Overview: 

 

Registrations are now open for Data Leadership 2014, the flagship conference of the UK’s leading business-technology magazine, Information Age. The event takes place on 30 October 2014 in Central London.

Data Leadership is the thinking person's big data event, for senior IT executives who are not drawn into hype, but do recognise opportunities. They already understand big data and don't need another event to tell them what it is.

Instead, they're now interested in becoming leaders in generating business value from data. This includes looking at the subject from an analytics and intelligence angle, but also from an infrastructure and transformation perspective, strategy and innovation, and security and governance.

This 360 view of how to approach data in the enterprise gained much praise at last year’s Data Leadership conference, and Information Age is delighted to announce its return with an esteemed programme of speakers.
