Data-Driven Decisions at the Speed of Business

11/28/2016
Data is the fuel that drives the modern retail enterprise. No aspect of retail has been untouched by the power of data. From the sales floor to the executive suite, the plethora of available data and insights is changing the way retailers are run internally and how they interact with suppliers and consumers.

At RCAS 2017 Kimberly-Clark CIO and former CTO and chief data officer at Walmart, Suja Chandrashekaran will provide a first-hand perspective into how data and analytics is being leveraged at leading retailers and consumer goods companies to drive decisions at the speed of business.

Earlier this year Chandrasekaran was featured on the cover Consumer Goods Technology magazine and had this to say about how technology is leveraged by retail and CG leaders to drive innovation and set the pace for change and the role she has played pushing the innovation envelope: “It is exciting to lead the disruptions, create the seed of an idea, incubate, scale and pave the way. All of the companies I have been a part of led disruptions in some way, shape or form and it has been exciting to lead in these prominent companies. I’m not sure there is anything that has not been, or will not be, disrupted at some point in time — embrace it and enjoy it!”
