Big data is a hot topic these days among not only technologists but also business leaders in the West and the East. Almost all industries and all professions including supply chain and industry are being or will be soon disrupted by big data. Internet-savvy companies like Google and Alibaba, big data start-ups like Zest Finance and Rong 360, traditional companies like GE and Haier, financial services institutions like Citibank and Ping An, are all making use of big data to create their business models to disrupt the rules of our games, win the heart of our customers, innovate new products and services, and make faster and better decisions at right time.
What is big data exactly? Why is it getting our attention these days? Big data is not just a new technology or a system. It is about business transformation and monetization opportunities. Big data promises to transform an organisation from a retrospective, batch, data constrained, monitor the business environment into a predictive, real-time, data hungry, and optimise the business environment. In this session, participants are going to learn the disruptive power of big data, critical success factors of making it happen, and its implications to supply chain industry.
Tif Tam, the representative of organizer, has expressed her thankfulness for Dr. Toa’s sharing in the seminar. It was indeed a rewarding and enjoyable evening, the topic had attracted a great deal of interest to those participants who had attended.
