Discover how Barco Measures their Marketing ROI with SAP Analytics Cloud

The implementation of “SalesForce (SF)” had an impact on the BI side, as Barco had to rework their back-end to integrate new datasets. In parallel, they chose to move to “SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)” as their front-end tool. Cubis created a widely-used report called “Marketing ROI” for the marketing team, which leverages SAC’s self-service BI capabilities. Barco continued to improve their SAC story, from “Marketing ROI 1.0” to “Marketing ROI 2.1”. Join us as the date day to know all about it!

Keynote: Data Mesh in Azure

For years and years, organizations have been operating on a model where data was put in silos and where this data was consequently never shared with other entities in the organization. And if it was ultimately shared, it took ages for it to become available to whoever needed it. What if we told you that there is a better way which comes with the name “Data Mesh”. It proposes a complete new (and fresh) approach and it changes how organizations let their data work (for them). In this session we will discuss Data Mesh (why do you need it, what does it solve, how does it work,…) and we will show you how you can (help) change your organization and evolve towards this new way of working. We will also make it practical and use the Cloud-scale Analytics framework to achieve all of the above in Azure.
