Nexer & Partner Summit 2023
Harness the POwer of data chaos
– turn data into growth
Welcome to an inspiring day where we, together with our partners, aim to energise you with ways of harnessing your data through strategy, analytics and technology, thereby achieving growth for your company.
Most companies store vast amounts of data. ResearchGate states that US companies in all sectors have at least 100 terabytes of stored data – many of which even have more than one petabyte. This, many times, unstructured data is a virtual goldmine for growth. Yet, according to Microsoft, 60-73 percent of all enterprise data goes unused for analytics. It’s a real shame, according to McKinsey, putting data to work will, for example, enable you to make better and faster decisions and outperform your competitors in sales growth by as much as 85 per cent. It will also help you increase profit and decrease overall costs.
Be inspired and achieve growth
Do you need inspiration on how to succeed in using your data to achieve growth? Then watch the videos from February 8th, where we offered interesting and exciting talks and panel discussions in the morning, led by Susanne Erkenmark, Business Unit Manager, Nexer Worklife.
In the afternoon, there were deep-dive by our many prominent partners. You will find all the details and the agenda below.
USING DATA FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability is a multi-faceted challenge that concerns most aspects of modern human life.
Data and data analysis can be critical enablers for sustainability. You can gain valuable insight, optimise your processes, and ramp up digital transformation and business growth through a Modern Data Platform and cutting-edge AI technology such as computer vision and NLP (Natural Language Processing).
Maybe you need to make more efficient use of buildings and infrastructure, work predictively with your logistics, or manage your product’s life cycle data and environmental impact. Does it sound complex? Don’t worry – we will talk about how in this panel discussion with Anna Enarsson, Marketing Manager Nexer Data Management, David Österlindh, Business Area Manager Nexer Insight, and Jennie Jaurinder, Business Area Manager, Nexer Enterprise Applications.
Do you want to put your data to work to achieve sustainability?
MANAGING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATIONS, DISRUPTION, AND INNOVATION
Each year digital inventions bring new changes to our markets and industries. First, the Internet changed how we did business; then, mobile changed how we interacted with each other. How can you prepare your business for the next disruption? In this interactive talk, Jonas Kjellberg speaks about the disruptors or “game changers” who are remaking the world of business around us. Then he challenges the game changers in the audience to tell him he’s wrong and to contribute to the discussion.
Jonas Kjellberg is Chairman of the Board at Nornorm, Co-Creator of Skype, Author, and Investor
SECURITY IN THE WORLD OF DATA
The current world situation has become less stable over the past 12 months, and we are heading for an unknown and uncertain future with possible risks not seen since World War II. The situation has forced us to alter the way we perceive and work with cybersecurity, adopting a risk-based approach where we make decisions founded on data and data analysis.
Jesper Svegby, Business Area Manager Nexer Cybersecurity gives a talk about this approach, followed by a discussion with Sandra Barouta Elvin, National Security Manager of Microsoft Sweden.
Want help moving towards a more risk base approach to security?
HOW DO YOU USE INTEGRATED COMMUNICATION TO ENERGISE CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES?
Ask your co-workers what they need to do a good job and have paramount work experience. They will likely answer easy access to correct information and means to communicate with co-workers and management. Ask your customers what they need to be satisfied; they will probably answer relevant and guiding information available at the right time – making them feel acknowledged. You get peace of mind, and they will become more loyal to you. A simple way to achieve this is by implementing a digitalised proactive customer service, which lets you own the customer dialogue up until delivery to the customer; data that is too precious to give away.
Hanna Karppi, Head of Digital Worklife, and Fredrik Axell, Business Area Manager, shares their insights.
Do you want to use data more to increase customer or employee engagement?
