“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.” — Sherlock Holmes.

Efficient decision-making is the backbone of enterprise growth. Human expertise and intuition drove decisions in the last few decades. Companies can no more afford to depend on manual decision-making processes owing to the complexity of the business landscape and the need for accelerated growth in revenues. Hence data drives the decision-making in most organizations today.

We as consumers also have adopted machines to make data for our everyday activities - be it reaching a place, choosing which movies to watch, or selecting the best product to buy. Machines provide us limited choices and we are just curators of those choices. It is important that organizations enable and govern the machines to make the right set of decisions for the users as well as for themselves.

In this webinar, we will discuss the phases of data-driven decisions, where we stand today and some of the factors that influence the success of data-driven decision making in organizations.
