Whatever the industry, having real time data available from multiple sources is essential to move the needle on performance. Creating the right products, at the right time, at the right level of quality and cost requires information and insights in a common context. That means the indicators that matter are available to the operators who need them, when they need them.
Join our session to understand why data quality is essential to support the analytics - and eventually machine learning - that will drive higher performance; and why data management is vital to select the relevant datasets that can support chosen use cases.
We also look to the importance of understanding the digital maturity of a business and why it s essential to help drive the adoption of new solutions and change the way a company works, addressing people, processes and technology. Thinking long-term will drive sustainable results and continuous improvement, as transformation has to be seen as a journey, not a one-off exercise.
