8:35 am - 9:15 am On the Edge: Real-World Strategies to Leverage Fog Computing, 5G and the IoT

The process of streamlining and automating the data supply chain has made substantial strides towards achieving operational efficiency thanks to advances in cloud computing, autoML,  and embedded analytics. As telecommunication companies began to introduce 5G capabilities to an expanding amount of markets, the pace of technological disruption stands to be dramatically accelerated as companies capitalize on the convergence of the aforementioned technology and existing IoT infrastructures to achieve scalable edge computing strategies. Ultimately,  companies will need to move away from the centralized architecture  enabled by the cloud to a more decentralized approach that leverages the gains in data velocity capabilities to

  • Reduced reliance on cloud providers can ally concerns about third-party reliance and storage costs.
  • Companies reduce risks related to data ownership 
  • Telecom and IT are projected to have the biggest market share during 2017-2022 forecast period

11:10 am - 11:40 am Navigating the Vendor Selection & Evaluation Process

As more solution providers and data platforms enter the marketplace, Data & Analytics leaders are now tasked with sifting through seemingly endless options. In this interactive discussion, we will share ways to:
•          Streamline the arduous vendor selection and contracting process
•          Work within limited timeframes to  efficiently evaluate potential vendors and manage post-contract
•          The importance of requesting examples of real-world applications from potential solution providers
•          Hidden jewels - sourcing novel solutions from smaller, start-up offerings

11:40 am - 12:20 pm The Path to Building the Data & Analytics Organization of the Future

As the roles of the CDO and CAO continue to evolve from a mere carve out of the CIO to a true seat at the table there are many questions about the ideal organizational structure.  How will the roles evolve from a very tactical role to one of increased strategy, vision and leadership?  How will those skills be developed?  What is the ideal reporting structure to allow for true innovation and creativity?

Listen and participate in this very topical and important discussion about what the future will be and where you will fit in
