Required prior knowledge

Basic level training: this training requires no prior knowledge and covers the basics of the subject.

This workshop is not technical in nature. On the contrary, it provides you as a manager a clear outlook on how you can put data into practice through a data driven and analytical approach. In order to develop your action plan, it is useful to be involved in the data-related ambitions of your organization. 



How organizations create value through Business Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence 

Companies create value by using their data efficiently. One way to realize value is the creation of company-wide dashboards. Another commonly popular way is by solving a well-defined use case in Artificial Intelligence. But what is AI today? How can we summarize the capabilities in a number of distinct and concrete activities? What can we expect from this technology? And what can you do to make sure AI delivers value in your context? 

A modern data organization and the role of data strategy 

Companies in different industries realize how important data is for realizing but also steering strategy. Handling the organizations data in a structural way implies much more that setting up a first use case in IT. By describing the organization of mature players in the industry, we illustrate which activities are crucial in creating a modern, versatile data organization. We focus on the crucial role of data strategy, aiming at maximizing value creation. And we also discuss key competences needed to realize a modern data-driven organization. 

How to manage data to reap systematic benefits 

In order to reap maximal benefits from being data-driven, it is crucial to create the foundations for a highly performing and scalable data environment. In order to do so, companies create data products as building blocks that enable a smooth flow of data from the sources to the users. Such products reside on modern data platforms and solve some of the most common pains in organizations today: how can we ensure that all data is available in a timely and qualitative manner? 

Managing information and sensitive data 

Last but not least, organizations need to organize their data related processes. They need to carefully determine who has access to which data. They need to understand how crucial data flows throughout the organization. They need to continuously aim to improve data quality. And they need to monitor how all data procedures comply with the European legislation.
