Dear Colleagues

Apologies for multiple postings.

Oxford Retail Futures Conference
Big Data, Business Intelligence and real-time analytics in retail
9th-10th December, 2013, Saïd Business School, University Oxford
Retail is one of the first sectors to have employed large datasets at strategic and operational levels for a variety of purposes, such as marketing, store location, product selection, and customer profiling. However, the latest advances in Business Intelligence, the concepts of Big Data and Open Data, are creating new opportunities and challenges for the retail sector.
The amount of data, generated by internet users, mobile devices, sensors, organisational and integrative IT systems is at a level that is unsurpassed in history. A high volume of data, in a variety of formats, can be relatively easily captured and stored, at the same time as the cost of processing is decreasing.
However, the challenge lays in how the real business value of such data can be realised and how such findings can be utilised by organisations at the strategic and operational level. This is the main focus of this Oxford Retail Futures conference.
