9:30am - 10:00am
Understanding the changing landscape of data rules
James Milligan: Legal and Public Affairs Adviser at the Direct Marketing Association (UK) Ltd

There’s no question: Data today is increasing at an exponential rate, and with it, so are data protection laws worldwide.

Not only is data increasing, but it is changing — growing in variety and velocity. The world’s information is doubling every two years and is flowing in and out of organisations at an unprecedented pace, posing new challenges in data governance.

10:00am - 10:30am
Making Sense of Digital Data
Tim Drye: Managing Director DataTalk (Statistical Solutions) Ltd

We collect all of this data, numerous spreadsheets full of figures and information but how do we use it and what should we do with it? There is no point collecting it if we are not going to use it to guide your business forward. Find out how to make the most of the value your data holds.

What is BIG Data really all about?
Matthew Bayfield Founder of TURN2, Optimising the Front Office

We are in the era of big data. With everyone thinking about how it can benefit them, and how they can change the world! Using five stories of brands using big data, we will talk about some of the dangers, and opportunities that household name companies have experienced. The lessons that we can all learn about the pitfalls of treating all data the same are discussed, as are the new forms of data usage (location, GeoSpatial, X-device). We will also look at the role that data has in creating a better planet, with a look at some potential future use cases as we move into a world of machine-machine data.

11:30am - 12:00 NOON
