Innovating with Data & Analytics: Building new products & Services

Hello everyone !

First of all a very happy new year to all  members, and a big welcome to all those who have joined in the last few weeks!!

We are seeing great interest in tomorrow’s event. Right now we have 60 members on waiting list! I have tried to get a bigger room in the last few days, but unfortunately there is none available. 

Looking at the popularity of our events, Google Campus has agreed to give us larger room for our next event, which will be announced tomorrow. Also, we are evaluating cheaper options of streaming for the next event. 

However,  for tomorrow’s event , I am sorry that we will miss many of our members who are still on the waiting list.

May I request all to please review their RSVPs and change it to ‘No’ if you are not attending for some reason. That will help others on the waiting list to get confirmed.

I will also share  the proceedings of tomorrow's  event in the next few days. 

Finally, here is the program for tomorrow:

• 6:00 – 6:30 PM  – Arrival, Registration, Networking• 6:30 – 7:50 PM – Introduction & Keynote 1 – Innovating with Data & Analytics : Building New Products and Services – Sarvesh Kumar,  Founder , 1 Wisdom Street Limited, Meet up  Organiser.

– Keynote 2 – 'Extreme Data: How to create new data products in minutes - not days!’ – David White, Founder & CEO, Import.IO

‘’It will concern use cases of some of Import.IO  users who have   created  entire products in days. A fun live demo!  Import•io is the ultimate tool for businesses, which allows anyone, regardless of technical ability, to acquire real-time data from the web. Data collected via import•io can be used for competitor analysis, business intelligence, lead generation, app development and database generation.

– Panel Discussion: Panelists bring diverse experience and would share interesting perspectives on leading questions on the theme.

    We had an excellent evening yesterday. I found great interest and involvement in discussions from Speakers and Attendees both, hallmark of a vibrant group engaged in building the new data economy! I have uploaded some photos I received today.

    Great event last night, many thanks Sarvesh. I was especially interested in the themes around big corporates and their exploitation (or not) of data. I work at a big corporate and we are just starting to look at using data to drive better insight (and innovation?). What struck me from the discussion last night is there seemed to be three approaches to this: (1) Create an entrepreneurial culture and just let people with the skills (e.g. data scientists) explore the data propose new products and services to take to the business. (2) Engage business customers and identify specific customer problems and come up with creative data driven solutions to their problems. (3) Focus on business model and devise new, disruptive and data driven models. I suspect a good data innovation function is a blend of all three, but it would be interesting to hear views...where should the focus be??

      Hi Andrew - it's a delicate balance of the three. By creating an entrepreneurial culture you will encourage people to engage with or think about the problems faced by your customers which can then lead to thinking through the business model side. Apologies if this sounds a little cliched - we focus on building a hypothesis to take to our customers which is in demo form. This is then assessed and the next stage of product decided... the importance of agile thinking and projects in working with data is vital. No longer can we spec out a 2 year project and hope customers or stakeholders are happy with the process... delivering value quickly leads to clearer thinking on both sides. Would be happy to chat further over coffee if you like. James

      My advise to large corporates is to set up a Data innovation function which works closely with Strategic Management and Information management functions. Business model experimentation leveraging Data needs to be built as a competence with both business model / strategy consultants and Data scientists/ analysts. Of course, there is more to it in each specific case and how to set it up and make it work. What tools, processes etc.

    Loved it so much, I decided to write a blog about it: Looking forward to another one!

    Very interesting and engaging discussion I will try to assist to more events of this group in the future. Data is the oil of the future and meetings like this give innovative ideas of how to exploit it.
