Bookmark and Share
Friday, August 8th 2014


Venue: IBM, South Bank, London

Personal navigation data, earth observations and the internet of things (sensor webs) are amongst the largest volume sources of big data and each has location at their core. McKinsey in their recent report on big data, assert that it will become a key basis of competition, underpinning new waves of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer benefit, with personal navigation data alone being worth $800bn worldwide during the current decade.

AGI has organised a special one day conference as a forum for knowledge exchange covering the key technical concepts, business issues and real world use cases. It features world leading experts from big data (IBM, Cloudera, MapR, Deloitte), major commercial users (Marks and Spencer, Telefonica) and geospatial sectors (Esri, Ordnance Survey). Two parallel streams will run through the day, one focussing on Strategy and the other Best Practice. The conference is accompanied by an exhibition.
