    Data Retail Trends and the Pandemic

    Data Retail Trends and the Pandemic

    The retail industry is undergoing some radical changes right now, and one of the biggest trends to come out of it has been the rise of data in retail – or rather, how retailers are collecting, using, and selling their customers’ personal data. That’s why we’re here to talk about the most important trends in data retail that happened during Covid over the last 18 months. Learn about these trends, what they mean for your business, and how you can capitalise on them! 
    Where are we seeing these data trends?
    Speaking with retailers, you’ll find that a pandemic-like mentality has taken hold—it’s the hottest thing in town. The question isn’t whether or not to adopt data, but how to do it well. And, unfortunately, poor data quality is one of their biggest challenges.

    Azure Digital Transformation podcast (with Michael Brehony from Microsoft)

    Azure Digital Transformation podcast (with Michael Brehony from Microsoft)

    The construction industry has seen some interesting use cases and case studies when it comes to the role of data. Michael Brehony, Azure Specialist – Data & AI at Microsoft, discusses sustainability as a focus area for these innovations, not just in construction but across many industries.

    Companies are now starting to take more responsibility for their impact on each other and the planet. Striving for low-cost or no-cost solutions to offset the environmental or social impacts of their activities.

    One example industry discussed in the podcast is construction, which is historically considered as high impact. Here the opportunity to harness IoT technologies to optimise building materials or to move to pre-fabricated, offsite, construction is being strongly considered by many organisations. Thus creating less social and environmental impact on-site.

    Join Michael and Justin, Coeo's CEO, as they explore the plethora of benefits around how Azure Digital Transformation can benefit your company, regardless of the industry.
    One Resource that Michael recommends for you to take a look at is Microsoft Learn. Here you can find 'hands on' resources to help you on any Microsoft topic.

    Data in Financial Services and Insurance (with James Ryder)

    Data in Financial Services and Insurance (with James Ryder)

    The financial services industry - including insurance and asset management - is undergoing a shift towards seeing data as an asset and embracing cloud technology. The Covid-19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst for these changes as organisations have been forced to adapt to a new way of working.

    James Ryder - Principal Client Manager for Coeo's Financial Services team - and Justin Langford discuss recent trends they have seen within finance organisations.

    James said:  "If we look at some of the retailers that are offering financial services products, retail has always been very experience-led. So it's about creating that rich customer experience and we, as consumers, expect that.
    "So, as a consumer of insurance, why shouldn't I have that seamless experience where the insurer understands me as a customer? We have higher expectations these days and that's only going to continue as we move forward."
