Conference Day One

Monday, September 9th, 2019

1:00 PM THINK TANK: How to reap the maximum benefits from your AI? To build, buy or collaborate?

With so many options to choose from, it’s likely that organisations and decision makers face a challenge in choosing the best option for their AI journey. The wrong decision to whether buy end-to-end externally, build inhouse, or collaborate leading to an expensive, costly and negative publicity experiment, one that no organisation would want to have.

Key Question: How do you ascertain the readiness of your organisation to leverage data science?
  • Understanding one’s true internal data science capability to assess the direction needed. Do you have a capable data scientist team in your organisation? If not, do you have the capability of bringing in data scientists in your current line of businesses?
  • Finding the right vendor to cater to your needs and understanding each others capacities, approaches and mindsets

Conference Day Two

Tuesday, September 10th, 2019

10:10 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Tech Integrity: All technologies promise enhancing your organisation. How do they all come together in ensuring maximum results?

With plenty of technologies at our disposal, and all promising to enhance efficiency, engagement and advancement, choosing the right one to invest in is one of the toughest tasks leaders face today. Even if organisations have the budgets and capabilities to accommodate all technologies, knowing how they come together and compliment each other is key to a successful transformation.

Key question: How do we maximise the impact of all the available technologies and make them work together to enable a successful business transformation?
