Kingdom Big Data Analytics Summit

Emerging markets and developing economies are facing up to a more challenging business environment than ever before. In order to ensure economic growth and a broad-based distribution of gains – something that is widely acknowledged to be a critical aspect of long-term sustainability – they must adjust their developmental models accordingly.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) continues to have a far-reaching impact on social and economic development, extending far beyond productivity enhancement. ICT now has a far more all-encompassing effect – improving access to services, enhancing connectivity and communication channels, and creating numerous opportunities for employment.

The nations within the GCC lay at the dawn of a new era in innovation and technology. This era will drive the move towards a society and an economy that has productivity, human happiness, public service delivery and customer satisfaction at the heart of its international appeal and sustainability.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a regional leader in recognising the power of the Internet of Things, Big Data, Data Science and Open Data. Many of the Kingdom’s forward thinking government ministries and entities, as well as public and private sector organisations have moved to implement Big Data methodology as a necessary component of operational advancement.

The Value of Big Data

A number of examples of the widespread and positive impact Big Data has had on organisations across the world, however there are also those that have struggled – and in many cases failed - to utilise Big Data and harness its power in order to gain value from their investment.

In its practical use, if implemented and integrated properly, Big Data provides the following key advantages:

  • Improved efficiency and quality
  • Customer trend analysis
  • Customer dialogue
  • Improved and faster decision making processes
  • New revenue streams (products & services)
  • Performance risk analysis
  • Reduction in operational costs
  • Data security

The key for organisations within the region as we head into the Big Data era, is to understand the answers to the following key questions:

  • Does Big Data create wealth within your industry?
  • Do Big Data analytics only assist large corporations, or are they also of value to small and medium-sized enterprises?
  • What is the impact of Big Data analytics on a nation’s or organisation’s financial growth prospects?
  • Does Big Data really add value to a company’s bottom line?
  • What key components must you have in place before embarking upon a Big Data project?
  • How can you measure the ROI of Big Data?
  • How do you identify your Big Data business objectives and ensure you have a team capable of delivering?
  • What aspects of Big Data can you access and leverage on now?
  • What are the latest tools and techniques utilisable in the Big Data industry?
  • How can you drive the top-line revenue impact on your business?

These are just an example of the types of questions that will be answered at the Peer Review Kingdom Big Data & Analytics Summit.

We will also cover individual industries and lines of business, and the way in which they all may benefit from Big Data implementation.
