Programme Overview

The need to embrace Big Data Strategies is critical and clear. Company leaders today feel the pressure to adapt and transform their organizations in the face of digital disruption. New and old rivals are using Big Data strategies to transform traditional organizations’ value chains, thereby gaining market share, squeezing profit margins and disrupting many industries.

Nevertheless, despite most leaders’ best efforts, and millions of dollars spent in pursuit of disruption through Big Data, the sweet spot of this Big Data disruption is still elusive for many. And even if the “what” is clear, the vast majority of organizational change programs (the “how”) fall short of their intended impact.

This new, hands-on, training course demonstrates a fresh approach for establishing a Big Data strategy and implementing a digital transformation program. With a balanced approach combining a different mindset and a new methodology, this course will help participants gain the knowledge and competencies to save millions of dollars, and years of work, driving digital transformation within their organizations in order to benefit/profit from Big Data.
