Information is burgeoning inside businesses at an exponential rate, generated by social media, transactions, smartphones, sensors and machines, you name it. The total amount of data being captured and stored by industry doubles nearly every year. Enterprises are gathering more data, at a faster pace, than ever before and companies are increasingly looking to tap into the potential of these vast swathes of fast-moving, unstructured and complex streams of data to achieve noticeable improvements in growth and performance. Big data is much more than simply a matter of size – it presents an opportunity to discover key insights and emerging trends in data, make businesses more agile, boardroom decisions better informed, and answer questions that have previously been considered unanswerable. In a competitive marketplace, data driven innovation form a key pillar in twenty-first century sources of growth. And state of the art technologies like advanced Big Data analytics how now opened the door to this world of possibilities. Let’s hear from these industry leaders – their views and experiences on how organizations should all be at the forefront of this brave new world.


Big data and public security: Analytics on the world stage 
Speaker: Peter Ship, Head of Public Security, SAS

The number and type of threats facing citizens around the world, is arguably at a higher level than at any time in human history.  As both the nature and occurrence of risks we are facing grow, public security agencies world-wide are struggling to stay ahead of these threats.

Peter Ship calls on his 30 years as a senior Scotland Yard detective and 10 years as a consultant to public security agencies globally to outline the changing nature of public security threats and how they can be addressed.  He will show how by bringing big data and advanced analytics together, it is possible to create a methodology for public security.  He argues that through this methodology diverse agencies can tailor their processes to better understand, identify and prevent developing threats within their remit.  He does this through practical examples of:


•Organised Crime

•Border Management

•Domestic Violence


IoT: The 4th Industrial Revolution
Speaker: Yau Wai Yeong, Product Marketing Manager, Intel Internet-of-Things Group

The Internet of Things is promising to fuel innovation in nearly every part of our lives: at work, at home, and at play. From grand aspirations like finding more productive ways to feed the global population to optimizing the energy efficiency of the buildings we live and work in, connecting “things” that were never connected before is leading to new data insights that have the potential to materially and meaningfully impact society for the better.  IoT delivers new technologies that help increase productivity and efficiency You’ll have the insight, hard data, and control you need to lower costs and respond more quickly to both issues and opportunities.
