UK’s top data leaders revealed

DataIQ's listed the top 100 most influential people in UK data-driven businesses.

By James Nunns

DataIQ has released this year’s Big Data 100, a list of the most influential people in UK data-driven businesses.

The top ten list included names from some of the UK’s biggest companies such as James Morgan, director of management information at British Gas, and Adam Williamson, head of customer data strategy and analytics at British Airways.

Coming out on top was Julia Porter, director of consumer revenues at Guardian News and Media, who also happened to be one of those hosting the event at the Kensington Roof Gardens.

Adrian Gregory, chief executive of DataIQ, said: "Following the success of last years’ programme, it gives me great pleasure to once again showcase the individuals who are making extraordinary strides in the field of data innovation."

"Most ambitious and successful businesses today recognise data like brands as a valuable business and use it to drive business strategy. The people honoured today are the big data power players who we believe possess the most influence, profile, experience and knowledge to keep driving business growth."

"These are the people who, with the explosion of data sources in recent years, understand how to harness their data assets and importantly move along the continuum of best practice data capture, to intelligence and ultimately to drive profitable actions."

The list was compiled by DataIQ under the criteria of recognising those with the greatest regulatory powers, industry contribution and influence, data privacy best practice and innovation in digital and mobile.
