What has data got to do with your growth ambitions?


What has data got to do with your growth ambitions?

Join us for a breakfast event that will explore the relationship between data and connectivity speeds and the power they have in helping you to boost your growth ambitions.

Data is there to empower us, sharpen up our choices and brighten up our world. We are all connected and 1000 miles of cables power every single email and conference call across the world.

Data can not only be used as a tool to foster innovation, it can give you the scale and scope to compete on a global stage.

The ability to move large volumes of data nationally and internationally at high speed is an advantage when operating in a highly competitive marketplace. It’s not just about productivity within the four walls of an office, its about connecting with clients and suppliers from all over the world.

Connectivity and data ecosystems are increasingly a major consideration for businesses when looking to expand or relocate, with a growing number of back office centres and tech hubs moving out of London. It’s not just a cost factor, it’s the drive for talent and digital infrastructure that the Northern Powerhouse Cities like Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle are delivering that is influencing location decisions.

Home to the National Innovation Centre for Data and the fastest growing tech sector in England, Newcastle’s data experts come together to share insights and to discuss this growing trend with the audience. We will also welcome a representative from Stellium Datacentres, who will talk about the North Atlantic Loop and how it is delivering transatlantic connectivity through a dedicated subsea fibre optic network. They will be joined by data analysis firm, Gavurin –  who will discuss how connectivity provides businesses with a competitive advantage and the importance of data in allowing clients to make strategic decisions.

On the cusp of the 4th Industrial Revolution, we ask ‘How is digital connectivity fostering growth?’

If you are looking to expand or grow this event will discuss why data and connectivity should be at the top of your list.
