IT Pro Live: Data driven digital transformation

What is data and why is it so important? Data expert Caroline Carruthers will use her experience both as a global data consultant and as a former Chief Data Officer to explain why organisations need to start taking data strategies seriously. Drawing on the Carruthers and Jackson model, used by public, private and charity sector bodies, Caroline will give the audience insights into how different elements of an organisation can work together to tackle barriers and gain more from a data strategy.
