The state of data and analytics

30 January 2024, America and Europe 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm GMT

Behind transformative breakthroughs powered by generative AI, advanced analytics, and real-time personalization, is the quiet reliance on trusted data. In fact, 92% of analytics and IT decision makers say the need for trustworthy data is higher than ever.

Advances in AI are fast-moving, putting pressure on data management teams to supply algorithms with sufficient and high-quality data, yet business leaders cite security threats as the top barrier to successful data management. So, how can business, IT, and analytics leaders harness data to fuel these opportunities and overcome roadblocks that are derailing data-driven strategies?

Join Tableau's Data Leadership Collaborative and a select group of your peers as we explore the obstacles you are facing and tactics you can leverage to maximize the value of your data.
