News: Onyx hosting Big Data event


IT infrastructure providers, Onyx Group, is hosting an event at its Rotherham data centre to show businesses how best to get the most out of data.

"Big Data: Intelligence and Infrastructure" is being organised by the Onyx Group, in partnership with Rotherham company Biz-ICT.

The aim of the free event on September 9 is to address the subject of Big Data and Business Intelligence, putting the power to exploit the vast amount of data that flows through a business back into the hands of the senior management team.

Neil Stephenson, chief executive of Onyx Group, said: "This event will provide South Yorkshire businesses with a unique opportunity to discuss the impact of "Big Data" and to view the modern infrastructure we have available at our site in Rotherham.

"Most organisations have many years of historical data that is both strategically and tactically valuable. The wider question is how to manage that Big Data for the long-term benefit of the business.

"We understand that many companies lack the internal capability to manage big data themselves, so this event will address the issues many businesses are concerned about. Our session in Rotherham will present the benefits of real-time business intelligence and explore the bigger picture around big data infrastructure, now and for the future.

"Delegates will hear and get practical advice with a modern approach to big data that illustrates how organisations can furnish themselves with the power to exploit the vast amounts of information that flows through their business, without the need for in-house business intelligence experts or expensive systems."

Stockton-based Onyx opened its Rotherham facility at Pioneer Close, Manvers in 2012 where it delivers Cloud hosting and backup, colocation, IT support and security.

Also based at Manvers, Biz-ICT is an accredited Microsoft SharePoint specialist, providing integrated collaboration and business process applications, such as human resources, training, health and safety and intranets.

Mark Walsh, managing director of Biz-ICT, said: "We are pleased to join forces with Onyx Group for this event. At Biz-ICT our senior management team has 25-years’ experience in designing, delivering and supporting software solutions for businesses.

"We are therefore well placed to showcase and demonstrate the benefits of SharePoint to businesses leaders from many sectors who don't need to be IT experts to understand its use. The software solution is ideally suited for infrastructure planning and creating the right platform for them to analyse the performance of their business easily and quickly."
