Agenda

8:30am - 9:00am: Registrations

9:00am - 9:45am: Opening Presentation: Identifying & exploiting the keys to digital transformation
MapR, Derek Judge, Senior Director, APAC

Leading companies are integrating operations and analytics to make real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, and mitigate risks. There are many aspects to digital transformation, but the timely delivery of actionable data is both a key enabler and an obstacle. We will explore how companies from TransUnion to Uber use event-driven processing to transform their businesses.

9:45am - 10:15am:
The Big Data Pathway
CBIG Consulting, Gerard Skybey, Partner, SEA
NTT DATA Business Solutions, Heng Puay-Hiong, Managing Director, Singapore

Never before have we understood so much about what’s on people’s minds, as they share their lives on digital channels. Added to that is the explosion of data generated by IoT devices, plant equipment and other machinery 24/7. The result is an ever-increasing volume of communications from both the natural and made-made worlds in video, audio, text and data streams.

Having a ‘big data’ strategy to tap into this wave of digital communication is essential if you want to create and exploit new opportunities. But what is the right starting point, and what steps should you take? What capabilities are required?

In this presentation, you’ll discover where to start, and how to put in place an effective big data strategy.
