Data Leadership Dinner, April 2019

On the evening of 30th April, Spectrum, Silverpeak, the technology investment bank, and Wiggin, the technology and media law firm, co-hosted a Data Leadership Dinner.

We brought together 16 senior executives and board members for a ‘Chatham House rule’ discussion on building competitive advantage in data-rich businesses, during a private dinner in Central London.

The key points of debate and discussion were:

  • Are all businesses becoming data businesses?
  • Can legacy businesses successfully re-engineer and transform, to become data businesses?
  • Are businesses sufficiently architected – in order to utilise all the data insight tools available?
  • Are companies ready for deep data insight?
  • How much value does AI add to data?
  • Key difference between businesses that use data to enable their business, and those that sell data (i.e. data is their core business)
  • What do customers really value, and how do you use data to deliver that need?
  • Reaching nirvana – when customers can’t do business without the data you provide
  • Certain data-sets are more valuable in conjunction with other data-sets, i.e. data can be shared profitably and productively via APIs
