How CIOs Can Gain Data Superpowers: A Discussion with Cisco and Incorta

SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Incorta, the Direct Data Platform, today announced that CIO Brian Keare (@bkeare) will join Sunjeev Devulapalli (@sunjeev_v), Cisco Product Manager for Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence and Customer Service at Apex Assembly’s CIO National Virtual Summit to discuss “CIOs: Keys to unlock your data analytics superpower to drive your company’s 2021 strategy.” The discussion will take place online at 2:35-3:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, February 25.

In the new work from home era, CIOs have been put to the test. Some found themselves in constant reactive mode as they scrambled to meet unforeseen challenges. Others developed new superpowers and were able to reimagine the value they could bring to the business. By quickly developing capabilities with data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, they were able to gain insights into trends, drive competitive advantage, and even pivot to capitalize on new opportunities and develop new business models. CIOs who harnessed these capabilities successfully ended up being key strategic leaders during the pandemic.

Keare will highlight a few case studies showing how leaders at today’s global enterprises are developing data analytics and ML/AI superpowers. Devulapalli will share the details of how Cisco saved more than 5,000 hours by deploying Incorta’s Direct Data Platform.
