The Premier Global Data Analytics Conference

We brought Corinium’s globally acclaimed conference format to New Zealand in November 2017. The most comprehensive event for data development and innovation having gained a prime spot on the agenda of C-suite executives across the globe. 

The inaugural Chief Data & Analytics Officer New Zealand event gathered the country’s leading data and analytics executives to share their insights on developing the infrastructure, ecosystem, buy-in, culture and strategies to effectively harness data as a strategic asset. 2017 was a fantastic event with engaging presentations, meaningful two-way discussions and invaluable networking opportunities. The two days covered many topics and issues from open data, culture, leadership skills,  data ownership  and governance strategies, to the deployment of advanced analytics.

Conference themes for 2017 included:

THE DATA DRIVEN C-SUITE - Evaluating data analytics investment, prominence and acceptance in the boardroom.

DATA FRAMEWORK: MANAGED AND GOVERNED - Data governance, quality, privacy and ethics. Developing robust data strategies that support the current and future needs of the enterprise.

DATA SCIENCE AND INTELLIGENCE -  Adopting and evaluating data driven approaches and tools to support the move from data insight to execution. Practical experiences on the future of analytics: open source and advanced, predictive and experimental analytics.

CULTURE AND LEADERSHIP - Defining, fostering and embedding a culture of data analytics and insight based decision making. Democratising analytics to foster insight and co-operation throughout the organisation.

THE SMART ENTERPRISE - Driving innovation, agility and business value. Monetising data to deliver strategic worth to the business.
