Over three years into the role and Quantium IT director, Craig Taylor, says he hasn’t got comfortable - and that’s a good thing considering the state of flux and constant change in the IT industry. In particular, the data science and AI realm that Taylor lives and breathes.
With the rise of the front-line worker and distributed workplaces, many organisations are seeing the benefits of providing a cloud-ready environment. No doubt, employees expect access to information and services without the barriers of legacy tools. Certainly, cloud enabled employees have come to expect insights, speed and collaboration as part of their everyday. Therefore, many CIOs are starting to recognise the ‘power of cloud enablement’ of the front-line worker in order to provide greater collaboration and engagement, process efficiencies, and insights for better decision-making. A group of CIOs and tech leaders joined CIO Australia and Google for an exclusive roundtable luncheon that discussed how companies can embrace the move to a cloud-enabled workforce - and not leave behind a large and most influential workforce.
Many CIOs have rolled out business intelligence and data analytics tools across the organisation and these solutions may be providing some insights into the business. But what’s less likely is that they safely rely on the accuracy and relevance of data that's needed to gain much deeper insights which will support core business transformation activities. A group of IT leaders gathered in Sydney for the CIO and Information Builders Roundtable lunch at Rockpool to discuss the journey towards advanced data analytics.
