After two decades of economic stagnation, Zimbabwe has fallen behind the rest of the world. The country’s business operations and institutions are structured for a past era, making them uncompetitive today.

Fortunately, digital transformation provides Zimbabwe an easy way to leapfrog to the digital world and new ways of doing business. Big data and analytics lie at the heart of digital transformation and provide unprecedented opportunity for innovation, adding real value and growth. They enable companies to improve operational efficiencies, understand and reach their customers better, mitigate risk and reduce fraud, and develop new revenue streams, thereby driving competitiveness.

While businesses in all industries hold multitudes of data today and the volume of both structured and unstructured data grows each day, many are unable to derive value from these data because their corporate data ecosystems are based on a vision that is 20 years out of date. Data, like oil, doesn’t have any value in its raw form – it has to be refined into business insights to have real value.

This conference presents the foundations, business applications, storage and processing, analysis, and interpretation and use of big data at a strategic level. It gives the actionable steps to take to build modern data ecosystems, execute big data and analytics programs, make data accessible and usable by anyone in an organization and make it truly a corporate asset, and shift toward a data-driven culture for business growth.
