Hitachi

Date & Time: 15th October 2018 ; 09:00 am– 11:30 am

Location: Meeting Room Dubai C, Dubai World Trade Center, Dubai

Briefing Leaders: Steve Lewis- CTO Emerging EMEA 

Purpose:

Machine learning (ML) and AI help you create new business models, engage customers in entirely new ways and grow your profits. If your organization is like most today, your decisions use less than 1% of your unstructured data and less than 50% of your structured data. Right now, we’re entering a new era where massive amounts of live data from sensors, devices and other sources carry additional insights that you can’t ignore – especially when they are combined with business data and other emerging sources. Attend this session to see how real-world business leaders design and automate modern data pipelines to address the growing complexity of managing, integrating, analyzing and securing the increased volume, velocity, and variety of their data. Learn how agile executives operationalize AI models that are trained by data scientists, deliver insights to end users through analytics embedded in their day-to-day applications, and deliver outcomes back to their businesses.

Aaron White- Regional Sales Director ME

Purpose:  

“Value Added Tax (VAT) was introduced in the United Arab Emirates & Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 1 January 2018. VAT will provide the regional governments with a new source of income which will be continued to be utilized in providing high-quality public services and even better infrastructure to the country. It will also help government move towards its vision of reducing dependence on hydrocarbons as a source of revenue. Most of the remaining GCC member countries are expected to roll out VAT in 2019. VAT is a shared responsibility between governments, business and consumers and helps bringing more transparency and diversity to any economy.

Businesses in a VAT economy are responsible for carefully documenting their business income, costs and associated VA. Registered businesses and traders will charge VAT to all of their customers at the prevailing rate and incur VAT on goods/services that they buy from suppliers. The difference between these sums is reclaimed or paid to the government.

Businesses today rely on IT more than ever before. IT is no longer considered merely a cost center and is now an integral part of every business, even used as a competitive differentiator. There has been a fundamental shift in how IT is delivered and consumed. CIOs and IT Decision Makers are looking to bring cloud-like simplicity and agility to their data centers and are looking beyond existing vendors, processes and solutions that are deployed today to enable that. So, what does this new enterprise IT stack look like and what should CIOs do to stay on top of the innovation curve to remain competitive?
