Big Data London 2023

The team attended the Big Data event 2023 this year. Proving very popular, having to queue to get into the talks and navigate around the venue. Clearly people are enjoying being back face to face more and networking. The hot topic was AI.

Some opinions are that AI is going to be as powerful as the introduction of the Internet, so those that don’t choose to adopt it will fail competitively as a business.

In terms of approaching it, you will get the early adopters and dominant leaders, those that build it and those that think about how it could compliment the business and build a longer- term strategy around the use of it.

Lets not forget I am sure a lot of businesses are using some form already be it in:

  • Propensity modelling or even a simple RFM to refine Marketing campaign activity
  • Anomaly detection for example in bank card fraud
  • Optimisation of allocating the right stock to stores to maximise sales
  • Product recommendations based on a similar audiences behaviour.

These examples are a step in the right direction. However, for any business to achieve it needs to have the right balance of Technology, people and process aligned to transform and it needs to be data fit!  This means being fast, lean, accurate, efficient and innovative within the business.
