The Experiences of UK SME on the Big Data Journey - The Story so Far

How techUK is supporting the Alan Turing Institute’s SME Summit.

On 16th November techUK Deputy CEO Antony Walker will be leading the opening session of an Alan Turing Institute Summit focusing on Big Data for Small and Medium Enterprises. Held in Cambridge the summit aims to identify the key challenges in data science for SMEs and to identify key priorities in meeting them. The Summit will bring together SMEs and start-ups that were born digital and recognise the potential of big data to discuss not only the opportunities but what SMEs need to gain the full value from data.

Through case studies and discussion, the Summit will explore how using data can create value and competitive advantage, and identify the opportunities and challenges for the data economy.

We are delighted to have this opportunity to bring techUK SME members, at different stages of their Big Data journey, to the Summit to share their experiences, insights, best practices and lessons learnt from their journey so far. Issues discussed will include how these SMEs have developed and implemented a Big Data strategy, the business opportunities gained from applying Big Data technologies and solutions and the challenges they faced and overcame along the way. Speakers will explore what they might have done differently, how they overcame business and technical challenges and discuss the type and level of support needed so that more UK SMEs can embark on the Big Data journey.
