The Big Data & Data Analytics Event
On Tuesday 25th April at 6pm, Capita IT Resourcing held an evening called the ‘Big Data & Data Analytics’ event. The purpose of the event was to engage with senior professionals within Big Data and Analytics and to understand our clients’ needs within this sector. Held at an impressive tech venue in central London, the evening consisted of drinks, presentations, nibbles and networking.
We had three speakers, Doug Brown, Ryan Moriarty and Simon Rowse who each presented 15 minute talks about how Big Data and Data Analytics could play a key part in helping businesses grow. After a brief Q&A, we all enjoyed a selection of finger food and drinks to network at the bar before finishing around 9pm.
