Data architecture – from company backbone to business value creation engine, by Veerle Lozie, COO/CIO and Piet De Ceuleners, IT Manager, Melexis

Melexis is a global supplier of micro-electronic semiconductor solutions. Data processing is part of one of its core processes (testing of ICs). Five years ago, a program started to optimise this data processing. The key drivers were creating more business value and taking (data-driven) decisions in a more efficient way.
The base for this is (1) a future-oriented data architecture and (2) a governance model to organise the management of the data in an optimal way.

Veerle and Piet will guide you through the journey of defining and implementing their new data architecture, including corporate (structured) and manufacturing (unstructured big) data, and how this is used to bring additional value.

Data governance – Inspiring keynote on best practices by Sophie Angenot, Managing Partner QuaData

Data Governance is not just about keeping your company compliant with all kinds of regulations.
In a data-driven environment, Data Governance also ensures that your data assets can deliver full value by providing qualitative, available, interpretable and compliant data. 
Many organizations realize that agility is necessary, but how can you ensure (re)usable data in an agile way? What is the roadmap for your data when migrating? How do you combine different data sources or platforms? During this presentation, you will find out how to approach this within your company through concrete examples and use cases.
