Details

Having been a technology partner with the Tour de France for 4 years, Dimension Data have been pivotal in transforming how the Tour de France is viewed, and how diverse fans and viewers interact with the event. They’ve used the data to tell better stories and are now changing the way data is used to predict outcomes, with 71% accuracy in predicting the daily top 5 rider predictions. They are also working towards the concept of an 'audience of one’ with views and data tailored to the specific demands of the people. They will be running us through their approach to data science and analytics, how things evolved since their 1st Tour in 2015, how they went about it, insights into their current capabilities and how this adds value to the fans, teams and sponsors. Wayne will also be delving into the challenges they had to overcome and how they did it, successes and failures and how much further they can take it.

They will then be reading all of this across to the world of project management and providing insights into the art of the possible, challenges and advice on implementation.
