Leading Big Data Summit for Large Corporations / Loads of Use Cases / Lots of Time and Space for Meaningful Networking / Monetize Big Data Now!

Data is the fuel of digitalization. Big Data Analytics and AI are the core technologies for successful digital business models. The 5th Data Strategy Talk (formerly Big Data Strategy Dialog) provides invited decision makers with efficient strategies and management methods for better utilizing Big Data by presenting successful use cases up and running in large corporations. On top of that you can dive deeper in one-to-one and group meetings with peers, consultants, solution providers and scientists.

Powerful analysis of data collected from internal and external sources is the foundation for the development of new digital services and products, as well as for strategic planning and decision-making. Data science uncovers hidden correlations in the alleged data chaos, thus enabling better predictions and innovations serving market needs not seen before.
