Strategizing Gen AI: A case study in advancing business and mindsets

Nimisha Asthagiri, Services Leader, Advanced Analytics and AI, North America Thoughtworks



We'll share our experience developing a Gen AI strategy across Seagen's molecule-to-market value chain, leading to an advanced R&D product and other innovations. With an adoption-first mindset, we identified ROI-based use cases, mitigated risks, established governance, and ingrained agile principles.


We'll offer practical frameworks and techniques, and discuss challenges like overcoming biases and balancing user needs with progress.


Finally, we'll highlight the importance of a robust data and AI platform based on FAIR data and 'Data as a Product' principles, hoping our insights help others in their data and AI transformations.

Data and analytics at scale: Exploring decentralized operating models

Adam Lundberg, VP, Data Services, Total Wine and More

Eric Dressler, Director of Data Products and Platforms, Parkland

Jeremy Forman, VP, Research & Development AI, Data, & Analytics Pfizer

John Spens, Director of Data and AI, Thoughtworks

Nghi Ho, Head of Enterprise Data & AI Platform and Data Governance, Gilead



We'll discuss how data and analytics organizations have been exploring decentralized operating models to meet the growing demand for data. While many platforms support this approach, the real challenge lies in enabling individuals and teams to change their working methods and adopt new processes for responsible and effective data delivery.


In this session, we'll speak with leaders at various stages of implementing decentralized approaches to understand their goals and the challenges they faced.


We'll explore the problems that led them to consider decentralization, the outcomes they hoped to achieve, whether they met those expectations, the challenges encountered, and the lessons learned along the way.
