Data is dormant unless it can be structured and scaled to release insights and drive actions.

In a competitive market where relevance and timeliness can be game changing, speed of insights is crucial! Two key ways of doing this fast and cost effectively are:
- Running analytics in the cloud to solve scale and capacity problems, and
- The use of custom data warehouses which solves issues of disparate data sources, input and outputs formats

Don’t miss great case studies from two companies who have made such solutions part of their daily business.

Tyrone McAuley, Technical Director & Co-Founder of PikPok, will discuss how they ventured into the Big Data and Analytics spaces to better understand the play and purchase behaviour of their customers. Tyrone will discuss the organisational transformations required and include detail on how they collect, process, structure and analyse large daily data sets in the cloud in a mobile gaming context. He will also cover:
- A case study on collecting and transforming large volumes of player behavioural data in the cloud
- Associated Big Data organisational challenges focusing on changes to process, structure, tools and technology.

Perry Sansom, Director of Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa from WhereScape shows us three examples of how their flexible and agile data warehousing tools empower in-house practitioners and data scientists to merge all data and rapidly deliver BI insights specified by the end user.

Critical to BI platforms is the need for:
- A faster, more efficient iterative development environment that is purpose built to handle change
- A collaborative approach where speed of delivery continues to engage business users who provide critical feed-back to solution designers using real data
- Best-of-breed standards that automatically support “best practice” data models by design
- Acceleration and automation of standard BI processes allowing the practitioner to focus on the design.
- Auto generation of documentation, critical for successful business adoption and support
- Flexibility for change management with integrated meta-data foundation to support continuous change and impact analysis.
