Data Strategies Captured through Graphic Art

By on

At our Enterprise Data World (EDW) and CDO Vision 2016 conferences, we invited Hannah Sanford to represent key presentations throughout the event in her amazing Graphic Art depictions. It was a big hit among attendees and her finished representations of designated talks were probably one of the most popular subject of tweets throughout the event (#EDW16).

Here we give you the finished pieces created by Hannah.

There were twelve sessions in total captured through “Visual Communications” as Hannah describes the work:

  1. The event opening keynote presented by James Tyo titled, The CDO’s Top 10 Surprises of a Successful Enterprise Data Office. James discussed how as the enterprise gravitates toward data for competitive advantage, improved efficiencies and real-time insights, developing an enterprise organization to ensure that the data is managed properly, valued appropriately and leveraged fully is paramount. As BB&T’s Chief Data Officer, Jim Tyo has a proven perspective for developing a world-class, data-driven enterprise approach that he has condensed into a “Top 10” for Enterprise Data Office success. Believing that this organization needs to be thought of as an evolution, not a revolution, Tyo will discuss his philosophy on getting started, gaining executive buy-in and investment, the importance of agility, and the tempting pitfalls along the way.
