Big data - seeing the wider picture at Onyx

Have your say

A national provider of IT infrastructure is staging an event in the Sheffield City Region to show businesses how best to get the most out of data.

‘Big Data: Intelligence and Infrastructure’ is being organised by Rotherham’s Onyx Group and Manvers-based Microsoft SharePoint specialist Biz-ICT.

It aims to give companies the power to exploit the vast amount of data that flows through their business without the need for in-house intelligence experts or expensive systems.

The free event, on September 9, 9am to 12pm, is at Onyx’s state-of-the art data centre in Rotherham and will include a tour of the facility, an open forum to discuss business needs and a networking lunch.

Neil Stephenson, chief executive of Onyx Group, which employs over 120 countrywide and is in its 20th year, said: “Most organisations have many years of historical data that is strategically and tactically valuable. The wider question is how to manage that ‘Big Data’ for the long-term benefit of the business.”
