Kindly supported by Aareon UK, Aico, Capita One, FireAngel and IntoZetta, Housing Technology hosted ‘Data Matters 2022’ at The British Museum in central London in mid-September, with a brilliant turn-out of around 100 guests for our new one-day event focused exclusively on all aspects of data within social housing.
Golding Homes (Anna Marie Lawrence-Lovell) opened the event with a talk on the importance of data quality followed by Aareon (Jack McLean) on zero-party data and One Housing (Tariq Bhatti) on ‘fight club for data’ relating to data governance.
Capita One (Glenn Allan) covered how to use data to automate building management and maintain regulatory compliance, with Optivo (Robert Stewart) on the vital role of data in its merger with Southern Housing and FireAngel (Nick Rutter) covering smart homes and IoT.
IntoZetta (Dan Yarnold and David Bamford) then co-hosted an interactive discussion with Southern Housing (Nicole Brosnan) and Shaw Consulting (Chris Shaw) on the consequences of poor housing data, followed by Aico (Simon Flint) on the importance of APIs and data integration, and Sanctuary Housing (Priyanka Kakkar) on assessing your data management maturity.
Data Matters 2022 closed with a brilliant talk from Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton (author, firefighter and psychologist) on how to make better decisions under pressure, based on her life-threatening experiences in the emergency services.
Based on the success of our inaugural Data Matters event, we expect to run Data Matters 2023 next September (date and location tbc); please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
