Every industry, every organization, and every department is undergoing a huge change as they harness data to impact their businesses—whether they realize it or not. Many businesses are successfully leveraging new platform technologies to transform their organization using data. Whether they are renovating their existing infrastructure for substantial cost savings or innovating their architecture to find new business opportunities, the impact is undeniable. Louise Matthews covers industry trends and transformative business use cases, including Centrica and Royal Mail, drawn from a wide range of market sectors across Europe to bring the future of data to life.

This session is sponsored by Hortonworks.
