We also have a very special presentation from guest speaker Jack Esselink, entitled "Embracing Data Ethics In Business Intelligence." This presentation navigates the fundamental aspects of data ethics, the evolving standards governing its application, and its crucial role in the domain of Business Intelligence (BI). Data ethics relates to the responsible management, analysis, and dissemination of data, ensuring fairness, transparency, privacy, and integrity. For practitioners using Cognos Business intelligence software, understanding data ethics is imperative. Due to the vast amount of data handled and the influential decisions made based on this data, maintaining an ethical standard is not only a regulatory requirement but also a moral obligation. The presentation provides actionable guidance on how to embed ethical considerations in day-to-day operations with Cognos, and why doing so bolsters trust, promotes responsible innovation, and enhances business credibility.
