Forecasting and Data Analytics: Looking at data differently – Using technology to discover and deliver insights from secondary data

June 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm 3:40 pm

Speakers:  Kris Barker and David James, J+D Consulting

Convenor: Roy Rogers, Hall & Partners

Looking at data differently – Using technology to discover and deliver insights from secondary data

This webinar will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn how visualisation and analytical technologies, such as PowerBI, can be used to combine and analyse data sets leading to improved understanding and insights. This ultimately improves the data supporting forecasts and other critical decision-making processes. An oncology example data set will be used to illustrate this in practise and give examples of the benefits this approach can bring.

Kris and David will show the importance of being able to interrogate and challenge your data even more so during the coronavirus crisis and indeed how several companies are using this sort of intelligence and insight to facilitate a revision of their forecast models to account for the impact of COVID-19.

This is a member only event and is free to attend for members.
