ETOT Data Management Workshop
We were invited to run one of the technology workshops at the 8th Annual Energy Trading Operations & Technology Summit (ETOT) which took place last week in London. Originally billed as “How to adapt your IT department strategy to the growing role of data and analytics” we opted for the shorter “ETOT Data Management Workshop”, and were pleased by the turnout – despite the Friday afternoon graveyard slot.
ETOT Data Management Workshop – Key Points
The workshop was delivered by Colin Hartley, CTO and Co-Founder of DataGenic. Colin is a specialist in designing and building enterprise time-series data management systems with experience gained from many years working on consulting projects in BP, Deutsche Bank and various European Utilities.
One of Colin’s responsibilities is ensuring DataGenic’s products have the functional and technical features that ensure DataGenic’s growth in all the market segments that we operate in. He achieves this by working closely with our core development team, our consultants and directly with clients themselves.
