Description:

Moore’s law tells us that computer power doubles every eighteen months and have been doing so since World War II. Data is even growing faster! For the last thirty years, the volume of generated data has been doubling every twelve months and will reach 175 zettabytes by 2025. In case you ask, a zettabyte equals 1021 bytes, that is a one billion trillion, the estimated number of stars in our universe!
All our software, internet interactions, and connected devices are at the source of this data creation. However, are we capturing, cleansing, and leveraging these data? Most companies do not! Those who do enjoy faster growth, increased resilience and improved bottom line. In this workshop, we will look at your company data strategy and how to move from little to no data to a fully data-driven organization.

Outline:
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

• Define a high-level data strategy;
• Identify the various data sources;
• Structure their data team;
• Put in place the right data governance.

Description:
Over 10 years ago, the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto published the white paper entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”, revisiting previous works about cryptographically secured chain of blocks. Bitcoin was the first ever implemented public blockchain and opened the path to a vast new way to store and process transactions and data over public and private network.

But blockchain is not Bitcoin and Bitcoin is not blockchain. Bitcoin uses Blockchain technology concepts that have deeply evolved since 2008, joining the cloud perfect storm, with low cost storage, high compute power and ubiquitous network access. Why today every company needs to understand and consider blockchain for some of their business applications? This is what we are going to understand in this workshop.

Outline:

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

• Provide a clear definition of what a blockchain is;
• Understand when blockchain matters and when it does NOT;
• Pick the best platform depending on their use case.
