Pushing the Bounds of Data Analytics Within a Major International Engineering Company

The growing role of analytics and building the organisational ability to exploit the potential has moved data led development into the centre stage. What data do we need, how is it used, what use cases do we aspire to? This implies knowledge and a vision for the future. A future which appears out of reach by relying on established process thinking. Insights often come in response to situational drivers using the data we have to hand. Owen will discuss how a responsive infrastructure for a data led approach to understanding the challenges can be built looking at the leadership, first level operations. He will close on a discussion of the sustainable, predictive analytics capability he is building now the quality of information has reached an appropriate level of maturity.

Many insights have come from dealing with a wide range of challenges and looking at numerous problems from different angles and reflecting on lessons, every step of the way.

Stretching the Art of the Possible, Avoid the Risks of Wholesale Transformation.

Sean will highlight some of the practical data challenges at the coalface of project delivery. He will explore what can be done to extract additional value from current approaches and why this brings significant merit. How far can we stretch the art of the possible while avoiding the risks of big-bang transformation?
