CDO/ML/AI East Virtual Summit

June 22, 2021

CDO/ML/AI East Virtual Summit

In today’s digital landscape, the role of the CIO/ CDO has become the most dynamic amongst their peers. CIOs are focused on finding the most transformative technologies that enable them to bring value to their enterprise and customers.

Adopting an enterprise wide transformation strategy is driven by fundamental shifts in internal and external forces that impact the business and how it operates. Disruptive technologies are being introduced to the market faster than ever and executives must have the ability to align and address the enterprise-wide transformation challenges. These changes will ultimately influence strategic planning, business operations and the overall trajectory of the operating model moving forward. With unceasing demands, technology has become more complex and solution providers more difficult to decipher.

Apex Assembly will unite visionary leaders and industry experts for a half day of content and discussion, where we will examine the challenges of 2020 and concentrate on the most pressing issues of 2021 in the information technology sector.

Through collaboration with our executive community, we have discovered key industry challenges and trends. These topics form the foundation of the Summit and will be addressed through Panels, Disrupter sessions, and Fireside chats.

Hosted using video conferencing technology, our Virtual Summit gives executives and service providers the opportunity to engage with like-minded executives and industry leaders without having to leave their office or home.

Anyone can log in from anywhere. All you need is WiFi.

Traditional data governance had a principle aim of protecting the integrity of key business data for reporting, be it regulatory, financial or other strategic KPIs. This meant that focus was generally around data quality and lineage of critical data elements that could be found on strategic reports. But in the age of modern analytics, there is more urgency to use increasingly rawer data, creating an overwhelming task of managing and protecting potentially hundreds or even thousands of sources and fields to unlock value. This session will outline how modern data discovery and catalog techniques can be used to shift data governance further up the data funnel and how these techniques can accelerate the production of high value predictive models at speed in a Data Ops methodology.

  • The role of the CDO is expanding from a defensive posture to a value driver
  • Data Governance for AI and predictive modeling requires a new method of data governance anchored around easy but secure access to data in addition to aspects such as lineage and quality
  • Data Ops methodology changes are key to delivering demonstrable value
