February Business Breakfast in association with the Irish Examiner
Cork Chamber will once again partner with the Chartered Accountants Cork Society to bring you “Demystifying Data” a breakfast event that will help you to find valuable insights in your data through analysis.
All businesses have plenty of data at their fingertips, but learning how to analyse and utilise this data is a mystery to most of us. This event will help you to see and understand the data that you have worked hard to build up over the years.
We are delighted to have Jason Burns, IBM and Yvonne Holmes, AIB as our guest speakers. On the day we will also have some key case studies, who will bring their experience of data analytics to life and help you gain insight into how data can work for your business.
Jason Burns has had a variety of roles within the IT sector beginning in software development as a technical writer, then progressing to team management positions before finally gaining his PMP qualification and moving into a variety of project management roles. Since joining IBM, Jason has spent several years working in the data and analytics arena, covering data warehousing, business intelligence through to advanced analytics solutions - helping customers make the most of their data to help drive the business growth.
