Craig Saunders, XRCE Services Innovation Lab manager, will give a talk on June 25th at 11:00 AM: Analytics and Agility – What’s Coming Next?

Abstract: Big data and analytics are clearly essential components in today’s business value chain.  Amidst the maelstrom of new technologies, end-user expectations, demands from business leaders and debates around the hype of big data, it is increasing challenging to decide how to balance energy and effort between focus areas of data, the cloud, security, privacy, addressing skills gaps and organisational boundaries --- just to name a few.  If we look beyond the present however – What’s next?  How will that affect the balance of pressures we see today and influence our actions in order to gain long-term value from analytics in an agile way.
