About 50 students, alumni, and community members gathered on Strathclyde Business School UAE’s Abu Dhabi campus for a ‘Big Data Analytics’ evening talk on June 25, 2013. The seminar was held to address the enigma and utility of big data for modern managers, and was delivered by Strathclyde’s own Dr Matthew Revie. Matthew, based in Strathclyde’s Department of Management Science, has extensive experience providing decision support and continuing professional development to a wide range of organizations.
Over the course of Tuesday’s two-hour community lecture, Matthew provided insights on how big data can be used and the various considerations that should be kept in mind when trying to successfully implement big data analytics strategically and meaningfully within an organization. He then stuck around to answer questions from audience members, encouraging those with applicable concerns in their own workplaces to get in touch after the seminar.
Captivating case studies and straightforward non-technical dissections of the features, techniques, benefits, and complexities of big data analytics allowed this evening talk to successfully demystify this important topic in a way that was both enlightening and useful for the forward thinking managers in attendance.
