    Jakub Augustín, Big Data Competency Lead, Adastra

    Come with us to a logistics center or a huge warehouse with thousands of shelves, tens of thousands and possibly hundreds of thousands of kinds of goods and tens of forklift. How to ensure its optimal functioning? How to make its operation even more efficient? We will install sensors in the logistics center to obtain a wealth of useful information. We will monitor the movement of forklifts and other objects, check the status of stocks and the receipt or shipment of goods, and monitor the security of selected zones. In the live demo, we will show and explain on-site what sensor data we collect, how we can use it, and how information can be delivered to users using dashboards or applications. We will also introduce to you our IoT data processing platform. Finally, we will discuss how a particular forklift example can be used in fields other than logistics.

    Increase the success of acquisition campaigns by 100% thanks to analytics of external big data

    Zdeněk Demeter, Big Data & Analytics Business Manager, Bisnode

    It is becoming increasingly difficult to ensure the continuous growth of trade regardless of the business sector. Acquisition of new B2B customers is becoming more costly, the willingness of merchants to make cold calls is decreasing, and the effectiveness of getting positive leads through classic call centers or online campaigns usually does not meet our expectations. The trend of the recent years in Western Europe as well as in the Czech Republic is the involvement of data specialists in the search for new business opportunities. By combining internal and external data from publicly available sources, these data specialists are able to identify companies that are most likely to be interested in a product or service. Zdeněk will present selected analytical projects from the financial and automotive industry, which helped to increase the success of acquisition call campaigns by more than 100%.

    The big truth about our diets and big data on the menu

    Tomáš Pětivoký, CEO, Dine4Fit

    Zdeněk Skála, Client Service Director Retail & FMCG, GfK

    On the web and in the application, hundreds of thousands of Czech users monitor their intakes of energy, nutrients and caloric expenditure. Every month, another 10 million records of food consumed, ranging from "tap water" to branded packaged foods, pop up. Information about purchases, sales, media and online behavior is already, as a standard, available on the market. But it is said that love passes through the stomach - and here we have, uniquely and for the first time, robust data on consumers and their eating habits. What will this data tell us about categories and brands? And what image will show us the target group of people who have decided to address the improvement of their diets and thus behave in a modern way?
