Keynote Address

It has been over half a decade since the McKinsey Global Institute published its first Big Data research report, and now companies are making headlines daily about how they are capturing, analyzing, and interpreting data, as they seek out competitive advantage, or even to disrupt and reinvent entire industries. And yet, with so many organizations focused on these topics, questions remain: To what extent has the full potential of data and analytics already been captured and what has to happen for organizations to reach their full potential? How will industries be reinvented leveraging data and analytics capabilities? Where are the areas of greatest potential for the next horizon of machine learning techniques? Dr. Michael Chui, a partner at the McKinsey Global Institute, will share findings from on-going joint research between MGI and McKinsey Analytics, that aims to answer these and other key questions about the role of advanced analytics in the evolution of our working world, and how leaders should prepare.
