The last mile – connecting front line data to drive an intelligent enterprise
In this session we will explore the challenges and opportunities of connecting the insights we can gain from innovative new technologies into an intelligent enterprise. Across all sectors organisations have blind spots, areas where either the lack of available data or the time lag between capturing and turning it into actionable insight.
We will be joined by Daryn Edgar, CEO of LYTT a tech start up backed by BP who is pioneering well based analytics and insights through ground breaking use of fibre optics.
Our panel will share their experiences of how organisations are leveraging last mile technologies to drive rapid business decisions, creating a connected intelligent enterprise allowing them to drive performance.
