Unlocking the power of corporate data

18-20 October 2021 | The Grace, Sydney

The global big data and business analytics market is expected to grow to US $274 billion in 2022 – marking a massive investment in the storage, use, sharing, and manipulation, and management of corporate data. Up to 90% of the world’s data was generated in just the last two years. Every two years, the volume of this data will double in size globally. 


Every two years, the volume of this data will double in size globally. For data management professionals, the challenge is to maximise the use of data that is growing at a massive rate. This growth is marked by digital storage, the internet of things, mobile devices, cloud platforms, or data residing at the edge of network infrastructure.

Akolade’s 2nd Annual Australian Data Summit 2021 is curated for data management professionals seeking practical, innovative, and cost-effective solutions to unlock the power of corporate data. The agenda showcases leading case studies that spotlight data management solutions, while enabling a business to maintain its competitive edge, engage with customers, and forecast trends to stay ahead of the curve.

Agenda coming soon.

This event will take place via the EventsAir platform, which has the capacity for full networking, live Q&A, 1 to 1 meetings, contact sharing, notes plus much more. The sessions will also be recorded and then be available for four weeks following the event should the attendees miss any sessions and wish to watch in their own time.
