Success in our data driven economy is as much about learning and using what you don’t know as it is about acting on what you do know. Businesses need the clarity that comes from an organizational capability to leverage data in many forms, from many places, through many methods and for a variety of purposes – all at the right time and in the right situation. Data plays a role in constantly changing regulatory environments and industry or sector needs – data is woven into everything we do. "The event is to take place on Monday, 26 May from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Galadari Hotel" The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) UK’s Sri Lanka Branch, has announced a knowledge sharing event organised in collaboration with exclusive knowledge partner, KPMG in Sri Lanka.
