Data Management & Integration Theatre
Combining data from disparate sources across technical infrastructure and business process, and transforming it into meaningful and valuable information is a challenge most businesses face. Data integration involves combining data residing in different sources and providing users with a unified view of this data. Offering the expertise of speakers from various industries sharing their own experiences in data integration and management, attendees will be able to easily relate to case studies and apply these learnings to their own work.
Transformation of Industries Theatre
This stream will look at how enterprise software is integrated with data flows from IoT. This disruptive transformation is driving new insights into how products are performing in near real time. If leveraged correctly, this can drive new business models and opportunities, analysing data and triggering business processes and transactions, automating entire processes and streaming through organisations. This transformation is not only defined by objects but also by connected people though usability. Together, IoT, usability and mobility will define transformation for industry.
The Launchpad is the dedicated zone for start-ups. Run in partnership with the KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network), who have underwritten some of the costs for their member companies, it was a great success in 2017 with 16 companies.
Each company has the opportunity to make a 10 minute pitch to an audience of around 20 (seats), although this number almost doubled on some occasions.
The Showcase is a leading resource for technological, regulatory and commercial insight in this sector, as well as the destination for developing collaborations and business opportunities.
The programme will be delivered by city managers, business experts and academics and will be focused on bridging the knowledge gap between the complexities of technological innovation and the delivery of practical commercially viable services.
