner’s VP of Artificial Intelligence Rick Britt as he takes you through overview of the AI powered technologies and best practices to expose and leverage all forms of customer interaction data insights to drive a broad range of business performance improvement objectives.

In this session you will learn:

Breakout Presentation: The Strategic Importance of Accelerating Your BI

  • The demand for fast, accurate Business Intelligence and analytics within organisations is becoming super-charged. Business stakeholders want to ask more questions of the data and get answers and insights more quickly.
  • This has been a trend that has been growing over recent years and has been re-enforced by the demands of the pandemic. Organisations need to find a way to ‘democratise’ their data to accelerate their BI.
  • We will discuss the demand for BI acceleration using case studies and examples to demonstrate how it can be done.

Case Study: Technical Problems? Or Personal Excuses?


"The system doesn't support that."

"It's not possible."

"That's just the way it is."


Do these sound familiar? It's 2021 and we have more computing power available to us in the enterprise than we could ever possibly need; we can send a helicopter to Mars and we can run facial substitution algorithms on devices in our hands. There are no longer technical limitations to... well anything really. Anybody who tells you that something can't be done generally isn't describing a problem, they ARE the problem. In this session Dr. Luke Dicken will present some examples of the kinds of situations where plausible-sounding technical challenges can be shown to trace to People Problems, and the ways that recognizing this can allow you to think differently and discover strategies to get the technical advantage every company craves.
