Managing Your Data Estate - Putting AI To Work Instead of Play

Having connected, informed, intelligent and responsive data is the aspiration for properly transforming your organization. Yet data siloes, disconnected systems, and incongruent data inhibit this organizational nirvana. Combine that with how much focus is now set on GenAI and there's an even bigger hill to climb. 

Instead, how do you take the hype and capabilities around AI to build a broader data estate, regardless of the business unit, system or cloud that it resides? Join this session with your CDAO peers to discuss:

  • Creating the most effective ecosystem and adopting new GenAI capabilities 
  • Maximizing your data, analytics, and AI investments 
  • Simplifying how you leverage data fabric and AI
