Seminar Presented by S3

Actionable Insight from your Data … by Joining it up & using Advanced Analytics

Data is the new natural resource – we’re all facing data overload. In many instances, it’s in different systems, doesn’t have a structure that computers can understand to allow people to search it intuitively and there’s so much of it, it’s hard to make any sense of it. This session will concentrate on some innovative techniques to solve all three problems, whilst at the same time providing politically acceptable ways for organisations to share data to improve outcomes. We will describe the technology, in easy to understand terms and then describe a couple of real use cases delivering results today in the UK.

  • Automating the joining up of data from different systems, and even different public sector organisations whilst meeting data protection guidelines
  • Examples of real solutions, to exploit this joined up data: Tackling child exploitation, sharing across police & local authority using predictive analytics
  • Using Analytics to automate searching hours of CCTV, Body Worn & Social Media video

Speaker: Mark Goossens, Client Director, Home Office & Police, IBM
