Discussion Group 3B: Optimising the Ongoing Costs of Cloud Infrastructure

In the past, there has been a distinct, often one-off cost for integrating data into a data warehouse for organisations. But with the growth of cloud computing, it’s now often an ongoing cost with cloud solutions as a service. This session will look at the need to optimise the configuration of infrastructure and tools to reduce cost. Some examples include caching of data when running analyses, pulling small samples of data for pre-analysis to avoid time and costs related to consuming larger datasets.

Discussion Group 4A: Building Innovation into Your Information Delivery Strategy in a More Holistic Way

Organisations have very different models for data governance, with a balance of decentralised vs federated approaches. This session will explore their relative advantages in terms of allowing for innovation and how to evangelise significant changes in data governance when advantageous.

  • Democratising data, reporting etc, but keeping a grip on underlying data architecture reporting capability
  • Where are cross-functional steering committees/working groups best vs product orientated
  • Exploring the successes and challenges of driving innovation through Centres of Excellence/Data Labs
  • Pros and cons of standardisation vs aligning with business change
  • Advantages of centralising both technical and business skills

Discussion Group 4B: How to Operationalise Analytics in an Analogue Environment

For many organisations that aren’t digitally native, it’s a major challenge to embed data and analytics within existing processes, whilst also identifying where processes are malleable. This session will explore how to recognise operational challenges, work within the existing environment, drive change and ultimately enhance business value in analogue business environments. We’ll also explore strategies for encouraging uptake of data analytics at the end-user level; especially with staff who have traditionally been resistant to technology change.

Discussion Group 4C: Redefining Analytics and Integrating Greenfield Analytics Innovations into Your Business

Analytics is evolving. In addition to key insights, it’s increasingly exciting to explore opportunities that technologies such as computer vision, neural networks, new sensor types and data forms provide to visionary organisations. The cost of VR/AR, for example, has diminished dramatically over the past couple of years. What opportunities do these technologies offer up and what are the challenges? This session will also explore the integrating these emerging greenfield technologies into your architecture (also integrating data collection from sensors and sharing through mesh networks etc?).
