Munich Re: Driving a Big Data Transformation

Data and analytics are at the heart of the digital transformation. Implementing a modern data platform can be challenging; moreover, success requires a shift in culture. Andreas will discuss the ways Munich Re drives cultural and technological change within their company, focusing on three key elements: people, processes, and technology. What does it mean to be a data-driven organization? How can we provide self-service analytics to our internal and external customers in an agile way? How do we get the most value out of our big data lake? How does Munich Re balance technology and culture to meet the data demands of their business?
