12.00-13.00 Lunch break

13.00-13.30 Data management

It’s time to focus on your company’s most important intangible asset: data. Data is too valuable to be left for the IT department alone. Because data knows no boundaries or constraints of the organization, neither internal nor external, a holistic, data supply chain-wide approach to managing it is needed. In the studio, Tommi Vihervaara, a digital solution development professional, co-host of the Datapääoma blog and podcast, and the author of a book to be published this year, discussing with our chief business officer Janne Anttila.
