Leading Big Data Ecosystem Summmit in Central Europe. Digitalisation requires to invest in technologies collecting, storing, integrating, analyzing and visualizing data. The strong dynamics of this current transformation bears the risk of false decisions. Big Data Ecosystem Strategy Dialog offers strategic decision support

At Big Data Technology & Infrastructure Dialog top experts provide executive decision support on Big Data technology investments in the fields of collection, storage, integration, analysis and output. What fits with legacy, strategy and business models? Which solutions work in the long run? Make or buy? What makes sense economically? What risks need to be considered? These and many more questions will be answered. What is sustainable? Decisions on technology investments need to be analyzed strategically and create value for many years to come. This summit will show how this can work. Digitization of most business models is a reality today. It creates opportunities as well as threats for established companies that want to keep pace and hunt others rather than being hunted. The so-far digitization journey has been painful for many. Decisions, some made years ago, in fields like ERP, CRM. MES and other areas, make the upcoming development complex. Even today many internal sources of data form a chaotic data zoo that needs to be integrated to make digital business models work. In the age of Big Data this zoo is enriched by endless terabytes of external data, quite often in again new and incompatible formats. Marketeers of new Big Data solutions tend to play down the compatibility problem and promise actionable data of whatsoever origin in an integrated Big Data architecture. This promises should not be trusted, of course. The effort to integrate existing data and systems into a new Big Data architecture will be complex and expensive, if companies aim for a corporate data strategy rather than for an isolated test. The second problem points to the future: How can companies create a new data architecture and infrastructure that is open and flexible enough for future developments to be integrated? Having in mind the pain of the past companies want to avoid a lack of flexibility and interoperability in the future, as well as an unsound dependence on very few strategic suppliers.
