SAP Big Data Inspiration Day

During the event I had the pleasure of presenting a keynote on the influence of Culture on how we interpret Big Data. In my talk I discussed a number of cases of global and local brands such as Facebook, Alibaba and Coca-Cola.

By gaining in-depth knowledge of local cultures brands have the opportunity to make effective use of Big Data in order to increase customer confidence, gain competitive advantage and ultimately learn to ask the right questions instead of trying to provide the answers to questions that are not there.

Companies should focus on generating questions first, answers will follow.

Big Data needs context  to become actionable.

Culure is a dimension often ignored when it comes to online data.

Interpretation = Information + Culture
