The new data vision
A new vision of business in the second decade is emerging. Data-saturated. Insight-rich. Scientific decision-making.
Moving from ideal to operational can feel challenging. Data roadblocks. Analytics austerity. Opinion-led.
So where can you find ideas and solutions to get you closer to the cutting-edge?

Our conference has established itself as the agenda-setting event for all those involved in driving digital-first, data-driven, analytics-informed processes. You will leave informed, inspired and ready to get to grips with the next wave of your programme.
Plus, it’s your conference, too. Our moderator-led roundtable discussions are your chance to ask the questions you need to answer. Send feedback to the day’s agenda in real-time via interactive technology to calibrate your challenges with the peer group around you.

Data leaders from the following companies attended DataIQ Transform 2019:
Knowledge and strategy director
Transforming business value with data
Andy Day, group chief data officer, Pepper Financial Services Group
Is the secret to transforming how value is created from data and analytics to adopt a “do once, repeat often” mindset? Pepper Group is a financial services brand that is active in the acquisition space and focused on driving value from its new businesses. At the same time, it is keen to optimise how it develops its customer base and loans book.
In this session, Andy will explain how his analytics teams have been building proofs of concept for replicable models that can be transferred across territories. By focusing on analytics outputs as products, rather than one-time solutions, the goal is to discover how to have impact, add value and maintain momentum in a growth business.
Department of Health and Social Care: Data in a time of crisis
Johanna Hutchison, deputy director of analysis - Covid-19, DOHSC
Transferring to achieve a transformation does not get much more dramatic than for Johanna who was moved from her position as head of data at The Pensions Regulator to the Office of the Chief Analyst within the Government department right at the heart of the coronavirus challenge. In this session, she will talk about the data issues that needed to be resolved, the transferrable skills involved, and what outcomes may prove durable once the health crisis recedes. (Note: details of this session are likely to vary due to the ongoing work and sensitivities involved.)
Roundtable discussions: Transformational visions
11:10am Breakout Sessions
Culture and data literacy
Transforming an organisation using data and analytics goes deeper than new data services and supporting technologies - it requires ways of working and a living culture in which everybody draws on these resources as a core part of their decision-making and actions. This stream will explore how specialists and generalists across the organisation an be brought up to the same level of engagement and understanding.
Innovation with data
New data sources and solutions are coming on stream that reflect the power of “positive externalities” - economic benefits that accrue from combining and aggregating data within trusted frameworks and eco-systems. This stream will reveal the new approaches and drivers of data as a catalyst for innovation and value creation
Trust and privacy
The REaD Group
Trust is the keystone of the new data architecture among both creators (individuals and organisations) and consumers (businesses and service users). To drive economic recovery using data, respecting privacy and demonstrating transparency will be essential. This stream will explain how to strike the right balance between data protection and data monetisation.
Getting the big picture from big data
Cornelia Schaurecker, group director of big data, advanced analytics and applied AI, Vodafone
Pedro Rente Lourenco, lead researcher and data scientist, Vodafone
Earlier this year, Vodafone was about to reveal a major initiative it was behind which leveraged mobile data to help track an infectious disease, supporting NGOs tackling the outbreak. Little did any of the parties know that the global outbreak of Covid-19 would overtake them and change everything.
In this session, Cornelia and Rente will discuss the techniques that were developed and applied to the original challenge and how these proved invaluable for what happened next. Plus, they will consider what long-term lessons can be drawn about the role of mobile data and data for good.
Data strategy in the age-appropriate era
Dawn Hemingway, head of data, NSPCC
For a charity with such a critical and sensitive mission, doing the right thing with data is essential. As it completes its current strategy plan, NSPCC has had to review key aspects of the data strategy in the light of the ICO’s Age Appropriate Design Code. The result of its workshops and reviews has been to develop its data literacy, placing the organisation in a stronger place and creating a new basis for the next round of strategic planning.
In this session, Dawn will explain how the “slow burn” of a digital transformation gained added heat through being forced to examine the charity’s core values and how these were being met across its data activities. As it embarks on a new phase, she will explain how data literacy is now getting baked into the organisation.
Roundtable discussions: Transformational pathways
A journey towards a data-driven digital future
Gary Goldberg, chief data officer, integrated supply and trading, BP
BP’s integrated supply and trading (IST) organisation is the world’s largest commodity trading business. In 2019, we announced plans for our IST of the future. In February 2020, the BP Group announced a set of digitally-led ambitions and carbon-neutral targets. This created both opportunities and challenges for the CDO Office.
This presentation will focus on the journey to transform a high-performing traditional business into a data-driven digital business. We’ll look at the specific challenges (cultural, capabilities, strategic alignment), the opportunities and lessons learned along the way.
DataIQ Awards winner showcase
The closing session of the event will feature a presentation from the winner of a major category at the 2020 DataIQ Awards. They will talk through the work which garnered them recognition and how they have led a transformation of their organisation through applied data and analytics. (Note: As the DataIQ Awards are presented on 20th September, details of this session will be revealed nearer the date.)
