• Building a better world with data, information and digital technology



    In the new digital age, data has often been called the new oil. It is the 21st Century energy that empowers enterprises, governments, societies and consumer behaviour.


    When harnessed and managed wisely and creatively, data has the potential to create a utopia for business, government and society, resolving fundamental problems and challenges, enabling greater evidence-­based decision making and intelligent operations. It can drive efficiencies, build competitive or operational advantage, reduce costs and minimise risk. It can also empower innovative new products, services and business models, creating better ways of working and engaging with customers, partners and stakeholders.


    But, if managed poorly, governed carelessly and wielded unwisely, it can create dystopian outcomes for business, government and society. Compliance failure, wasted opportunities, cost­ blowouts, failed strategies and damage to the bottom­ line. It can undermine trust in institutions, destroy business reputations, restrict growth, and obliterate value.


    DATATOPIA Congress & Expo 2017 has been created as a unique forum for exploring the alternative potentialities of data utopia and data dystopia.


    Drawing on the experience, knowledge and insights of real world practitioners, case


    With 4 x co-­located, thematically aligned summits, 50+ expert global and local presenters, 350+ attendees, innovators, experts, entrepreneurs, analysts and change­ makers from around the world, 30+ solution providers and one massive solution expo, this is shaping up as the largest, most exciting, inspiring and informative data event in the APAC region in 2017.


    Through a truly innovative and entirely new interactive peer­-to­-peer format, DATATOPIA 2017 Congress & Expo will offer two mind­ expanding days of visionary thought-­leadership insights, eye­ opening keynote presentations, ground­-breaking best practice case studies, interactive think­-tanks, peer­-to­-peer round table discussions, challenging debates, solution showcases, deep dive breakouts, idea "pitchfests", solution hack­-a-­thons, innovation explorations and inspirational presentations designed to engage, illuminate and educate all who take part.


    A separately bookable third day of interactive practical workshops will also allow attendees to delve deeper and walk away with real world knowledge and practical skills to help their organisations create their own “datatopia”!

    Harnessing next generation BI & analytics to thrive in an age of digital disruption

    Business Intelligence is back with a vengeance!

    After all the big data hype of recent years, companies are again refocusing on building their strategic and operational enterprise BI capability. But much has changed in recent years in the BI & analytics space, with a number of game­ changing solutions from the traditional market leaders, as well as from fast­-rising and disruptive challenger companies. For technology and business leaders, the challenge of navigating a coherent path through the new BI and analytics landscape is more difficult than ever. Many of the principles remain the same, but there are many new paths, innovations and best practices available for creating a truly intelligent business in the digital era.


    The Business Intelligence & Analytics Leaders Summit, will provide a deep exploration of the latest developments, real world innovations and ground­breaking case studies, thought­-leadership and best­-of-­breed next­-generation tools, technologies and innovations for creating the truly intelligent digital enterprise.


    Participants will find out how to get ahead of the field and discover how they can harness the power of next generation business analytics, predictive analytics, data visualisation, dashboards, mobile BI, collaborative BI, data warehousing, agile BI, big data analytics, R, cloud-­based BI, SAAS BI, self­-service BI, in­-memory analytics and real­time analytics.

    Mastering data governance to minimise risk, empower innovation and ensure compliance

    The region's largest, longest running and most critically acclaimed data summit!

    Now in its 12th year, the MDM & Data Governance Summit Asia Pacific, is the leading event in the region focused on data governance, master data management, data quality and reference data, attracting more than 3500 attendees since its inception in 2006. Interest in data governance continues to grow as companies struggle to implement the technical and human systems and procedures that ensure their data and information assets are properly managed, accurate, reliable and fit for purpose.


    Data governance and MDM are fundamental enablers of BI and analytics, IoT, supply chain performance, regulatory compliance, privacy management, and overall fit­-for­-purpose information management. Business critical tools and best practices for preventing data dystopia.


    This year’s summit will explore the latest innovations in data governance best practices, organisational structures and best-­of­-breed tools for multi­ domain MDM for products, customers, services, supply chain and reference data, MDM and governance in the cloud, mobile master data management, social data governance, data quality, RDM, CDM, and data integration.

    Optimising your data infrastructure for peak performance, efficiency and scalability

    Discover how to get the most from your data infrastructure ​investments

    The human, architectural and infrastructure foundations underpinning enterprise information and data management have undergone radical change in recent years. The continued evolution of cloud platform offerings, and the emergence of hyper-­convergence, data lakes, agile warehousing, collaborative infrastructures, virtualisation, machine learning platforms, IoT and multi­-vendor "hybridised" infrastructures have made CIO’s & CTO's jobs more challenging than ever. The strategic potential is enormous, but navigating a coherent path through this confusing landscape is fundamental for success.


    When coupled with changing approaches to multi­-sourcing, automation and data storage, server technology innovation, identity access and security, the challenge of optimising this mix can be become overwhelming. This summit will focus on the high­-level strategies, innovations and best practices for ensuring optimisation, efficiency and performance of data and information infrastructure, providing CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and IT Leaders with invaluable insights needed to drive efficiency, effectiveness, scalability and performance.

    Wielding data, information and digital technology for positive social impact

    How can data and digital technology be used to make the world a better place?

    There is a growing realisation and deep interest in how innovative use of data, technology and human capital can be harnessed to solve some of the most pressing and difficult problems at the core of society.


    This Summit, the first of its kind in Australia, will look at how technology and data­-driven problem solving can be leveraged for social impact. Whether it be outcomes for education, health, the environment, city resilience, social cohesion or civil society - data and technology are increasingly central to making the world a better place.


    Concepts like citizen science, Blockchain, smart cities, smart applications, eHealth and data­-enabled urban resilience are amongst the innovations at the forefront of this trend. The Data & Tech for Impact Summit will outline ways that data and technology are working to create a more utopian world. It will bring together and connect data scientists, from both academia and industry, with business, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, public sector and non­profit partners to share stories of inspiration, smart ideas, ground­breaking innovations and world-­changing insights that can radically impact social outcomes and help to create a better world.



    Two mind­ expanding days of visionary thought-­leadership insights, eye­ opening keynote presentations, ground­-breaking best practice case studies, interactive think­-tanks, peer­-to­-peer round table discussions, challenging debates, solution showcases, deep dive breakouts, idea "pitchfests", solution hack­-a-­thons, innovation explorations and inspirational presentations designed to engage, illuminate and educate all who take part.
