Many emerging technologies are set to impact every aspect of business. But there is considerable work to be done to create a comprehensive strategy and architecture to be able to turn the stored data into valuable business asset through scalable and flexible Cloud and with AI solutions. But this can be a daunting task as every enterprise will have to deal with the innumerable technologies, stakeholders as well as prioritize their efforts in making the changes.
This conference will help you:
We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and their vision in the field of Enterprise Data, AI and Cloud. Please let us know too if you would like to participate in the panel sessions only.
We understand that successful projects are written up as “White Papers”. Please share these with us. But projects that did not achieve their targets – “Black Papers” – are of interest to us too. They can be a very important topics of discussion / panels that you can present. Talk to us about both, we welcome your input.
We are also planning short “how to do” sessions or full day workshops to run simultaneously as pre or post conference events.
Please complete the speaker’s response form and submit a proposal to present at this event.

Cognitive Engineering – Artificial Intelligence as a Service (AIaaS)
Jonathon Wright, Chief Technology Officer, Digital Assured
In the digital reality, technology is no longer just the enabler and it is what it is to be human, the ability to continuously learn and evolve. The approaches and techniques that worked yesterday, may no longer be the optimum approach for the future. Historically, human processes have been based on linear, sequential activities highly suitable to be replaced by cognitive engineering practices such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). However, A.I. is no longer mimicking human behaviours, but far surpassing our greatest expectations.
Organisations are investing in adopting cognitive services, these intelligent algorithms to understand and interpret your business needs through natural languages are help drive omni-channel delivery that are extremely responsive to customer sentiment. Blurring the boundaries of Enterprise AI adoption with Chaos Engineering resilient in the face of unpredictable failure modes, whilst still being able to process huge amounts of unstructured data, embarking onto this third wave of Artificial Intelligence as a Services (AIaaS).

Interactive Round Table discussions are part of the programme where all participants can join in, shape their learning, share their own experiences, and hear fresh ideas. This session is for 45 minutes. The speaker at each table will have a set theme and delegates join any table that they are interested in. They are given all the topics with their joining instructions and again at the time of registration and so make their choice on the topics that they want to attend. This is a popular feature at our conferences and as it a discussion group, no presentation slides are necessary. Please submit a topic if you would like to chair a discussion on a topic related to AI, Enterprise Data and Cloud.
