How Data Storytelling Can Enhance the Way You Communicate

Data visualization is one thing, but communicating your message effectively is another. Using narratives, and stories, is a key way to add structure, messages and conclusions to the insights you discover. In this seminar, Andy Cotgreave will outline why stories are so important in data communication. He will look at 7 different types of data story, and conclude by looking at some of the trends in storytelling. In order to enhance his own story, expect lots of examples from industry and data journalism!

  • Analytics in the Cloud Dec 7 2016 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Natalino Busa, Head of Applied Data Science at Teradata
    Today, data is everywhere. As more data streams into cloud-based systems, the combination of data and computing resources gives us today the unprecedented opportunity to perform very sophisticated data analysis and to explore advanced machine learning methods such as deep learning.

    Clouds pack very large amount of computing and storage resources, which can be dynamically allocated to create powerful analytical environments. By accessing those analytics clusters of machines, data analysts and data scientists can quickly evaluate more hypotheses and scenarios in parallel and cost-effectively.

    The number of analytical tools which is supported on various clouds is increasing by the day. The list of analytical tools spans from traditional rdms databases as provided by vendors to analytics open sources projects such as Hadoop Hive, Spark, H2O. Next to provisioning tools and solutions on the cloud, managed services for Data Science, Big Data and Analytics are becoming a popular offering of many clouds.

    Analytics in the cloud provides whole new ways for data analysts, data scientists and business developer to interact with each other, share data and experiments and develop relevant insight towards improved business processes and results. In this talk, I will describe a number of data analytics solutions for the cloud and how they can be added to your current cloud and on-premise landscape.

    Richard Neale, EMEA Director, Birst
    Listen to our interview at Big Data LDN with Richard Neale, EMEA Director at Birst.

    Companies have embraced the concept of the data lake or data hub to serve their data storage and data-driven application needs. However, gaps remain in the maturity and capability of the Hadoop stack, leaving organisations struggling with how to reap the benefits of these data lakes and how to create analytic applications that deliver value to end users.

    For data lakes to succeed, organisations need to learn and understand the differences between these big data scenarios:
    1. Data discovery and exploratory analysis
    2. Analytic applications and operationalisation of analytics across the enterprise

    Richard will examine these two scenarios, where and when each one is appropriate, and how to mature from one to the other..
