Grail Insights’ Vikramaditya Narendra, was an invited speaker at the IIT Bombay Systematics Continuum on August 16, 2020. Narendra shared his expertise in data integration and the key factors that deliver business insights: systems, processes, and people.
Narendra focused on the why, where, and what’s next that data integration can deliver. “Data integration lets businesses know why because data gives you insights. It lets you know where you are, so you can monitor and course- correct,” he explained, adding that “data integration also lets you know what’s next by helping you plan and predict.”
As part of the session, he examined the trade-offs between data access (the more data you connect, the more valuable the insights) versus privacy concerns and questions around data ownership. He also shared industry case examples of how data integration drives confident decision-making.
“Businesses should embrace data integration as they build on their vision of having the right data and analyses, available to the right decision-makers, at the right time,” says Narendra who has worked extensively in the data and insights space, with a focus on CPG and Financial Services.
The Systematics Continuum seminar series is the flagship event of the annual industry interaction sessions at Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management, IIT Bombay. Established in 1995, it is one of the top-ranked business schools in India.
