From chaos to control: harnessing the possibilities of data

Thursday 8 June – PA with Unilever and Microsoft

Facing a volatile world, leaders must pivot faster and more precisely to remain resilient and relevant. Leading brands have been insatiable in their appetite for data, but struggle to unlock its full value. They’ve become data-rich, but insight-poor – left wondering how to translate disparate data points and the latest breakthroughs in AI technologies into competitive superiority.

Getting ahead requires leaders to bring control to what can feel like chaos – and to coalesce single points of data into compelling constellations of insight. From this comes the ability to unlock significant value; drive innovation; carve out product and service advantage; and create new levels of resilience.

PA data science and AI experts Alwin Magimay and Richard Chamier, along with leaders from Unilever and Microsoft, explored how industry leaders are successfully navigating these data challenges. We discussed how to bring greater control to the dynamic data landscape so they can move forward with optimism and unlock new, data-driven opportunities.
