The journey will take place on 1-4 October 2013 and is an invitation only opportunity.
BIG DATA + BIG INFORMATION + BIG ANALYTICS = BIG RESPONSIBILITYNavigating the complex landscape of data, analyses, politics and people
A global neural system of machines, data and people are talking with each other, which in turn is changing the way governments, businesses and societies act and interact. How can you better understand the rapid evolution of this complex landscape and at the same time enable your organization/s to make smarter, more informed decisions and better strategic choices?
A new reality is made possible by the growing phenomenon “big data.” Perhaps the most significant breakthrough of big data is the digitalization of just about everything: the technology leap resulting in the ever-increasing speed of computing, the immediacy of observations and measurements of all kinds, the increasingly rapid evolution of data storage, just to name a few examples.
This learning journey will be a contribution to a better understanding of these dynamics. Up to ten participants from leading positions in Nordic companies will be invited to participate. The composition of the group will include leaders from different fields and backgrounds with an emphasis on public sector.
A learning journey is an intensive mobile workshop that can help us look at these questions in a systematic way and help widen our understanding of the context and impact of the responsibilities and opportunities that emerge from the analysis of big data.
The program is a blend of meetings with experts, of study visits, of shared experiences with practitioners from various fields – companies, academia or organizations, and not least internal discussions among the participants. Documentation and analyses take place instantaneously.
The journey will be facilitated by Tom Cummings
