3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Move to the Future Using Analytics for SME to Grow and CompeteHow do we manage, interpret, collaborate all the data? In general, oceans and agriculture are old industries, doing things in old ways. The digitization of business in general is disrupting the old ways. Even though the old industries are collecting and in some cases using the data, they are still thinking in the old ways. For example, they think they need to hire additional people to use data analytics to grow their business when they will actually need fewer people…with different skills.
