DataIQ Future Conference | 19 October | County Hall, London

These forward-thinkers have their heads in the future but their feet in the present. 

Unlike hypothetically-focused events, DataIQ Future 2017 demonstrates what's happening with data now in real-time - and how the outcomes are already shaping our future. 

These speakers aren't theoretical about futuristic landscapes or fear-mongering over robot takeovers. They aren't gazing into the future.

They're influencing it. They're working on the real ideas which are being developed now to add genuine business value to the future of their organisations and changing society forever.  

You'll learn the applicable and pragmatic strategies which are increasing business value today, and discover invaluable insight into the key product and service developments which are transforming organisations through their ability to access, analyse and monetise data.

Themes: everybody, everything, everywhere

Pervasive data will very soon be a reality. The widespread adoption of connected devices, the shift from owning to leasing, provision of tools as-a-service - all of these trends generate data which has the potential to transform business models and unleash economic growth. 

Come and learn the near-term developments from the practitoners and pioneers who are actually implementing these transformations on the ground, and discover how they will affect


Digital Life

Consumers realise an increasing amount of their needs and desires online. New platforms and services are innovating to support an expanding range of activities. For incumbent providers and physical world rivals, identifying these behaviours and ingesting the data they produce requires significant transformation. This session will hear from both sides of this digital data coin with Matt Jefferies, group director, insight, analytics & CRM, Global Media.

Physical Life

Daily life can be optimised, whether it is through more efficient energy consumption or by receiving individual level insurance premium on the back of telematics. For utilities, insurers and network providers, the future offers an opportunity to build premium propositions on top of their commodity services. John Hutchins, head of connected home at EDF Energy bluelab and Helen Mannion, head of BI at giffgaff, will explain where they expect to find opportunities.

Product Life

From the new generation of connected devices through to connected cars, the Internet of Things is being realized right in front of us. The opportunities for manufacturers, and retailers are significant, if they can convince consumers to adopt smart devices and agree to share the data which is generated by them. Ozgur Tohumcu, CEO of Tantalum and Marcin Druzkowski, senior data scientist at Ocado Technology will reveal how this is possible.

Social Life 

Convergence between health and wellbeing at a data level is being targeted by a new generation of service providers. At the same time, public policy and public spaces are adopting data and analytics to architect improvements in social life for all. Two practitioners will describe their visions for how the world we all inhabit and our physical selves will be impacted.
