Data quality is the foundation for evidence based decision making

Dr Lisa Chen, Chief Analytics Officer, Harmonic Analytics

Business leaders, managers and operational staff are making significant decisions based on information that is often supported by poor quality underlying data.  Increasingly, attention is focused on establishing robust metrics to enable organisations to understand the quality of their data in order to derive trusted insights.

Data quality is the foundation for evidence based decision making. This presentation will outline how to measure your data quality and identify where anomalies exist, to help determine the usefulness of your data, how to improve it and, as it improves, the increased potential for advanced analytics.


Deploying analytics into interactions with customers improves outcomes.

Matt Spencer, Chief Analytics Officer, Ministry of Social Development

Deploying analytics into interactions with customers improves outcomes.  There are numerous use cases for this approach, but a pattern has emerged: “next best offer” type services can improve front line effectiveness – especially useful when staff or customers have information overload.  This talk will outline an analytics as a service approach to augmented decision making at the front line.
