Taking advantage of the fact that we are going to enjoy some well-deserved days of rest and relaxation, we want to propose a series of reflections.
It is very common for all of us to fill our mouths with words in which almost everything fits: innovation, digitalization, big data, data is the new oil, etc. They are words that sound very good in almost any context. And many times, they sound good because, like bells, they are empty of content.
What is the situation of your company / department regarding the data? Do you collect all the information you need? Does it respond to your needs? Is it useful to measure, make decisions and check improvements? Or on the contrary, are you wasting resources and opportunities ?.
Our experience tells us that there is no company that cannot embark on this journey towards improving decision-making based on data. And that there are no companies so advanced that they are not susceptible to take advantage of everything they must keep improving.
Is it time to change the way you manage and make decisions? The best moment is now, it is the only one we have. And even the longest journey begins with a simple step. If you want, we help give it to.
A fantastic next step can be to call us for a meeting. And another big step can be to register (or someone from your team) to the program of the DBS & Icade “Big Data and Business” that begins next April 20 at the headquarters of the DBS in Madrid. 4This program is aimed at managers and middle managers (non-technologists). In the following link you can find all the information.
As always, below we leave you some articles that we hope will provoke new ideas and reflections about the data..
“What is not defined cannot be measured. What is not measured cannot be improved. What is not improved, always degrades. ”. Lord Kelvin

On the 16th we are part of the round table at the event “What can Big Data do for me? And for my company? Organized by the Universities of ICADE and Deusto Business School. During the event, we reviewed the concepts and basic tools for the Big Data analysis and the incorporation of new sources of information to make decisions based on advanced analytics. During the interesting debate, Mercedes López García (strategy and CEO of Santander Spain) and Oswaldo Lorenzo (professor of the DBS) also participated.
We attended the Big Data to Action event, the second edition of the forum aimed at Big Data, Business Analytics and Business Intelligence professionals. This year, the forum was structured around four thematic axes: Analytics, IoT & Smart Cities, Cybersecurity and Artificial and Cognitive Intelligence. They addressed, among others, issues such as technological disruption in cities, the organization of cybercrime, the reality of the 4th ‘industrial revolution’ or Customer Advance Analytics
During the month of March, and within the Bind 4.0 program, we have attended different training sessions with recognized professionals in the field of technology such as Barack Berkowitz (advisor and technology expert within the MIT Media Lab), Gonzalo Martínez de Azagra (responsible for investments and expert in technology strategy of Samsung) and Erika Merz (specialist in Industry 4.0, in Kemmler + Merz). These are high level sessions in which to continue debating and learning about the enormous transformation that is the industry 4.0. and the challenges posed by the development of a start-up.
Helena Torras (founder of B-Wom, Counselor in various star-up and mentor in Wayra), explained in a lively presentation the life cycle in the field of financing a start-up, how and where to find investors, the key points when preparing your pitch before them and knowing the terminology they handle.
inally, we came out in the newspaper Expansión explaining how participating in discussion forums with other companies has allowed us to strengthen DeciData’s approach and have a clearer strategy on how to deal with the challenges that arise as a start-up.
