    Data Strategy

    Businesses of all sizes, operating across every sector, are taking note. Chief data officers (CDOs) are now a frequent fixture at the executive table, and leaders recognise that it’s impossible to be a digital business without being data-driven. As such, enterprises need a coherent data and analytics strategy that maximises what they can do with data and use it to its full potential. But where data analytics initiatives can fall down is where there is an over-emphasis on one aspect of a project such as what deployment model to make – whether it be cloud, on-premises or a hybrid approach. Of course, this is an important consideration, but it shouldn’t come before the basics of developing a data strategy and data-driven culture. Prioritising deployment risks a disjointed approach to data, which can lead to disillusionment and the breaking down of trust among employees in business processes.

    For organisations new to workforce productivity tools like Slack or Microsoft Teams, the reaction is pretty much universal: How did we manage before? 

    These collaboration tools and others take the snappy, efficient qualities of instant messaging and place them at epicentre of working life, unifying the previous patchwork of applications into something more like a tapestry. Employees can talk, discover, act and share with speed. Companies become infinitely more productive.

    Many, particularly your “cloud-first”, companies have been using these tools long before Covid-19 and have found the remote working transition seamless. A great many more were forced to spin them up overnight.

    It’s no secret that DevOps teams typically have three main priorities: increasing agility and innovation, improving collaboration, and delivering products faster to market. It’s also no secret that they will be quick to adopt any technology that supports these goals.

    Containerisation is a natural fit for this framework: increasing the scalability and dynamism of the cloud to develop and update applications faster, meet the ever-increasing demands placed on DevOps teams, and ultimately deliver better customer experiences. However, there are a few obstacles still standing in the way.

    Underpinning today’s data revolution are data architectures which define how data is stored, arranged, managed and used.

    With the rise of data-intensive applications such as AI and analytics and the deluge of unstructured data brought about by IoT, there is a growing need for more efficient and flexible data architectures so that organisations can keep data centre costs low and increase speed, agility and time-to-value for data initiatives.

    As of 2017, only 20 per cent of organisations were using artificial intelligence (AI) in their daily operations. While AI algorithms are still being developed and optimised, this technology already helps companies significantly improve the way they perform routine business tasks. And by allowing mundane tasks to be done more consistently and accurately, AI can provide employees with more time and mental space to perform cognitively sophisticated tasks.

    Among the 20 per cent of organisations using AI, many have developed useful methods for deploying it in their operations. Here are some intriguing cases of AI deployment to encourage you to delegate your own repetitive tasks to the technology.

    The vast majority of businesses today acknowledge that their data is important, even critical to their operations. Despite this, however, many organisations fail to take adequate measures to safeguard this crucial asset.

    With data breaches caused by cyber-attacks on the rise, protecting data has become paramount, and yet data management often remains an afterthought. It has become imperative to not only develop a data management strategy but harness appropriate technology in the form of a data management platform. This is essential to prevent data loss events from malicious attacks or disasters, as well as for compliance and business continuity purposes.

Testimonials

  • "The show has been good. There’s been a lot of people, a lot of attendance. People passing by; I kind of like the idea of having different types of businesses like IoT, Security and Big Data, having a nice mix of things. I get the chance to talk to some people that have a complete different perspective.”
    Principal Sales Engineer - Maria DB
  • “We’ve been on exhibition duty the whole time. It’s been that busy. I has a box of business cards when I arrived, 500, and all gone, every single one is gone. Really engaging. “It’s our second time at the show, we did it last year. Definitely had to do it again this year, and it’s been a resounding success, really really good. I would suggest that anybody that is entering this market space, look at the BDW show, not only form a view point of exhibiting, but also presenting. You have to do the two together to make it worthwhile."
    Sales Director, UK – Splash BI
  • “It is the first year we exhibit and I find the event super interesting. We gave a talk, which was very well attended and afterwards we had very good discussions. I would say the event was innovative and offers good opportunities to network.”
    Marketing Manager - Oracle
  • “This is our second time participating in Big Data World in Singapore and we’ve seen a lot of traffic over the two days. The conversations in the big data community around machine learning is a lot more mature here. Not only the delegates are interested in big data, they are also keen to learn more about data science, artificial intelligence and internet of things.”
    Regional Sales Director - Qubole Inc.
  • "Pivigo has participated in many events in the UK & Europe over the last 12 months and Big Data World was by far the best of them all. The event was a huge success delivering a ROI, prompting us to participate in Big Data World in Germany and London next year."
    Marketing & Communications Manager - Pivigo
  • "I have taken away some great ideas from Big Data World! I have talked with some great suppliers which was my main reason for attending – to connect and network with people in the industry. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year! "
    Head of Data Science - Barclays (Visitor)
  • "Cloud Expo Europe & Data Centre World located alongside Big Data World added huge value to my experience at the event as it made me think about the different ways of relating to data & making me question things which I don’t usually think about from a data point of view in my every day work life. Overall, I liked the range, scope & diversity of the event and I will definitely recommend the rest of the Sky team attend alongside myself in 2019."
    Data Scientist - Sky (Visitor)
  • "I’m here to learn about all emerging technologies, get an insight into the developments in the technology world. I think around Cloud and Machine Learning and AI are all big areas to cover so I think being able to get high level insights from the presentation available is important. I will be coming back next year as well."
    Senior Director - Ralph Lauren (Visitor)
