Harnessing big data in the retail sector has enormous potential. As retail organizations capture more data on everything along the supply chain, they can make more accurate and precise decisions to boost business performance. The prevalent use of the web, mobile, social media and more recent development of the Internet of Things is expected to fuel exploding growth in data volume.
Advanced analytics tools may help examine the large volume of data sets to uncover hidden patterns and reveal the correlations. But how to unlock value from data by making information more transparent and usable is a big challenge. This seminar aims to explore the opportunities and challenges on how to put the right technology in place so as to capture the full potential of big data analytics. We are delighted to have speakers from Cisco, Gfk, IBM and CUHK to share with us their experiences and insights in related areas.
