Our Vision : Nurturing a community of data professionals in the UK who champion the value of data management

2018 July 12 - DAMA UK Meet Up Cardiff - hosted by BT/EE

THE FUTURE OF DATA MANAGEMENT: DATA OPENNESS & PRIVACY BT INTERNATIONAL DATA CENTRE, CARDIFF BAY THURSDAY 12 JULY 2018 Is the growth of open data and data democratisation a friend or enemy of personal data protection & privacy? This was one of the many questions addressed in DAMA UK’s first regional Meet Up event in Wales on 12 July 2018. Thanks to the generosity of BT / EE, this all day conference was hosted at BT/ EE’s International Data Centre in Cardiff Bay. In total 55 people attended, and in their feedback gave the day an overall 86% satisfaction rating. Presentation topics were very wide ranging, embracing many different aspects of data management, delivered by speakers from a variety of both public and private organisations. Jason Perkins & Jason Howell of BT and Neil Cornish & Greg Lee of Meridian IT all talked about the exciting potential power of data to drive change through widening its availability, and applying Big Data analytics and Artificial Intelligence to derive insights and value from it. Welsh Water overviewed their company wide, award winning data governance and data improvement programme, which is delivering major benefits. Lisa Allen & Miranda Sharp of Ordnance Survey focused on the critical importance of geospatial data and the Internet of Things and highlighted how data can be combined in a variety of ways to improve people’s lives in Smart Cities and elsewhere. Cardiff University’s Yulia Cherdantseva of the National Software Academy outlined what it is doing to train and educate the data management professionals of the future. To build on the success of the event, there was an overwhelming demand for further conferences in the Wales & West region. Several companies represented offered to act as hosts. DAMA UK are also looking to set up an online data management community to help sustain the momentum built up during the day. Watch out for further details.
