Running a Successful Business with Big Data: What Every CEO Should Know

CEO Roundtable Meeting

Amsterdam, September 2013

CEOs are constantly challenged with growing and retaining customers, driving profitability, ensuring stable growth, and managing and reducing risk. People, systems and devices are connecting and communicating more than ever, creating vast amounts of data and rapidly changing the ways companies interact with their customers and suppliers.

To overcome these challenges and to adapt to the changing inter-connected business world, CEOs must continually strive to improve business performance. With new and smarter approaches to analytics, CEOs can make sense of big data and resolve today’s challenges with speed and efficiency. By incorporating smarter analytics into business strategy CEOs can accelerate the path towards superior business performance by being able to listen and anticipate what customers expect, see profitable opportunities and know how to improve without unnecessary risk or cost.

The meeting will bring together 15 - 20 CEOs to share and gain insights and views with peers on how corporations are anticipating the business environment, shaping the future and running successful businesses with big data.

The welcome address and introduction will be from Harry van Dorenmalen, Chairman IBM Europe & General Manager for The Netherlands and CorporateLeaders. In addition, IBM will provide exclusive insights on how to outperform in a data-rich hyper-connected world and on how some innovative enterprises extract value from uncertain data. The discussion will be rounded off with a champagne reception and an exquisite meal to continue the debate and to network.
