Gathering Data: Opportunities for Insight

Host: University of Derby

Location: Online

Cost: FREE


What is this session about?

Whether you key data in by hand, gather data from business systems, use data sets available publicly, or use IoT sensor generated data — our data now comes from many different sources.

Each of these comes with challenges and many processes today rely on a mix of data sources. This workshop explores ways to generate data and looks at examples for integrating data from different sources. You will learn about topics such as volume, accuracy and velocity of data, providing you with an understanding of just how dynamic data is. You will also gain an insight into data storage and processing options.
