Last night, the Consolidata team ventured to the MontCalm Hotel in Shoreditch and hosted a ‘big data’ themed evening.
It was an informal evening for our current and prospective partners to network and discuss data science and big data with the Consolidata team.
We were lucky to be accompanied by Professor Mark Whitehorn of University of Dundee, who captivated us with real-life case studies where big data has given companies a competitive advantage. He even shared with us: the latest NoSQL and big data technologies; the distinctions between normal data analytics and big data; and even where big data presents no significant advantage at all, giving our attendees a more complete picture of what big data really is.
The evening was extremely successful and we have received a lot of positive comments from those who came. Thank you to all of those who did come – we hope to see you at any upcoming Consolidata events in the future!
