Natural BI Summit 2019

Networking & Solution Days

9th – 10th May 2019 in Hamburg

    Natural BI Summit

    Two days, six keynote speeches, twelve user talks, twelve solution workshops, one event: with about 350 participants from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and the USA, and a programme filled to bursting with new ideas, the second round of our Business Intelligence Forum was held on 9th and 10th May 2019.

    At the event on the 23rd floor of the Emporio Tower in Hamburg, everything revolved around the trends and topics currently on the minds of financial specialists and CFOs, which ranged from methods, tools and concrete best-practice approaches for reaping the benefits of the technological and cultural changes ensuing from digitisation, right through to useful tips on finding one’s own personal balance amid rapid digital transformation.


    The venue on the Nord Event Panoramadeck of the Emporio Tower with its spectacular 360° view across Hamburg, top-class speakers, and participants from diverse sectors, from BASF and Ringmetall through Julius Meinl and MLP to the German Red Cross, meant that the Natural BI Summit guests enjoyed an exceedingly varied event for the sharing of ideas and experience among peers.

    "I have come away with plenty of inspiration and ideas including, for instance, what we ought to be doing next with the CP software," said Isabell Karbowiak from rahm Zentrum für Gesundheit GmbH. "This will be very good for us to implement at our company."

    Manuela Orlandini from BMV Mineralöl Versorgungsgesellschaft mbH was similarly impressed: "What I enjoyed most was Anders Indset's speech. It really struck a chord with me, which I found great." Anders Indset, one of the world's leading business philosophers, made one point especially clear in his rousing keynote speech: "There's no such thing as the one digitisation that will ever be completed. We have no idea what we're transforming ourselves into. Instead, we should be asking ourselves what future would be desirable for us."
