The term “Digital Transformation” is becoming overused and more of a buzz term with executives than it is actually changing organizations. But there is something to the move to utilization of data to make better decisions in order to address market needs, help reduce costs, and increase capabilities. Research has showed that mid-size enterprises that make digital transformation a priority are 2x as likely to see double-digit revenue gains and 4x less likely to report losses than peers who don’t embrace innovation. The fact is that organizations that succeed will be utilizing the data they collect to make better decisions than every before in the history of business and that revolution is now. A recent UN report stated that “… the volume data in the world is increasing exponentially. By some estimates 90% of that data has been created just in the last two years and is projected to increase by 40% annually”.
SPK’s team is at the forefront of leading this change from a technology perspective when it comes to data engineering and data analytics and our experts agree. We need to change the approach for most businesses and how they view data. This includes changing the way we approach data collecting, storage, utilization and policies around what have traditionally been a non-data-centric areas of the organization such as change management, product development, and human resources. In this talk, SPK experts will discuss how organizations can make a roadmap for success in order to make the changes needed to be a successful data-driven organization.
