"The Big Data" Evening
1st March 2018

We live in an era of digital revolution. The result? Big Data. Typically, the word ‘Big Data’ refers to data sets so large and complex that they are difficult to process using traditional applications; it has the potential to impact almost everything around us. Travel, shopping, banking, education, sports and life science is no exception.

Such data includes both ‘structured’ (such as traditional databases or spreadsheets) and ‘unstructured’ data (such as photos, videos, and social media updates).


Are you interested in learning more about how “Big Data” and how it could help you develop your business?

Want to hear about the latest trends in this fast-moving environment?  What are the benefits of using Big Data and why you should get involved?


The focus of the event will be two-fold:

a) Increasing awareness of the role of Big Data in everyday business operations, helping you to understand how you can integrate it within your own organisation

b) Employing Big Data to improve the business in terms of identifying new customer trends, potential new routes to market and improved market segmentation

Join us on Thursday 19th April 2018 at the Goodwood Room, West Sussex County Council offices, Parkside, Chart Way Horsham RH121RL for an exciting event to find out more about what Big Data means for you and how you can use it to grow your business.
