Data2030 Summit 2021

APAC Edition

10th & 11th November | Online Event

About the Summit

The APAC 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.

For the past five years Data 2030 Summit has served as a remarkable knowledge-sharing and networking platform for data practitioners in the Nordics, Europe and Middle East.

This inaugural 2021 online edition of the event goes beyond these regions and extends its reach to the APAC region as well.

With 40+ international speakers presenting across two days, panel discussions and plenty of other learning and networking activities, the 2021 online APAC edition of the 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.

On stage, we are bringing some of the most forward-thinking Data Management practitioners of different positions and responsibilities in the department, from both the private and public sector in the Asia and Pacific region, covering not only the most business critical Data Management challenges but as well the latest methodologies, strategies and tools used by organizations to address those challenges. The program is divided in two days, each day having two stages and focusing on a specific topic.

Summit Features

Pre-Event Networking Sessions

We start the event with a 100 min pre-event platform introduction and networking roundtables for all participants across the region. The idea is to get delegates and partners acquainted with each other as well to start the event with challenge description, innovation and collaboration. All roundtables are in a duration of 45 min and limited to 10 participants each.

Keynotes & Case Study Presentations

Spread over the two days, the delegates will have the opportunity to listen to practical presentations delivered by some of the most innovative companies in the area. All presentations are 30 minutes long and in English. The presentations are either pre-recorded or live, streamed directly through the event app Agorify.

Interactive Panels

Spread over the two days, the delegates will have the opportunity to take part of several interactive panels composed by practitioners and experts. The panels will cover several important topics covering everything from strategy to people, processes, and technology. The panellists invited are experts and practitioners in the area representing companies in the APAC region and beyond. All panels are in duration of 40 minutes and in English.

Technology in Practice (TIP) Sessions

At this year’s summit we are bringing some of the leading technology and service providers in the area, some of them presenting their tools and services for the first time on the APAC market. To make it more transparent and relevant for you, the demos presented during the summit will be listed as sessions in the agenda and on the event webpage.

Networking Activities

During the networking breaks, through the event platform, all participants will have the opportunity to explore the attendee list, connect with each other, book meetings, have one-to-one meetings and make meaningful connections.

Virtual Exhibitors Stands/Pages

Delegates attending the summit have the opportunity to visit virtual Exhibition Pages. Same as onsite format, the purpose of the exhibitor pages is for the delegates to get acquainted with the exhibitors, their products and services as well the sessions they are involved in during the event. In the virtual program, the delegate will be able to find Meet the exhibitors feature listed in the Agenda schedule and click on it to come to the Meet the exhibitor session page. In this page, the delegate will be welcomed with a short instructional video explaining where to find the Exhibitors, explore what they do, view external links, see who from the exhibitor company is represented at the summit, and how to contact them.

Data governance foundation to enable proper data use: Interview with Ole Busk Poulsen
What I’ve learnt from cloudifying Electrolux: Interview with Kaveh Djavaherian

The first tenet for successful cloud implementation is respecting the organization’s history, culture, way of working and people. Of course, robust cloud architecture that offers uninterrupted access to data and applications is a must, but your efforts will be in vain if you don’t have the support of the right people and network of allies. These are some of the crucial learnings Kaveh Djavaherian, Head of Global Cloud & Hosting at Electrolux, underlined from his ample experience with executing cloud strategies and infrastructure management. Kaveh Djavaherian revealed his valuable insights gained through leading cloud implementation in Electrolux and other organizations. More to come during his Data 2030 Summit presentation in February.

Data 2030 Summit DataOps talks you can’t miss
What is Data Mesh? And should you mesh it up too?

Data Mesh is one of the hottest topics in data analytics at the moment. It has found its way into the trends that are predicted to disrupt and dominate the data market in 2021.

But what exactly is Data Mesh and why more and more companies are looking to implement the latest trend in the data industry?

In the age of data as a first-class citizen, every enterprise strives to be data-driven, pouring hefty investments into data platforms and enablers. However, the ever-growing data demands are no match for the traditional data warehouse or data lake with limited real-time streaming capabilities.

Data and analytics maturity in the energy industry: Interview with Mikko Muurinen
Data management trends that experts forecast for 2021 and beyond

The past tumultuous year saw many organisations caught up in a cloud frenzy, heavily investing in data lakes and data warehouses to get the most out of their precious data in a more flexible, scalable and efficient way. But despite the investments, we saw the data management was still a big challenge for companies in 2020. The majority of them still struggled with legacy systems, lack of domain-specific skills, lack of clearly defined data governance policies and poor data quality, preventing them from thriving in their data and AI innovations. It was clear that the new circumstances required enterprises to review their data management strategies and design platforms to support their AI-driven ambitions.

Why roundtable events give you more bang for your buck
Ingrain fact-based decision making into your company DNA: Interview with Laila Kakar

Data-driven or fact-based decisions have a great many possibilities and benefits to transform the business. But the most important step is to turn the insights into actions, because facts without action demonstrate the mechanism of memory, but not that of understanding, explains Laila Kakar, Senior Manager at MTN (GSSC).
We’ll hear Laila Kakar at the Data 2030 Summit in her session on How to measure the unmeasurable – translating SMART data into insights, where she’ll tell you more about how to start making fact-based decisions and how machine learning can support you in your decisions.
