Vodafone speaking at Big Data London

We are delighted to announce that Sean Francis is speaking at Big Data London on 13 November in the Governance and MDM theatre at 2.30pm. He will be speaking about building data excellence.

Like many businesses Vodafone UK Finance have been on a journey with regards to combining data to drive insight. This talk is a real world case study of the team’s 3 year journey to integrate new systems whilst maintaining legacy, bringing it all together and deciding how to generate useful and trustworthy insights. Sean will describe the many challenges en route, especially around building and demonstrating trust in the analytical outputs. This has required a more back to basics approach but has enabled control and are now working on a more integrated and innovative approach, combining process, behaviours and technology.

Sean describes himself as a ‘datamonkey,’ who has spent a career delivering and managing business change through the use of data and its application. He has helped lead the charge in Vodafone BI and at BSI, driving transformational change through the application of technology and data. As a BI Manager in Vodafone UK Finance, he is responsible for ensuring that data is carefully managed and readily accessible throughout the delivery and key operational processes, whilst also assuring it’s quality.
