Eventbrite - Data Culture: Why we should all embrace it

*Update* Speaker amendement. We are pleased that Ric Howe, Data Strategist – Data Platform, BI & Advanced Analytics from Microsoft will now be presenting at this event.

Does data really give you the competitive edge? And should we all be embracing it?

In a mobile first, cloud first world, data is not only consumed but generated at astonishing rates and in increasing quantities. Developing the ability to convert data into knowledge is an ambitious challenge. It requires technology to understand context, derive intent and separate signal from noise.

Ric Howe believes that with the right tools, insights can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time. When that happens, organisations develop what he describes as a “data culture.”

Join Ric Howe, Data Strategist – Data Platform, BI & Advanced Analytics from Microsoft as he explains what data culture means for us all.
