We had a massive, unprecedented demand for the event. We don't have capacity at the event to squeeze in any more people.
We will need to turn away people who do not have a valid ticket, so we would not recommend turning up.

Business Data now and future: interacting with data to drive the business, at the velocity of the business. 

This is a first for PASS in Europe. The event is targeted at Business Analytics and Business Intelligence professionals who use Excel daily in their job to analyse and present their data, and who are interested in knowing more about analytical features in Excel, Big Data, Azure Machine Learning, Hadoop, R and SQL Server Business Intelligence.

Keynote Announcement: Data Culture : From BI & Analytics to Big Data and Data Science with Jonathan Woodward, Microsoft UK’s Business Lead for BI, Analytics, Big Data and Data Science


In this mobile-first, cloud-first era – data is at the intersection – with apps, devices and sensors creating tremendous volumes of data.  To get value out of that data, we must be able to reason over it, tap into processing power to quickly analyze it and accelerate the insights, which ultimately lead to better decisions, actions and business results. Companies that put data at the heart of their business operations outperform those that don’t by a significant margin, which we call releasing the ‘Data Dividend’.  We will take a walk through the key technologies from PowerBI to AzureML and IoT to show how to start driving your Data Culture.

Jon Woodward is Microsoft UK’s Business Lead for BI, Analytics, Big Data and Data Science


We recognise that these topics are new to a lot of people and we are looking to help a broad range of people who are interested in these topics, but primarily use Excel every day and want to know how to use it better with these technologies and business analytics in mind. We encourage speaker submissions that discuss the above topics and technologies, business analytics as well as business intelligence, in the areas and technologies devised above.

This event will be held Nov 22 2014 at Innovation Warehouse, 1 East Poultry Avenue, LONDON, EC1A 9PT, United Kingdom. Admittance to this event is free, all costs are covered by donations and sponsorships. Please register soon as seating is limited, and let friends and colleagues know about the event.
