 08:40 - 10:15 BST

 Thursday 17 September 2020 
 Virtual Event - Taking Place on Zoom 

Business Intelligence and analytics are widespread. Yet this alone does not guarantee the capability to embed evidence-based decision-making at every level of an organisation. In fact, many tools entrench a siloed approach, and do not build the essential confidence and trust required to become truly insight driven.

Trust is a vital component of any data strategy. We explore how to build trust in data, how to increase collaboration and give your teams the flexibility and self-sufficiency to derive value from the mass of data flowing into your organisation.

Join IT and Business Intelligence leaders to understand how to build trust in data at every level of the enterprise, how to democratise access to data and the benchmarks for trusted analytics.
