This special event is themed on a current key industry issue:

‘Using Big Data to achieve successful customer Outcomes’

Dr Andreas Schroeder from the Aston Business School will provide a perspective based on leading edge research as to how to overcome the challenges of leveraging the big data opportunity to deliver successful  customer outcomes.

We will then hear from industry speakers as to the hands on challenges their companies have faced in using data to create competitive advantage.

  • Marc Noble will tell us about the role data has played in  Inca Digital’s journey to service excellence

The format will be very informal to encourage as much dialogue as possible, and if there is time we will have a Panel Q&A.
