02:00 p.m. - Making Data Visualization Actionable for Strategy & Planning

Bluescope analysts needed rich and new ways to access and understand the data produced by their rapidly growing businesses in ASEAN. Creating credible and trusted metrics was earlier challenging, especially when part of a regional organization with their own established processes and unique local perspectives, and for a large potential user base. Managing disparate and complex data sets made the task tougher. Recently, a new challenge was presented to the company: How to leverage data visualization to create tools that change the way they run their business. The Commercial & Strategy team at NS Bluescope deployed a number of strategies to create dashboards that drive actionable insights and decision making. In this presentation, hear about how Bluescope has built a unified framework which enabled them to gain a better understanding of their business needs, design and promote adoption of analytical dashboards that put new capabilities into the hands of their teams.

Breakout 2 - IT Professionals (Room: Orchid Junior)

01:30 p.m. - Data & Advanced Analytics: High Stakes, High Rewards

Global executives who understand the full value of advanced analytics are making it a core element in their business strategies and using it as a competitive differentiator. That is why they are embedding analytics into all parts of their enterprises, beyond traditional pockets like marketing and sales departments. Senior leaders are opening their minds — and their checkbooks — to capitalize on opportunities created by the explosion of data and sophisticated analytics. However, a new survey by EY and Forbes Insights shows that this is one area where simply boosting investments does not necessarily lead to better outcomes. In fact, many large enterprises throughout the world still struggle to achieve the promise of today’s analytics capabilities.

Kanny Lee, Executive Director, Fraud Investigations & Dispute Services, Ernst & Young Advisory

02:00 p.m. - Traditional BI vs. Modern BI: Does it Matter?

BI historically has been characterized as highly centralized and lacking in self-service. The arrival of Tableau heralded a new breed of software called Modern BI which firmly centered on empowering the business user to simply and easily ask their own questions of their data. For some, this represents a tug of war between IT control and centralization vs business agility and data freedom - but the two need not be mutually exclusive and this session explores how you can leverage the best features from both.

How can we ensure people have real-time access to the right data and are not sharing confidential information? How do we provide security and governance while still allowing users to play freely with fresh data? Learn how Tableau enables organizations of any size to easily deploy a modern self-service analytics platform that supports the full spectrum of freedom and governance.
