Digital Disruption Part II Explores Big Implications of Big Data

The Digital Disruption Series, co-presented by Scheller College and Accenture, discusses trends in today’s ever-changing digital arena. The three-part series explores ways successful organizations and managers embrace technological advances and leverage opportunities to accelerate innovation, create value, and build the workforce of the future.

Part II focused on big implications of big data for business, with a discussion on how data science and other technologies can solve complex problems, harness applied intelligence, create new opportunities, and innovate the way we conduct business. In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th, the panel featured an all-women panel of industry leaders:

  • Maryam Alavi (moderator), Stephen P. Zelnak Jr. Dean’s Chair in Management, Dean of Scheller College of Business, Professor of IT Management
  • Kristin Fink, National VP of Cardiovascular Sales, Novartis
  • Dana Randall, Professor and Co-Executive Director, Institute for Data Engineering and Data Science at Georgia Tech
  • Gayle Sirard, North American Lead, Accenture Applied Intelligence
