The Journey to Sentience

Panel discussion with executives who will share real-world stories about their most critical challenges and wins as they operationalize their analytics roadmap in the era of Artificial Intelligence

Analytics agility is critical for large, multi-national businesses that are constantly at risk of being upended by disruptive forces. Executives understand that they need to act now, and begin on a path to automation, agility and sentience; a year from now will be too late.

To really address the concerns of today’s enterprises, Oliver Ratzesberger, Teradata’s Chief Product Officer, and Mohan Sawhney, a professor at the Kellogg School of Management, needed to find a way to help them achieve the success they seek. Not as a prescriptive process – but a methodology to become agile in leveraging data and analytics to drive competitive advantage. This practical guide came to fruition in their new book, “The Sentient Enterprise: The Evolution of Business Decision Making” [launched 10/17].

Join Oliver as he hosts a panel of pioneers, with real-world stories along their journey to a more sentient enterprise. Not all roadmaps are the same, but all are leveraging future-proofing strategies to retain or seize market leadership.

This panel of industry leaders will discuss:

  • The pilots that began their journey toward analytic agility in the era of AI
  • How to operationalize the 5 stages of The Sentient Enterprise
  • What it takes to get on a more predictive curve of analytics evolution to ensure long-term business success

Host: Oliver Ratzesberger, EVP and Chief Product Officer, Teradata

Panelists:

  • Grace Hwang, Executive Director, Business Intelligence, Verizon Wireless
  • Nadeem Gulzar, Head of Global Analytics, Danske Bank
  • Leif Evensen, GM Business Performance &Analytics, Westpac
  • Satyen Sangani, CEO, Alation
  • Aashu Virmani, CMO, Fuzzy Logix

  7:00am–8:45am (panel discussion 7:30am–8:30am)

    Anaheim Convention Center 264ABC

Includes espresso bar/breakfast, panel discussion, and book signing
