Event preview: The Information Summit

For many CIOs and IT managers, the job of installing, maintaining and upgrading technology often distracts from the ‘I’ in IT.

But is IT infrastructure is increasingly sourced from outside organisation, and the ability for business units and individual employees to source their applications and devices is growing.

If they are to contribute to the organisation in spite of these trends, IT departments must become experts at extract business value from data, documents and other content. The latest addition to Information Age’s events calendar is focused on precisely this.

Taking place on April 17th, the free event boasts an impressive roster of case study presentations.

Attendees will hear from Rob Weir, risk data manager at Lloyds Banking Group, explaining how the bank’s approach to data quality has evolved.

Saffron Prior, lead architect at AstraZeneca‘s OPAL programme, will describe how the pharmaceutical giant uses visual business intelligence to analyse its development portfolio.

Telefónica‘s head of online delivery Andrew Pattinson will explain how the company uses Agile development methods to identify the right information management technology for their business requirements.

The Press Association‘s architecture director John O’Donovan will describe how the news giant is preparing to manage its content during the 2012 Olympics.

And Simon Wibberley, head of information at Macmillan Cancer Support, will be talking about ’empowering people with great information’.
