Fusion Alliance was thrilled to support the inaugural CDO & Data Leaders’ Global Summit on May 5, 2021.
This virtual event was organized by the CDO Magazine and Enterprise Data Management Council. It provided an incredible opportunity to learn, network, and be inspired by some of the best thought leaders in the data field. And, even better, registration for this event is complimentary.
Two of our leaders, Mark Johnson and Saj Patel, presented at the Global Summit this year. You can check out their presentations (details below) along with the full event’s content here.
Mark Johnson, Executive Director, Client Solutions moderated a panel titled “Exploration of modern data management approaches that deliver sustained business value (vs. ROI).” This panel explores contemporary views on how to accelerate the delivery of an integrated data management capability while embracing federation to drive adoption. Panelists include Bob Markiewicz of Johnson & Johnson, Mike Onders of Key Bank, Derek Strauss of Gavroshe, Richie Bachala of Sherwin Williams, Moez Hassan of Royal Caribbean , and Peter Aiken of DAMA International.
Saj Patel, Vice-President of Data Practice, will be presenting a session titled “Defining ROI in the modern data world and identifying the opportunities for ROI from data and analytics.” While ROI is still a requirement to justify large investments in data initiatives, its definition, construct and perception has changed in the modern era. He will begin by clearly describing this new understanding of ROI and how this alters the mindset to launch new initiatives. Then, he will explore the opportunities to achieve return from data and analytics and the right way to focus energy to find those opportunities that matter most. Last, he will discuss how modern data platforms and new innovations are helping to reduce the “investment” part of the equation and accelerate the “time-to-market” for ROI.
