Events Coming Up

If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that there are a lot of different events out there! With this in mind, we wanted to make certain that rather than hosting a seminar and presenting some slides, we offer sessions with real value. The Masterclass Workshops that we have lined up will give you actions to take back to the office – specific to your organisation.

These are some of the workshops and other events we have coming up:

What’s it all about?

Organisations of all  sizes are looking at ways to use their data to create improvements in their products, services and business performance.  A challenge that many face is knowing how go about it. This is limiting progress and adding risk into the business unnecessarily.

Having a data strategy is an important first step in moving the agenda forward. It gives you with a framework that allows you to generate business value from data and analytics.

In this powerful 2-hour workshop you will learn how to build and deliver a solid data strategy for your business. From why you need one, to how to get buy in from the wider business and approaches to driving cultural change in the process.

‘The Data Strategy Masterclass really opened our eyes to the importance of a well-defined data strategy in achieving our organisational goals.Thanks again’.

What’s it all about?

Once you have your data strategy in place, one of the next steps will involve choosing the right platform to support that strategy.

Many strategies can fail to deliver because the wrong choices are made early on in this process. There’s a lot of choice in the market at the moment and every vendor will be telling you that their technology is the thing you need.

During this session, you’ll learn how to pick a technology stack that aligns properly to your strategy – and what the various components within it are that you’ll need to consider. We’ll give you a framework for your platform that will guide its development, and give you the right foundations from which it can grow.
