"The Datas" - Recognizing leadership in creating value from data
To gain a competitive advantage, business and technology leaders are generating new value from their organization's often under-utilised data.
Rosslyn Data Technologies recently organized a day-long event, in central London, for its clients and partners where attendees discussed and shared their challenges and successes of turning data into real commercial value.
It was also a moment of accolades. The Rosslyn Data Technologies team hosted an awards ceremony, recognizing individuals and teams doing amazing things, often for the first time, with data.
