Featured Speakers
Data Exchange and Data Marketplaces: Opportunities, Challenges and Lessons Learned
Bettina Goerner, CDO, Centogene, Germany & Marion Mesnage, Head of Amadeus Nexwave, Spain
Data sharing, data partnerships and data monetization are increasingly considered as critical components of any data strategy, capable of generating substantial economic benefits to private and public organizations and to society in general.
Whether it is for reducing operational costs, driving new revenue streams or for generating benefits for the common good, facilitated access to data and secure data exchanges within trusted data marketplaces are real game changers.
In this facilitated session, innovative leaders from agriculture, travel & tourism, genetic & biotech, and commerce, engaged in data exchange and data marketplace initiatives, will share their views and experience in building business cases, getting executive buy-in, defining effective business and operational models, and more generally advancing the data exchange agenda within their organizations or institutions. Session 10A, 11:30am-12:30pm, July 21, 2021
Making Self Service Work: How to Empower, Align, and Retain Data Analysts
Wayne Eckerson, President, Eckerson Group, USA
Most organizations have dozens, if not hundreds of data analysts embedded in various departments and business units who query, manipulate, and analyze data and generate reports. These data analysts cost organizations tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in wages annually. More surprisingly, corporate data teams don’t know most of the data analysts in their organization, nor do they have a strategy to align them or optimize their organization’s investment in them. Session 6C, 4:35pm-5:20pm, July 20, 2021
