December Webinar


Low-code analytics is increasingly making the complex art of data science more accessible to business users. But how does an organisation go about adopting a low-code solution? In this webinar, hear Jamie Crossman-Smith, one of the leaders in Grant Thornton’s UK Digital Hub, as they share GT’s journey with KNIME (an open source, low-code tool), the challenges and benefits they have experienced so far, and how they have sought to foster greater engagement with analytics across the organisation by using low-code technology. There will be an opportunity for Q&A to discuss low-code analytics further.
