November 4 - AmCham Pannel Discussion on Data Management - outputs

AmCham IT committee organized a Pannel discussion on Data Management/Data mining. Pannelists were:

Tomáš Dufek/ Managing Partner at Smart Marketing Solutions, Filip Jánsky / Head of Reporting Systems & Business Intelligence – CME, Petr Ludvík / CFO Czech and Slovakia at Tarsago (Reader´s Digest), Miloslav Martinek/CIO at J&T Bank, Radek Šimek / Reporting & Analyses Manager at O2.

Petr Viktora of Deloitte moderated our discussion and also had a brief introduction on How important Data mining/Data management issues for companies are.

 

Petr Viktora said: „ In the last year, we have been observing growing interest in the data management issue.
Banks, insurance companies, telecommunication operators and marketing agencies are beginning to deal with this topic. Discovering the potential hidden in one´s own data, which had been gathered in internal information systems for many years, are key to the opening of the topic of data management. Potentially, additional data are being added into these inputs – either form the system of different owners or open sources.

In the Czech Republic, the accession of topics such as data quality, data ownership, management of data processes and data architecture has been rather slow and delayed compared to the outside world. Considerably, nowadays certain companies are engaged even more intensively. The factor that tends to determine success is an idea shift that brings out data processing from the world of information systems into the space of development of commercial activities, space of searching for innovative motives and potential new business opportunities.

We are expecting exponential growth of the volume of data generated not only by usual transactional systems but particularly as a mechanically generated outputs. So the introduction of instruction and evaluation of the quality of data is a condition necessary for survival. “
