'The Future of Data'?

Every year we ask our delegates to feedback to us what they would like to hear about at our next Workshop. Last year we received an overwhelming request for talks and case studies which look at the future.

As we all find ourselves in a period of unprecedented change, we all have to adapt, seek out new ways of working, embrace new technologies and change the way that we think about our industry. Data used to be the domain of experts and was something that the IT department, computer 'techie' or perhaps the GIS specialist dealt with. The reality now is that we are all data users, data consumers and, in some way, data experts.

Data volumes have exploded, data security has become a common threat and data sources are wide, varied and changing all the time. So what does the marine data of the future look like and how is it shaping how we do business, how we work and interact with one another and how do we ensure that we 'keep up' with the pace of change?

During this workshop we hope to bring together a range of speakers, specialists and experts from in an around the marine industry to present their take on "The Future of Marine Data".

We are currently building the speaker programme so watch this space for updates. To get involved, please contact us.
