    Tech and construction: not so strange bedfellows

    On the face of it, there is little to unite the construction and tech sectors. Superficially at least, the construction sector provides a classic example of ‘waterfall management’: strict plans are formed at the outset of a project, and resources are fixed in place, even though the finished product might be three years away. It is a right-first-time, zero defects sector with detailed dependency scheduling. The tech sector, by contrast, is known for its not-afraid-to-fail, agile mindset, eschewing scheduling for creativity. Tech and construction, then, would certainly appear to be strange bedfellows. Times are changing. The proliferation of Building Information Management platforms on construction sites up and down the country neatly demonstrates that tech really can be embedded into the foundations of a building, and by extension, the construction sector. But how do we further embed the two, often conflicting, cultures?

    Data Storage

    Everyday data continues to grow, showing no signs of slowing down. All of this must be stored, managed and analysed presenting key challenges for businesses.  Krishna Subramanian, COO at Komprise explores the approaches to data management. The reality of data growth is staggering. As more technology is being created and areas such as IoT are expanding rapidly, the amount of data that is being produced is increasing exponentially. IDC predicts that the Global Datasphere will grow from 33 Zettabytes (ZB) in 2018 to 175 ZB by 2025.

    The latest extinction rebellion highlighted an increasingly urgent appetite from the public to tackle climate change and ensure greater sustainability.

    Brands are no exception to the story. Environmentally-aware consumers don’t just want to make the world a better place; a recent survey from Futerra found the majority (96 percent) feel their behaviour and purchasing choices can fuel real change. These consumers recognise they have a social responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint and this is dictating their purchasing decisions.

    We live in a data-saturated world. But data only matters if you can turn information into action. To get from one to the other, you need to tell a story about your data that any person at your company can understand. 

    Why? Because numbers and charts don’t motivate people to seek better outcomes. Stories do.  

    So how do you tell these stories? 

    Here are ten mistakes to avoid in order to tell a good story (about your data) that will drive strategic business.

    According to the 2019 Gartner fourth annual Chief Data Officer (CDO) Survey, the implementation of a data and analytics strategy was ranked the third most-critical success factor when it comes to a CDO’s organisation.

    When it comes to data, we’re all aware of the four ‘Vs’ – variety, velocity, veracity and volume – yet for many organisations, their data warehousing infrastructure is no longer equipped to handle them. Additionally, value, the fifth ‘V’, is even more elusive. So, taking into account the scale of data that many modern companies have means that meeting these challenges requires a new approach – with automation being the foundation.

    When did Weather Source first hear about Snowflake Data Exchange and decide to get involved?

    Snowflake first popped into our mind when we read an article following the massive amount of funding it had secured. And after looking a little deeper, we found that Snowflake’s solution was ideal for our data requirements. In late 2018, our VP of business development contacted Snowflake to discover Snowflake’s proposition of an innovative data marketplace where data providers such as ourselves could showcase our data offerings.

    The timing was perfect as Snowflake hired a new Director of Data Sharing, Bryan Naden, who explained the ambition of the Snowflake Data Exchange (SDE) and it instantly struck a chord with us. It was his priority to onboard data providers in advance of the SDE rollout, so we were at the very forefront of this exciting new data initiative.

    Despite a significant amount of investment into analytics programs, many of which are enjoying decent returns, older companies burdened by legacy processes are failing to unlock the true power of analytics.

    The holy grail -- applying analytics to create harmonious and continuous improvement in operational efficiency across all business functions -- is frustratingly out of reach.

    In an interview with Techerati, Jens Winterberg, Global Analytics & Innovation Manager at Nestlé, put forward his two cents about why older companies struggle to capitalise on data’s possibilities.

    The market has long demanded quicker and more convenient payment methods, and the industry is now answering with ubiquitous payments. Yet at what cost? PSD2 and open banking are now established in the legislative framework, and many third-party providers are springing up with new offerings that democratise access to payments and offer complementary value-added services.

    Banks and other financial organisations are already seeing a surge in the volume and value of electronic transactions through digitalisation. And new channels, like PSD2, are set to exacerbate the pressure on existing fraud defences. Faster payments, through SWIFT gpi and other means, virtually eliminate the window of investigation. And, therefore, necessitate automated real-time detection.

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.”

  • “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.

  • "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)
