Engage your business in data strategy process for better value

What are the building blocks of a successful business-driven data strategy? Maija Nikula, Chief Data Officer of KONE, Sameli Mäenpää, Chief Data Officer of OP Financial Group, Maria Rautavirta, Director of Data Business Unit at Ministry of Transport and Communications Finland and Tietoevry’s Ritva Aula share their learnings and tips for different phases of the data strategy process.



A strategy is a plan to achieve the desired goal. A well-crafted strategy answers the question “How?” and describes what needs to be done to achieve the jointly agreed vision and goals.

A good data strategy is a plan to achieve strategic business objectives. Achieving these objectives – in the era of data – is largely dependent on the availability of specific data content and capabilities that are essential for digitalization and data-driven decision making.

To leverage the business value of data, constant and meaningful collaboration between business, IT, and data organization is imperative. A holistic data strategy works as a tangible and goal-oriented tool for this dialogue and it aims to make an organization-wide impact.

In this livecast, we share concrete tips on how to bridge the gap between data and business. You’ll be challenged to think about where your organization is with making data strategy and business strategy meet.
