Topics and Speakers

Key Note: ESG sustainability reporting: environment, social responsibility and corporate governance in corporate planning

"In recent years, awareness of sustainable and responsible business practices has grown steadily. One approach that is becoming increasingly important is the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into corporate decision-making processes. ESG considerations are increasingly influencing investment decisions as investors recognize that sustainable and socially responsible companies are better able to manage risk and create long-term value. Asset managers and institutional investors are integrating ESG analysis into their investment strategies to identify companies with superior ESG performance. ESG is becoming an increasingly important topic. This is because, due to stricter regulations, many smaller companies in Germany and the EU will also have to face the challenge of ESG reporting requirements in the future. They will then have to measure, evaluate and disclose their performance in terms of sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR). This has led to the emergence of ESG rating agencies and indices that rate and rank companies based on their ESG practices."

Dr. Rolf Gegenmantel, Chief Product Officer & Chief Marketing Officer, Jedox

Why the writeback function delivers outstanding results in data analysis (in English)

"An important function that exists in such analysis tools is the so-called writeback function. This feature allows users to write data directly back into the analytics tool to make updates, adjustments or additions, it allows users to update data in real time. This is particularly useful when data is constantly changing or new data is added. With the writeback function, users can edit and adjust data in the analysis tools without having to access external applications or databases. The Writeback function also facilitates collaboration and workflow within a team or organization. Multiple users can edit, comment and update data in real time, creating a common understanding and smooth collaboration. Errors can also be identified quickly and corrected immediately without having to resort to external tools or manual processes. And: with the writeback function, users can run hypothetical scenarios or "what-if" analyses. They can change variables, add data points or enter alternative data to explore the impact on the results. This feature opens up new possibilities for decision making and planning. TRUECHART is the market-leading analysis tool with writeback function for Qlik and Power BI."

Geneve Schwan, Chief Product Officer TRUECHART

Seamless data analysis with Talend

"Data has become one of the most valuable resources of companies: those who use their data effectively have a clear competitive advantage. We discuss various methods of data analysis, including statistical analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence. In addition, we show how Talend helps to perform these analyses seamlessly and gain valuable insights from the data. And the topic of data quality is also a big one, as data quality has become a critical factor in the success of any business. Talend offers powerful tools and solutions to ensure that data is accurate, consistent and trustworthy. We will show how Talend can identify-, clean- and prevent data quality issues."

Steffen Bischoff, Talend, Senior Manager, Solutions Engineering for EMEA Central and Eastern Europe

Internet of Things - room sensors

"The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a network of physical devices, sensors, actuators and other objects that are connected to each other and can exchange data. Room sensor technology in the IoT involves the use of sensors to detect and monitor various aspects of an environment. These sensors can measure temperature, humidity, light, sound levels, movement and much more. By continuously collecting data, they allow us to get a comprehensive picture of the conditions and events in a room or environment. In smart homes, for example, these sensors can help to improve energy efficiency by automatically adjusting the heating or air conditioning based on the temperature and humidity levels detected. In offices and other work environments, sensors can be used to monitor room occupancy and optimize space utilization. In hospitals, sensors can be used to monitor air quality and minimize the risk of infection. The collected data can be analyzed in various ways to generate insights and added value. By applying algorithms and machine learning, patterns and trends can be identified, allowing predictions to be made and reactive measures to be taken."

Stop Excel Around! High-end data management at Pernod-Ricard

"Pernod Ricard, one of the world's leading companies in the beverage industry, has achieved great success in HR controlling with the help of the Jedox platform. The most important goal was to centralize the data: Pernod Ricard had a major challenge in collecting and consolidating HR data from different countries and departments. The Jedox platform enabled the company to collect all relevant HR data in one central location. This resulted in improved data integrity, consistent reporting and a unified database for HR controlling. Before the introduction of Jedox, there were many manual HR processes that were managed in Excel and were time-consuming. With Jedox, the company was able to automate many of these processes, resulting in significant time and resource savings. For example, reports, dashboards and analyses could be created with just a few clicks instead of manual data compilation and formatting. Now ad hoc analyses and simulations were also possible: Jedox also enabled Pernod Ricard to perform ad hoc analyses and simulations to test different scenarios and make informed decisions. For example, the company was able to analyze the impact of personnel measures, such as new hires and promotions, on costs and performance. By integrating Jedox into its existing IT infrastructure, Pernod Ricard was able to improve its HR controlling capabilities without completely replacing its existing systems."

Big Data, Machine Learning and Salary Forecasting

Big Data can come from a variety of sources, such as social media, transactions, sensors and much more. Big Data offers immense opportunities to gain valuable insights and make informed decisions. In conjunction with Big Data, Machine Learning has become a powerful tool. Machine learning refers to the ability of computers to learn algorithms and generate predictions or patterns based on large amounts of data. The combination of Big Data and Machine Learning has opened the door for Predictive Analytics. Predictive analytics refers to the use of data analysis and statistical models to predict future events or outcomes. For example, companies can collect and analyze large amounts of salary data. This can take into account various factors that influence salaries, such as work experience, educational qualifications, location and industry. By using machine learning, complex models can be developed that take all these factors into account and can provide more accurate salary estimates."

How Customer Centricity is measured with the NPS

"Customer Centricity is a strategic approach where companies put the customer at the center of their business activities. It is about understanding customer needs and expectations, improving their experience and offering products or services that meet their requirements. Companies can thus achieve differentiated positioning. Customer Centricity also involves actively listening to and incorporating customer feedback. To this end, we use the Net Promoter Score NPS, which provides measurable customer feedback in response to the question: would you recommend us to your best friend? By responding to and using customer feedback to continuously improve their products, services and processes, companies can drive innovation. Customers become valuable sources of ideas and suggestions, leading to a better customer experience and increased competitiveness. Customer Centricity is our philosophy and the foundation of our value framework, NPS our measurement method."
