QuanCon24 Recap: Activate the Power of Decision Intelligence for Data Without Doubt

In an era of disruption – from supply chain disruption, geopolitics, cost of living, and elections – organizations face a multitude of critical decisions that can lead to increased risk, missed opportunities, or dead ends. Organizations must evolve to make fast confident decisions to become efficient, resilient, and reach goals before the competition.

But so much more is possible with the right data, in the right context.

That's why we dedicated the theme for our seventh and largest QuanCon this year to navigating Data Without Doubt.

On March 12 2024, Quantexa's leaders were joined by industry experts from across the globe to explore how today’s organizations can activate the power of decision intelligence to achieve quality data, employ AI, make more accurate decisions, and achieve transformation.

QuanCon24 was presented in partnership with PwC, Ernst & Young, Dun & Bradstreet, KPMG, and Moody’s, and was designed for businesses on their journey to protect, optimize, and grow their organization by modernizing their data strategy and decision-making.

He also underscored that in this “era of disruption,” it is crucial for companies trying to evolve and innovate to master “the right use of technology, data, and AI.”
