Please join us for a live webinar as The Times and The Sunday Times, in partnership with Microsoft, bring together an expert panel to discuss how more intelligent, effective use of data can turbocharge service improvements and enable companies to survive and thrive.
For many companies, ‘Know thy customer’ has become a mantra and way of life. By analysing data quicker than ever, they can tailor products and services, boost product development and offer customers an altogether improved service. Some sectors including healthcare and transport are taking this to a whole new level.
How can data inform successful new business models? How can widening access to data allow organisations to make smart, data-driven decisions from top to bottom? And how can leaders ensure they are prepared for an AI-enabled future?
Our panel of experts will discuss how technology and analytics capability is helping them transform their sectors for the benefit of society, to bring more innovative and relevant products to market more quickly, and to disrupt by creating new business models and new distribution channels.REGISTER NOW
