Keynote Presentation: "Embedded Analytics - People, Products and the elusive 3rd P"

Analytics can have long term, sustainable impact when predictive capabilities are embedded into business processes and customer facing tools. Such Products are often developed by cross functional teams that include Data Scientists and Product Managers. These People however have different ways of working, so collaboration does not always seem natural and often needs some glue to hold it together. As a first step in defining this elusive 3rd P, I have looked at examples of Embedded Analytics across 8 industries. The intent of this interactive session is to share findings with this group of senior data executives and understand your reflections on some key points.

Thought leadership featuring Oracle: "Data Capital In The Enterprise: The Hidden Data Economy"

Inside every company is a hidden data economy, and for most it’s split in two.  IT's command economy produces a limited set of authoritative data products for the business to consume largely as-is. And then there’s the gray market, a chaotic back-and-forth where the insatiable demand of data scientists, analysts, and developers creates its own data supply through modified extracts of official corporate sources, third-party feeds, and new observations derived through use of the data itself. Visionary leaders must combine these two approaches to exploiting data capital into something new: an internal regulated market economy in data that allows faster innovation but within corporate safeguards. This presentation summarizes Oracle’s latest thinking on enterprise architecture and how innovations in cloud, machine learning, and analytics work together to deliver a new approach to data management and help organizations bring their data economy into the light.
