Morning Keynote: Data is nothing if not reliable

Manu Bansal, Co-Founder & CEO @ Lightup

Data is now starting to be on the critical path for the business. Broken data means broken customer experience. And that means broken data is not acceptable. Yet, even the most advanced, most data-reliant Fortune 500 organizations are frequently ending up with bad data directly hurting the business.
In this talk, we discuss real, hard-hitting scenarios where bad data comes back to bite customer experience. We then dig into the reasons why data reliability doesn't automatically follow infrastructure reliability. And finally, we discuss the evolution of the data landscape that led us to such a challenging problem and how the problem can be solved with Lightup using the abstraction of Data Quality Indicators (DQIs).
