Data, disruption and the digital network

Network Theatre

The digitalisation of networks and assets is making huge volumes of data available to operators which, with the help of analytics could enable transformations in efficiency, performance and cost reductions. This seminar will explore what good looks like for the operation of a digital, data-driven network and consider key aspects of how to achieve the most value from data available from networks today.
