Hong Kong, February 10, 2017 / - The Big Data & Analytics Innovation Summit, hosted by Innovation Enterprise, is returning to Hong Kong on April 26 & 27, at the InterContinental Grand Stanford Hotel. The summit has been successfully hosted in Hong Kong for 4 consecutive years, attracted over 500 attendees. This year’s edition will gather together over 150 senior data executives across different industries to discuss strategies that leverage data in new ways for new outcomes.

Big data is a business practice that has only been in the public eye for a few years, but in many companies, it is not built to last for years. This is the opinion of Ritesh Sarda, CIO at Sun Life Financial 'The sheer volume, velocity, and variety of data has evolved exponentially over time and it is simply not sustainable to institutionalize a data model which is built to last for years.’

At the summit, Ritesh will be discussing 'Client Focused Digital Assets Powered by Data Analytics.’ One of the keys to his presentation is that anything created today, will not be relevant in only a few years and only through looking at future technologies can companies prepare.

The is something that Ritesh is acutely aware of, particularly in the context of improving client experiences. 'Developing the capability to interact with clients in a way that anticipates their needs takes some time to achieve. Robotics and artificial intelligence is a game changer and requires even more complex data transformations with natural language algorithms and machine learning capability.’

Broader topics to be covered at the summit include:

– Visualising Big Data in Financial Markets – Executive Director, Morgan Stanley

– Achieving Operational Excellence through Data Analytics – COO, Lazada

– The Big Data Road-Map for Airlines, Head of BICC – Cathay Pacific

– Smart Life Insurance Products Using Big Data & Analytics – AVP, Digital Engineering, Manulife & many more

The summit will be co-located with the Digital Marketing & Strategy Innovation Summit and the CFO Rising Summit, where attendees can build partnerships and extend their networks across functions.
