Data-driven Transformation: Hype or Holy Grail?

From technology vendor communities to high-paid consultants, everyone is talking about adopting data-driven strategies. Conventional businesses can learn a great deal from data-driven businesses, especially on how to increase their competitiveness in an information-rich world and transforming valuable information into monetisable assets. 

Digital transformation is rapidly becoming the holy grail of most organisations as it offers an easy and effective way to achieve greater efficiency, operational reliability and reduced costs. 

  • What does being data-driven really mean and how does it apply to real companies with real problems and constraints?
  • How can conventional organisations transform into a data-driven business?
  • How do companies share data between different entities, regions and business units, when they are subject to different regulations?
