Information Technology Peer Group Web Meeting 

Data Centricity: Unleashing the True Power of Data Within Your Organization 
April 22, 2020 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
What does it mean to create and foster a data driven organization? This meeting will be held via web only. 

The health and safety of our members is the UWEBC’s top priority. UW–Madison is monitoring the COVID-19 situation in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies. Based on campus' guidance, the April 22 Information Technology Peer Group meeting will be held via web only to allow our members a convenient and safe way to attend.

Most organizations claim to be data-driven, but few have truly-enabled an insights-driven business. Research has shown that organizations that are heavily invested in their data programs are dominating their sectors and creating new markets by getting better insights to the right decision makers within the organization. A data-centric organization is one that is culturally and operationally oriented to use data intensely and deliberately to drive actionable insights across the organization. It means an organization that enjoys high confidence and intimacy with their data, has wide accessibility to data across the organization, and a culture that empowers employees to utilize data to drive decisions.

The April IT Peer Group web-meeting will examine how to enable data-centricity and create an organization committed to be better informed by their data. We will have presenters sharing ideas on Customer Data Platforms, creating easier accessibility to insights using natural language interfaces, and crafting data strategies that deliver insights more seamlessly across every level of the organization. This is an exceptional opportunity for technologists as well as marketers and operations leaders to discuss and share ideas on how we can develop and deliver better insights to drive business value. Please note that this meeting will be delivered entirely as a webcast.
