The Annual Analytics Summit 2017

From Data to Decisions

The Annual Analytics Summit 2017

Thursday 15 June 2017

IET London,
Savoy Place, London WC2R OBL

Bought to you by the OR Society, in association with the Royal Statistical Society, the Annual Analytics Summit brings together speakers and exhibitors from the very cutting edge of analytics to deliver a one-day event that is a one-stop shop for learning about how big data & analytics are shaping the future of organisational decision making. Filled with case studies, new innovations, and strategies on how to turn data to effective decisions the Annual Analytics Summit is an event not to be missed. So join us on the 15 June 2017 and keep up to date by visiting us here or on Twitter (#TAAS17).

The aim of this event is to demonstrate, by way of case examples, how developments in analytics are leading to increased competitive advantage. The programme will present case studies in the morning that will be business-relevant and highlight the value creation opportunities of analytics. Delegates will benefit from tutorial sessions in the afternoon that will relate to the morning talks by exploring in more detail particular techniques or methodologies mentioned.

Speakers will represent a broad spectrum of sectors that can benefit from advanced analytics. The programme is intended to raise awareness of applications and techniques that will inspire delegates to think about decision making in their organisation.

The Annual Analytics Summit 2017 takes place at IET London, Savoy Place, London WC2R OBL
on 15th June 2017, from 09:15 to 17:00. Registration opens at 08:30 with tea and coffee available.

Places cost £125 + VAT (Early bird rate until 15th May 2017, £175 + VAT thereafter) to include refreshments and buffet lunch.

Take a look at information on the Annual Analytics Summit 2017 website for more information.

Main Speakers

Charles Kennelly,CTO at ESRI (UK)

ESRI build ArcGIS, the most powerful mapping software in the world. It connects people with maps, data, and apps through geographic information systems (GIS). It is a location platform that’s accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Charles’ talk will cover a variety of aspects of spatial analytics and use of GIS for Big Data, Spatial Data Science and Operational Research. This will include the machine learning aspects of ArcGIS and related case studies to demonstrate impact.

Charles has worked in the GIS industry for 26 years, starting life as a digitiser and working through the various aspects of the industry. Initially in local government and latterly with Esri UK, Charles has been involved in the design, development, deployment and management of a number of successful GI systems. Now working as the CTO for Esri UK, Charles specialises in finding ways of making GIS accessible to ordinary users in wide-ranging environments, from consumer mapping to enterprise and business critical systems.

Claire Thompson, Head of Customer Analytics at Royal Bank of Scotland
Accountable for leading a team 50 analysts, in multiple locations both onshore and offshore, to deliver actionable insight and customer decision support for Commercial and Private Banking. Main areas of responsibility include big data, digital, and next best action analytics to enhance customer experience, improve operational efficiency, identify new opportunities and create competitive advantage.



Jonathan Roberts, Head of Data Science Hub at Ministry of Justice

Jon is head of the Data Science Hub at MoJ. A multi-disciplinary team of around 20 ‘Data Scientists’ with a remit to bring use the wide ranging data science toolkit to solve some of MoJ thorniest problems.

Jon has worked in government for over 10 years in Home Office, DECC and MoJ. He is passionate about using analysis to make better decisions and has worked in wide ranging policy and operational areas, from leading analysis on changes to Sentencing Framework introduced in the LASPO Bill to providing analysis to underpin UK negotiations on EU 2030 renewables targets.

The Ministry of Justice is overhauling our approach to the use, interrogation and visualisation of data as part of a drive to become more ‘data driven’, bringing analytics into the heart of decision making.  We are creating a series of interactive dashboards and analytical tools to allow analysts, the public, operational and policy colleagues as well as senior officials to interrogate our data, generate insight and communicate results in a more intuitive and interactive way than traditional approaches.

We have published two dashboards (!/) which focus on Crown and Family courts, and allow the user to investigate performance in the justice system, yielding surprising insights into what’s happening in courts around the country.  This supports our drive to make our published data more accessible than the pdf documents and CSV files we currently publish.  

Building on these successes and appetite to empower analysts and non-analysts to generate insight from our data we are building more internal dashboards, currently covering departmental finance, HR, and operational performance. We have also started to link the Tableau dashboards to an R backend, allowing us to integrate advanced analytics like cluster analysis on the fly, within our performance dashboards.

In this talk we will present case studies from the dashboards, and discuss how they represent a completely new way of using business analytics and data visualisation to be more transparent and drive improvements in the Justice System and MoJ more widely.
