Data Natives: Are workplaces snuffing out Predictive Applications?

On the 19th and 20th of November 2015, the “Data Natives” will meet in the nHow-Hotel in Berlin. More than 450 participants have already registered for this conference. The topics emphasized will be: Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), and FinTech. Lars Trieloff, Director of Product Management, will represent Blue Yonder at the practice-oriented technological conference.



The “Data Natives” innovative conference will feature noteworthy speakers such as the data scientist Kirk Borne and Forrester Chief Analyst Mike Gualtieri on the 19th and 20th of November 2015 in Berlin. In total, More than 40 speakers will bring their know-how to the conference. According to the agenda, the three topics of emphasis will be:

  • Big Data Many modern-day innovations are driven by Big Data technologies. Machine Learning plays a special role in this. At the “Data Natives” conference, industry experts will discuss the disruptive dynamic of Data Science in various economic sectors.
  • IoT The Internet of Things is constantly growing. Whether in the personal or the industrial realm, all aspects of our lives can be tracked and optimized. This technological revolution offers great economic possibilities.
  • FinTech Especially in the financial sector, traditional products and services have long been inadequately efficient. Data Science and IoT technologies can therefore support businesses in rendering personalized financial services. This will help institutions gain customers without accounts as well as increase security.

Under the title “Predictive Applications are going to steal your job: this is what you need to know” Lars Trieloff, Director of Product Management for Blue Yonder, reflects on Data Natives with regards to the effects of Big Data Analytics on the job market. His argument: In addition to the men and women in production, office workers will now be affected. Predictive Applications can take over the tasks of skilled workers and of executives in some ways. Because these applications automate decisions and are data-driven, they accelerate and improve business processes. For employers and employees who ask themselves what they will face with this, Lars Trieloff has several answers in his back pocket.

It promises to be exciting in Berlin, and we would be very happy to see you there! A limited number of tickets is still available.
