In the past 6-7 years we’ve seen a significant amount of money being spent by corporates to get value from various data technologies. But the missing piece we often see and ask our clients is: Where and how is the wider business involved?
It’s that time of year again – time to reflect on what has been and what is to come. As we come into 2017, it feels like the creation of new technologies and their application, and the hype surrounding these technologies, continues.
Alpesh Doshi presented in the company of some excellent speakers, providing insight into the use cases of data within their businesses. It proved there were great practical examples of the application of big data to real business challenges and strategies.
