A 360° VIEW OF DATA IN THE ENTERPRISE
23 May 2019 | London
The Landmark London Hotel
The UK’s most prominent data conference is back!
Information Age is pleased to announce the return of its flagship data conference and the UK’s leading event for the use of data in the enterprise.
The Data Leadership Summit is the thinking person’s big data event – for IT pros who are not drawn into hype but do recognise opportunities. They don’t want another hype-fuelled event telling them what big data is – they want to become leaders in generating business value from data.
Doing this involves looking at the subject not just from an analytics and intelligence angle, but also from an infrastructure and transformation perspective, strategy and innovation, and security and governance.
This 360° view of how to approach data in the enterprise has gained much praise since the event’s launch in 2012, and now registrations are open for the seventh Data Leadership Summit, set to take place on 23 May 2019 at The Landmark Hotel.
The summit’s renowned speakers are the cream of the crop of the data and IT world when it comes to demonstrating real business value from deploying technology and data strategies in large organisations.
A number of the speakers are also alumni of the Data Leadership Awards, a prominent programme in association with the Data Leadership Summit that reveals and celebrates the UK’s top data leaders each year. Both events take place on 23 May – summit in the day and awards in the evening – forming an important date in the data community’s calendar.
Bonhill Group is delighted to welcome you to the Data Leadership Summit, co-located with the Data Leadership Awards on the 23rd of May 2019.
Understanding your data has never been more important. Data has become the “new oil” or the “new currency” many will say. It is the commodity that fuels digital innovation, however, unlocking actionable insight is still a pain point for many companies (Datanami, 2019). Not only is the data itself gold, so are the analytical methods we implement to identify its worth. This knowledge about your company and your customer’s behaviours significantly influences your business models, strategies, products and services. With the right information, we are able to predict behaviours, identify trends, improve internal efficiency and reduce costs.
While the opportunities seem endless and profitable – “with great power comes great responsibility”. As data and analytical processes evolve so do roles and responsibilities, technologies, cyber threats and regulations. GDPR has significantly influenced how and what data is collected. Marketing strategies have been revised. Data and analytics teams are growing, however, the technologies and investments they require are yet to be approved. Greater security awareness and privacy protection are at the forefront of company concerns. And the amount of information we receive has more than doubled as a result of more ‘connected things’.
This year’s one-day conference programme aims to address the points mentioned above and more through engaging presentations, insightful panel discussions and fireside chats. Join us as we discuss:
Each year we welcome leading professional and headlining companies. In 2018 we were delighted to welcome speakers and attendees from Southern Water, Cancer Research UK, Lowell Group, Peculium/AIEVE, SKY, Founders4Schools, Expedia, Royal Mail Data Services, Legal & General, EE/BT, Lebara Mobile, NASA, IBM, Shell, GE Aviation, News UK, JLL, KPMG, Veolia, MapR, National Trust, London Borough of Camden, FinancialForce, Infoshare, Big Data for Humans, ASDA, Dunnhumby, Alteryx, Vodafone and many more.
The Summit is your opportunity to hear from and network with your data peers and it does not end there! Be sure to join us at the Data Leadership Awards evening where we recognise and celebrate the best in the business. Categories include and are not limited to: Chief Data Officer of the Year; Data Analytics Firm of the Year; Data Scientist of the Year; Data for Good; Data Transformation of the Year; Rising Star; Chief Security Officer of the Year; Data Leader in AI and Best Data Technology Product of the Year.
Come and share your knowledge and expertise while staying on top of important industry trends.
We look forward to welcoming you in May!
