In this video from Computer Weekly's 2016 UKtech50 event, Giles Pavey, former chief data scientist, Dunnhumby, talks about the importance of big data in firms and shares his five tips for innovation.
As part of the UKtech50 presentations, speakers were asked to share either five great ideas for innovation or their top five great ideas for leadership.
The aim of the UKtech50 was to identify the 50 most influential leaders in UK IT. An expert judging panel representing every aspect of the IT profession helped decide the results, along with a reader vote, to determine who holds the most influence over the future of the UK tech sector in the next 12 months – and the future of IT professionals across the country.
The winner, voted as the most influential person in UK IT for 2016, was Simon Segars, chief executive of ARM.
