Join us in our quest to achieve successful digital transformation, through looking beyond our own data garden wall and look at the successful outcomes that the marriage of internal and external data provides. Little ink has been spilled about the importance of looking outside one’s garden wall to better understand the world we all operate in. Companies running a tremendous amount of data often get trapped in a frog-in-a-well approach, failing to review external conditions and information and staying stuck in their inside universe. This leads to a limited view on their businesses and industries and eventually to a major setback against competitors who do understand the game of integrated data.

Yet today’s advancement in Big Data can bring headaches even to the best data team a company might have. We have data about everything, but we don’t always know what outside industry data is most relevant for our forecast models, as every industry has its specifics. What we do know is that the initial selection of data paired with inside business intelligence can make or break a successful model.

By 2020, the digital universe is expected to reach 44 zettabytes. That’s information on weather, traffic, location, likes and dislikes, emotions, travel, searches, political opinions, cultural customs, religious beliefs and many more. All things you can leverage to analyze and predict customer consumption patterns. Our panel strongly believes that by combining all these factors, together we can create an Outcomes Driven Economy, to completely change the way our world works and benefit society in a positive and permanent way.
