INNOVATIONMAURITIUS.COM is an annual event organised by DoraCrea, Mauritius. In a world where Tech has taken over the way business is done, Robotics are becoming more sophisticated, while A.I. and IoT are driving automation with never-seen-before accuracy, we are at the cusp of a turning point in history - the expansion of the Sharing Economy and the emergence of Data Driven Decision Making process. Digital Transformation in knowledge-based industries is gaining momentum. Big DATA Analytics and Business Innovative Practices are no longer a choice but a business imperative which require a new set of skills, mindset, and ecosystems to support growth, improve efficiency and customer engagement. It is against this backdrop, that the INNOVATIONMAURITIUS.COM conference returns in October this year. Our fourth in the series and organised in collaboration with our flagship Partners, the MCB Consulting and MCB Institute of Finance will showcase the latest development in the Big Data and Advanced Analytics space. From Banking, Insurance, Financial Services, Retail, Health Care, Real Estate, Construction to Hospitality, this conference spans across a wide range of sectors and explores the ways Data, Responsible AI and Sustainable Innovative practices are revolutionising each of them. While the development of AI is creating new opportunities to improve the lives of people around the world, from business to healthcare to education, it is also raising new questions about the best way to build fairness, interpretability, privacy, and security into these systems - thus a meaningful part of this conference is on Responsibility and Sustainability. We are bringing together Industry Innovators, Big Data Scientists and rAI Data Experts to share their knowledge and build a network of valuable connections.
Demystifying Big Data, R-AI and Innovation
Unleashing the potential for Data Driven Strategies
Business today requires Game-Changing Behaviour. The business environment is characterised by the VUCA World - Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity – a combination of factors that exacerbate the effects of digital disruption on an organisation’s operating model. Leveraging on Big Data Analytics and
r-AI business practices will help embracing Innovative ways of leading business organisations.
Re-engineering the Data Decision Making Process
Data-Driven Decision-Making (DDDM) is about making decisions based on Data as opposed to Intuition, observation, or guesswork. The value of data-driven decisions is dependent on the quality of the data and its analysis and interpretation. Every industry today aims to be data-driven by harnessing the wealth of digital insights available and embracing the power of BI, to make informed decisions with confidence that will lead to better business performance.
Is your Organisation ready for Knowledge Workers?
The workplace of the 2020s already looks vastly different. Technology did not just bring new ways of working: it brought a whole new digital economy — new enterprises, new jobs, and new roles. Organisations should now adopt the value of Data Insights and r-AI which brings new levels of Social Connectedness, Mobility, and Collaboration to a world of Virtual Work. Embracing Digital Ecosystem is however inherently ambiguous.
the connected data governance
From a Compliance-Driven to Value-Driven Mindset
Historically, most companies viewed Data Governance as a framework for enforcing Compliance. This command-and-control approach to Governance created barriers between people and data. Today, leaders are realising that the right data governance strategy is about more than compliance. With the adherence of Cyber Security and by making compliant data easier to access, organisations can make faster decisions and drive operational efficiency at scale.
