You'll then have the opportunity to pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members, or join a team whose idea you want to work on. The remainder of the weekend will be spent developing the concepts, interrogating the data, building proof of concepts and delivering a solid pitch to support it. Finally, you'll get the opportunity to present to industry experts who will judge your proposal. Happy to support you! At Project:Hack 15 there will be tons of support. Data scientists, PowerBI experts and subject matter experts will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch. Computer science students are also welcome.

untilRegister here - Getting Started in Project Data Analytics, A Real World Experience | Meetup Project data analytics is starting to accelerate, but how are organisations implementing it. Is the answer to centralise the skills within a centre of excellence, to federate them across the business or a blended approach. Will we have dedicated teams of project analysts/data scientists or will it be embedded into everyone’s role. What types of skills do we need? Within this panel session each panel member will give a short summary of their approach to project data analytics within their business, then we will explore: • How do they layer the skills across the business, from superusers through to occasional users. • How do they govern roll out of capabilities, ensuring a degree of control whilst promoting innovation. • How are they tackling the issue of data quality, availability etc? How does a central vs federated team influence this? • How are you managing data engineering? Is this embedded in IT or have you broken it out? • What advice would you give to an organisation grappling with upskilling existing domain expertise vs employing 100% analysts? • Are organisations ready for a crack team of data science ninjas or are we lacking the data? “The Digital Construction and Innovation journey of VolkerWessels UK” We will be sharing our digital transformation journey and our Tomorrow Now programme with you and our vision to become a company which is powered by data and driven by people. We will reveal more about our digital strategy and how we have progressed on our digital roadmap. In addition, we will showcase how we have created our Power BI network and how we have encouraged the use of citizen development to drive a data-driven culture. We will also give you the opportunity to quiz us on how have approached information management, virtual construction and construction logistics.
