Building the Intelligent Enterprise

Data-driven companies are harnessing the power of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence to make smarter decisions, optimize service and streamline operations. Where does your organization stand in its evolution?

Building the Intelligent Enterprise will help you embrace the imperatives of digital transformation, envision where your teams and organization need to be in 10 years—and map out the strategies and tactics to get them there.

In two high-powered days, expert-led interactive sessions will explore and demystify big data, data science and artificial intelligence’s latest iterations: machine learning and deep learning. You’ll explore the skills leaders need to drive digital transformation, harness data for results and lead an intelligent enterprise. You’ll understand how to select, manage and measure the impact of projects and strategies. You’ll explore ideas from leading thinkers about how the data revolution is reshaping society, culture and the nature of work. You’ll examine ethical implications as the use of advanced analytics and AI expands exponentially.
