It’s a truism that all businesses use data. E.g. products and services must be created/sourced to appropriate specifications, stock levels need to match order books and cash must be available to flow to where it’s needed when its needed, and so on. Nothing new here. However to source, store and use the right data at the right time takes a strategy and management. If done well, and better than competitors, profitable advantage should be achieved.

This presentation explores what “data-driven” really means in the context of an enterprise. How does a business measure where they are now and determine what it should do to achieve a higher level of performance using the relevant data? What are the different approaches that can be used to achieve this? What are the pit-falls to watch out for? What strategy will lead to a continuous cycle of improvement that funds itself?
