This FREE workshop is brought to you by Techcelerate on behalf of ICT Knowledge Transfer Network (ICT KTN), affiliated to Technology Strategy Board (TSB).

Rationale

Few years back, it was all about web 2.0. Then came Cloud Computing. Today, its Big Data. Everyone is talking about it, but what is Big Data, how does it influence our lives, and what are the biggest opportunities in private and public sector?

It is now recognised that Big Data represents the next frontier of opportunities from healthcare to finance, with the ability to create entirely new businesses through analytics. Everytime someone interacts with a digital asset, data is automatically created and saved. This data remains an underused asset, if used well, could unlock significant value for owner in terms of profits and opportunities.

Data-driven insights are becoming a critical competitive differentiator, in terms of determing corporate investments, creation of new products and services, and eventually the next growth phase of companies.

The sooner we understand this topic, and actions we take as a result, could help us steer our organisations to growth and profitability.
