Controlling & Exploiting your Data for Growth



Managing and controlling Company data is nothing new - but the volume of data that is now being produced is reaching unexpected highs.  This explosion of information provides the possibility to gain an unrivalled understanding of what the Business or customer wants and needs.

The drive to deliver value through the use of Business Analytics is a growing priority for businesses but to reach this goal, strategies and process have to be developed and implemented, and considerable hurdles overcome. 

How do you manage such a vast amount of unstructured data and then identify what is important and analyse it?  Having a tool to support your data would be a golden bullet - but from the various number of suppliers out there professing to answer your problems, what are the real life experiences?  How can Data Management empower your organisation to make better decisions faster?


Representing the peak of industry knowledge, experience and best practice, Controlling & Exploiting Your Data will present real-world user experience.   This workshop will provide new experiences and new perspectives to strengthen and broaden your understanding of how to best manage Business Intelligence, Management Information and Big Data.  It will also give members a crucial opportunity to share experiences and best practice with peers around BI strategies.

Who should attend

IT professionals with a key interest in maximising value from Company data. Discover how Data Management can empower your organisation to make better decisions faster.

Workshops are the backbone of The Forum. Nothing can compare to a group of IT professionals debating and exchanging experience of a specific, defined topic in a confidential environment. Workshops deliver insightful, real life information that helps members achieve their objectives, deliver projects and build relationships with other organisations.
