Keynote Discussion Panel: Data–driven Decision Making during a Crisis

Data is the fuel for decision making – day-to-day decisions and strategic decisions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, data was the lifeblood of every country’s response. This panel discussion will explore what that decision making looked like in Australia, and what were the lessons learned.

  • What does interdisciplinary knowledge really look like?
  • Data sharing – and why the value of those models can only increase with sharing
  • Examining the usefulness of information in a context like this
  • How to consider all the evidence in decision making
  • How do we measure the effectiveness of different data decisions?
  • How do you explain it and communicate it to the public?
  • The balance between epidemiological modelling and macro-economic forecasts in decision making
  • How has COVID impacted relative momentum internationally?

The habits of highly effective data-driven organisations

In a world where data is growing exponentially, and advanced analytics and machine learning (ML) are becoming standards, why do so many organisations still struggle at executing a successful data strategy? From thousands of practitioners, we've observed that the most common traits of successful data teams lie in evolving their technology and their culture. In this session, we'll discuss how data democratisation starts with disruptive leadership and simplifying the data architecture in order to empower data teams with the right tools and creative freedom to do their best work and harness the true power of data.

Dashboards are Dead: How Langs empowered their business with Search and AI driven answers

Analytics continues to evolve and create new opportunities for organisations that embrace the accelerated pace of change. Many stick to the status quo, however, and fail to capitalise on the value of modern analytics. Stagnant business practices, resistant individuals, and legacy software are all to blame. In this session Langs Building Supplies will explore how they’ve used ThoughtSpot to overcome these barriers to flourish in the new data-driven world. We will learn how Langs embraced modern cloud analytics to take the place of dashboards and provide personalised insights to all.

Keynote Panel Discussion: The Future of Data and Analytics post-COVID-19

Correlation tells you how numbers interacted in the past, but it doesn’t tell you the structure of that data. After a shock, the ability for data leaders to forecast future scenarios is so much harder, as you can’t just draw on previous trends. This panel will examine:

  • What will the post-COVID business look like?
  • To what extent will data and analytics play a more important role in most organisations?
  • What digital trends have been accelerated for organisations?
  • How do data and analytics leaders support organisations during a crisis?
  • Do we see a reverting back to a tried and tested (and not necessarily right) data approach during a crisis?
  • What happens when you cannot use historical data to make decisions?
  • How have businesses had to change their approach around systems and frameworks?

Are you future-fit for the “Rise of the Augmented Consumer”?

Gartner identifies “the rise of the augmented consumer” a top trend for data and analytics.  Why?  

Many users today use predefined dashboards and manual data exploration that lead to false conclusions, resulting in incorrect decisions. In the near future these dashboards will be replaced with “automated, conversational, mobile, and dynamically generated insights customised to a user’s needs and delivered to their point of consumption” - the augmented consumer.

So how prepared is your organisation and how can you fast track your capabilities to stay ahead of the trend?  Glen Rabie, CEO and Co-founder of Yellowfin, highlights the top three things you must act on now.
