Big Data means big value. The potential of data-driven innovation, both economic and social, continues to grow alongside development and improvement of the technology for data analysis. At the Big Data & Analytics conference, Prof. Dr. Pieter Ballon will guide us through the topic of data driven innovation in a competitive marketplace, using smart cities as business case: No data, no smart cities. Thankfully technology is mature enough to process all information needed. Next to this session we also have Bart Vandereijt from Carrefour talking about Hyper personalization in offers and targeting and the link with data. Bart is in charge of the 360 customer data and analytical marketing scope at Carrefour Belgium. From defining the customer data and information strategy, to the development, generation, effective exploitation, monetization and governance of the loyalty program data.
