Welcome to techUK’s Data Analytics Week!
Today marks the beginning of techUK’s first ever Data Analytics Week- highlighting the opportunities and benefits of data analytics across different sectors and...
Data analytics has been used by organisations for decades to transform business productivity, mitigate risk and improve customer service. The rapid increase in data creation in recent years, paired with improvements in data storage, increased access to computing power offered by the cloud and advanced processing methods, has provided companies with an opportunity to unlock greater insights from their data in new and creative ways. Nowadays data analytics is intergral for many businesses to respond to customers wants and needs as well as remain commercially competitive.
Throughout the week we will highlight best practice examples of how organisations are using data analytics tools and solutions to transform their businesses, optimising the customer experience and ensuring citizens/customers remain protected.
We will also provide commentary on how these case studies can be applied to other sectors that are currently behind the adoption curve, to ensure all UK organisations are making the most of the data analytics tools and technologies that’s available to them.
Over the coming days, our members and other industry experts will be contributing blogs on data analytics in four key sectors:
- Tuesday – Healthcare- including efforts to tackle COVID-19
- Wednesday – Environment, including transportation, energy
- Thursday – Cybersecurity
- Friday – Public Sector
