Rendy Sugiarto, Online Insights & Analytics Manager BNZ Digital

Over nearly 5 years at BNZ, Rendy has lead the bank’s online presence from a point where there was very little information about how the website and Internet Banking were being used at all to a point where end-to-end tracking and democratisation of analytics are standard practice and machine learning models are ready to make real-time decisions about customer needs.

Rendy will discuss the challenges of getting hold of data and getting buy in from the executive, with a lot of insight on how to do that successfully, and give an overview of where his work is at, and where it might head next.

Duncan Head, Head of Strategic Analysis Vector

The energy industry is currently undergoing a period of rapid customer-led change and disruption.  New technology is not only offering consumers greater choice, it is also completely reshaping industry paradigms and business models that have existed for a 100 years. Data and analytics are now central to energy businesses that are retooling to support the new customer-led future and to transition existing infrastructure to support things like self-generation, electric vehicles and advanced home energy management systems.
As Head of Strategic Analysis, Duncan is leading the team that is providing the data and analytics for Vector’s network business to help ‘create a new energy future’.
