London (PRWEB UK) 16 August 2013
Big Data - channelling information for maximum effect with insight management will be the focus for the workshop to be delivered by Steve Wills, Managing Director of the IMA.
The workshop will give delegates essential advice on how to cut through the data and information overload suffered by decision makers so that they deliver maximum value from Big Data. For those involved in data collection, integration and analysis it will help define ideal outputs and approaches to maximise the value of their work, and for those in current insight management roles it will identify new factors to be considered in dealing with this vital new source.
Steve Wills, Managing Director for the IMA commented:
“For thousands of years information has been a highly prized, but scarce, resource. For that reason it has been valued and typically used for maximum advantage. But the last 50 years has changed all that. Now we are swamped with information, and our problem is recognising which is most valuable, and giving it cut-through in today’s noisy and ever faster moving environment.”
Dale Butler, Managing Director of conference organisers SMi Group added: “Devoted to developing best practice in the field, Steve’s 13 years specialising in maximising the value of insight, resulting in the launch of the IMA, make him the perfect candidate for this workshop and we’re excited to be offering delegates the opportunity to meet this renowned industry authority face-to-face."
17 speakers from leading organisations will deliver case-studies and presentations at SMi Group’s inaugural event, designed to help companies deliver competitive advantage through improved customer insight and business intelligence.
