Tuesday, May 4th, 2021: 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM Thursday, May 6th
Faced with a constantly evolving business landscape and unprecedented levels of uncertainty, it's more vital than ever that data and analytics leaders such as the chief data officer and chief analytics officer (CDO and CAO) forge new paths to enable a data-and-analytics-centric culture within their organizations.

Data and analytics leaders must be able to tie data and analytics strategy to business outcomes and promote the adoption of technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), while creating a resilient culture that accelerates change, and where data literacy, digital trust, governance and data-driven critical thinking are pervasive.

The virtual Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, May 4 - 6, 2021, offers content for every member of your data and analytics team - from technical- to senior-level strategy. Join data and analytics leaders to gain the skills to build and execute a world-class strategy.

TOPIC: 'Integration & Automation in Healthcare'

It is clear that AI has vast potential for healthcare organizations to innovate. It has already started on the administrative side of healthcare and the future is boundless.

Join us for our upcoming Tech Talk led by Script Sender on how integrations are enabling hospitals and healthcare organizations to do more than ever before.

Using BI and AI to take PPM into the 21 Century

online

Intelligent Project Portfolio Management (PPM)

Waterfall, Agile and Hybrid solutions are all performing at the 50% to 60% on-time and to budget level. No breakthrough occurred with Agile. Portfolio Managers, Investors and even Project Managers still lack true governance of duration, cost and future resource requirements through the life of a project and even less for a portfolio of projects.

  • Does adding BI and AI provide the answer?
  • How do we convert Data into information and into Real-Time Intelligence?
  • How do we use technology to provide new questions, rather than just answer old question faster?

Making Impact Work For Startups: How Founders Can Make Progress on the SDGs
Wednesday, April 14th, 2021: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
online

To create a brighter future, it will require the collective efforts of organizations of all kinds and sizes - including startups. However, for most entrepreneurs lofty impact goals can seem unattainable, expensive, or best left to governments and large organizations.

On this interactive workshop, you can learn how to identify impact metrics for your business that are actionable and attainable (no matter what size of company you are), so that you can make real progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals ("SDGs"). There will also be a long networking portion of this event where you can meet other entrepreneurs interested in impact. This event is open to all entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes, even those whose core products are not directly "impact" related.
