Top Sessions to Attend at the 2019 Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in London

With the 2019 Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in London off to the races, the excitement at ASG is building. As a Silver Sponsor of the event, we are exhibiting at booth S19 and will be exploring as many sessions with our industry peers as we can. For those attending the event, we’ve pulled together some of the sessions we are most excited about to give you a head start on your Gartner D&A agenda.
  • The Foundation and Future of Data and Analytics—Monday, March 4, 8:30-9:15 a.m.
Data governance strategies that focus only on policy, compliance and enforcement no longer serve the needs of digital organizations. Today’s organizations need adaptive, agile governance that keeps up with the speed of business. In this session, Saul Judah, VP Analyst at Gartner, discusses the evolution of governance practices and how to enable better business outcomes.
  • Keynote: Lead with Purpose to Achieve Clarity in a World of Ambiguity—Monday, March 4, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Whether you are the chief data officer, a department head or simply the go-to data “guru” in your workgroup, your organization is looking to you for guidance in an increasingly data-driven world. In this session, Gartner’s all-star lineup of keynote speakers will discuss how data and analytics leaders can find purpose in their data initiatives to drive their organizations forward. You won’t want to miss hearing from Alys Woodward, Sr Director Analyst, Gareth Herschel, VP Analyst, Peter Krensky, Principal Analyst, and James Richardson, Sr Director Analyst at Gartner.
  • “Get Privacy” – Use GDPR as a Foundation Guide for Customer Data and Analytics Prerequisites—Monday, March 4, 2:00-2:45 p.m.
As maturing privacy laws such as the GDPR, CCPA and LGPD increase the risk of non-compliance, organizations may wonder if privacy is overrated. In this session, Bart Willemsen, Sr Director Analyst at Gartner, discusses why companies need to show they take privacy seriously to prove they value their customers—before they go elsewhere.
  • The Future of Data Infrastructure in the Digital Enterprise—Tuesday, March 5, 11:00-11:45 a.m.
Enabling the use of data across the enterprise and beyond is now imperative for today’s digital businesses. As a result, the database management market is changing rapidly, cloud is becoming the platform of choice and pricing models are under pressure. Donald Feinberg, distinguished VP Analyst at Gartner, dives into how technologies are evolving and emerging to support this transformation, and what vendors should do to keep pace with a fast-changing market.
  • The Top Technology Trends in Data and Analytics that Will Change Your Business—Wednesday, March 6, 9:00-9:45 a.m.
AI isn’t the only innovation driving rapid change in data and analytics. From the next generation of augmented analytics tools to the use of continuous intelligence to interpret data streams—analysis can now be deployed in a number of new ways. Stop by this session with Gareth Herschel, VP Analyst at Gartner, and Donald Feinberg to understand how these changes will impact business and allow organizations to prioritize digital initiatives.
  • Metadata Management is a Must-Have Discipline—Wednesday, March 6, 9:00-9:45 a.m.
With the GDPR and data governance pressure, transparency around data use is more important than ever. This climate has created a need for metadata management, yet data and analytics leaders struggle get their practices off the ground. In this session, Alan Dayley, VP Analyst at Gartner, addresses the following questions: 1) How can metadata management deliver value? 2) How do you set up a metadata management practice? 3) What technologies support the metadata management practice?
