Enterprise Data - Culture, Strategy or both?

Everyone has data on their agenda, from Board and Exec to IT department, Marketing and Finance. Never before have their been so many shiny terms to describe it all, Data Science, Big Data, Machine Learning and AI. A lot of what's branded new has been around for decades, but what has changed is the pay-as-you-go access to the technology, speed, scale and accessability of it all.

Three words for you to remember, refer and earn!

Good morning from the Metatec office. We've had such a diverse and busy week networking and meeting new customers, that I find myself writing my blog entry with a little happy smile. When you put yourself out there and take the leap into running your own business, every success feels fantastic and gives you the drive to go further and further to find unique ways to attract positive attention to you. With that free-thinking spirit in mind we have launched a new Refer Metatec and Earn scheme!
