The premier event for Data & Analytics Executives - DETAILS for 2019 coming soon!

Revealing the latest data, analytics and AI innovations driving the smart enterprise.

The 2018 Chief Data & Analytics Officer Sydney event gathered the country’s leading data and analytics executives to share their insights on driving innovation, agility and business value through data, sharing strategies to effectively harness data as a strategic asset. 2018 was a fantastic event with engaging presentations, meaningful two-way discussions and invaluable networking opportunities that delivered practical insights of the challenges of a data led strategy. The three days covered many topics and issues from data monetisation, culture, leadership skills, data ownership and governance strategies, to the deployment of advanced analytics.

Delegates heard about algorithmic daisy chains, codes of ethics, break-throughs, obstacles overcome and the real impact affecting change that organisations are realising. Knowledge and insight was available for our engaged audience to develop firm foundations to drive a successful data and analytics journey.

The conference featured fantastic talks from data and analytics leaders including Prateek Jain, Head of Technology who lifted the lid on analytics and machine learning at work at eHarmony. Ken Quarrie the Lead Scientist at New Zealand Rugby demonstrated how data insight was affecting change for the better. We heard the latest and greatest happenings at Sydney Water, Alfred Health, Seven West Media and Flight Centre Travel Group, wowed us with their state of the art image recognition via AI. We even heard how live sensors are processed using real-time streaming analytics and machine learning to create rich data streams and race insights for the Tour de France. Insights galore!

The first day culminated in a well attended and enthusiastic drinks reception. Day Two brought even more panel and presentation insight and engagement in our world-renowned discussion group formats. The event concluded with a look ahead through the lens of agile and adaptive analytics.

CDAO Sydney excelled at providing delegates with invaluable takeaways that could be applied directly to their business cases and empower their data strategies to drive growth and true business transformation. Attendees left feeling well equipped to navigate the coming months and looking forward to joining us again!
