Data2030 Summit 2021

5th Edition

8th – 11th February | Online Event

About the Summit

Data2030 Summit is an annual strategy roundtable event gathering the Data Management community in one platform to discuss ways of enabling faster Data Innovation and AI deployment across the enterprise by setting up a modern Data Management strategy and platform for the new decade. With domestic and international speakers presenting across three days, roundtable discussions and plenty of other learning and networking activities, the 2021 online summit is the place to be for all CDOs and data practitioners working with Information Management, Data Governance, Master Data Management, Data Quality, Enterprise Architecture and DataOps.

The 2021 program focuses on the most business critical Data Management challenges as well the latest methodologies, strategies and tools used by organizations to address those challenges. The program is divided in three days, each day focusing on a specific topic.

3 Days. 2 Regions. 1 Event.

For the past five years the event has served as a remarkable knowledge-sharing and networking platform for data practitioners in the Nordics. This special 2021 online edition of the event goes beyond the Nordics and extends its reach to the MEA region as well.

Streamed as two parallel stages through one platform, the delegates from both regions will have the opportunity to follow regional presentations as if on an independent event, but also have the opportunity to hear the other region presentations and network with all participants from the both regions. This setup provides personal regional insights and benefits, as well as cross regional benchmarking and networking possibilities.

Data Governance & Data Quality

Strategy and technical day focusing on ways of create an agile and modern data strategy with sustainable Governance and Data Quality as a prerequisite for enterprise grade integration of Advanced Analytics and AI – from ownership to implementation. The presentations are held in English and in duration of 30 minutes.

Cloud Enabled Modern Data Platform

Strategy and technical day focusing on how organizations can manage applications, assets and resources across traditional and multi-cloud environments in ways that deliver visibility, automation and governance. The presentations are held in English and in duration of 30 minutes.

DataOps | Master Data Management

Technical day focusing on techniques to applying agile, collaborative and user-friendly approach to building and managing Data Pipelines. The presentations are held in English and in duration of 30 minutes.

Topic related Roundtables

During the main three days event, through the event app the delegates and partners will have the opportunity to join topic related roundtable discussions moderated by experts and speakers. All roundtables are 45 min and can host in total 8 participants including the moderator. This small group setup incentivises deeper conversations and allows all participants to have an opportunity to share their thoughts on the area.

Regional Stages

The two regions, the Nordics and The Middle East region, will have a dedicated stage with a schedule based on their regional time zone. At some point of the day the two stages meet for joined presentation or roundtable discussions. Delegates attending the event can also participate or review the presentations of the other region as well network with all the participants at the summit.

Limited Edition

As with the past editions of the event, to maintain the networking and knowledge-sharing experience, the summit is limited to a maximum of 200 participants per region. Speakers and exhibitors are carefully prequalified and selected to match the current regional market challenges, and provide outstanding content and insights relevant to the participants attending. The event has been sold out way in advance, on the past 5 editions.

Data governance foundation to enable proper data use: Interview with Ole Busk Poulsen
Delving into the true purpose of DataOps: Interview with Andrea Piro

As data grew to become the blood that sustains the modern organisation, so did the need for people and resources to manage and derive value from it. But mitigating to the cloud or adopting a fancy IT solution doesn’t automatically make the company data-driven. Enterprise AI and algorithmic processes require perfect synchronisation and agility. This is where DataOps comes in the picture – as a single point of contact when something goes out of sync or a vessel engineer that makes sure data is delivered to the users, as Andrea Piro, DataOps Manager at A.P. Moller – Maersk, interpreted it.
Andrea Piro shared his views on the DataOps role in the modern data-driven organisation, as a preface to his Data 2030 Summit session.

How to implement Master Data Management in large companies: Interview with Martin Treder

Implementing Master Data Management in a small company or startup and a large organisation is two completely different things. While in small organisations, a handful of people can take care of the data, in large companies the number and complexity of departments put data at risk of staying siloed, which may lead to great difficulties for extracting value from it. Martin Treder, Information Domain Owner at Boehringer Ingelheim, who has spent more than 15 years working on end-to-end data management and data governance in large organisations, will be sharing some insider tips on Implementing Master Data Governance in Large Complex Organisations at the Data 2030 Summit.

Data and analytics maturity in the energy industry: Interview with Mikko Muurinen
DataOps is the data-driving license to make data first-class citizen: Interview with Manuel Brnjic

DataOps has already gotten the epithet “enterprise data management for the AI era”. It transforms the technology and culture of an enterprise to foster data trust, protection, cycle times, insights, and cost-effectiveness, enabling a more agile and seamless data analytics. However, goes beyond data management for the AI enterprise. As Manuel Brnjic, DataOps Team Lead at Walter Group explained, DataOps is not just about AI, ML or Data Science. It is the data-driving license for companies willing to make data their first-class citizen. The whole organisation sees benefit in DataOps adoption.

Data and analytics trends that will loom large in 2021 and beyond

The power of data and analytics is no longer elusive, regardless of the level of business. Once far-fetched technologies like big data, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning have captured the attention of everyone from IT professionals, data analytics, data engineers, to top-level enterprise executives.
Various industries, business functions and disciplines have embraced the transformative capacity of data analytics and its promise to optimise business processes, cut costs, increase revenue, improve competitiveness and accelerate innovation.
