This event will not go ahead on the planned date. We're looking at options such as running it at the May date, assuming we get an all clear for then. We will announce that ASAP.


This will be a joint event with the Project Data Analytics group who are now running their own meet-ups in Aberdeen

Talk 1 - "Can we reinvent how we deliver projects by leveraging data?" - Stephen Ashley / Andrew Buchan and Martin Paver

Imagine a future where we can securely pool project delivery data for the benefit of all. Where we reduce the barriers to entry for innovators. Where we begin to value the hard won experience that is codified in data and facilitate access to data to help drive AI based insights. The Oil and Gas Authority, Oil and Gas Technology Centre and Projecting Success will be sharing some insights into the pioneering work that they have been doing on an oil and gas project analytics data trust and their efforts to make this vision a reality. They will also provide an update on parallel work that is being conducted within the construction sector. If successful, it could facilitate a transformation in how we deliver projects, from new installations through to decommissioning.

Stephen Ashley is Digital Solution Centre Manager at the Oil and Gas Technology Centre
Andrew Buchan is Senior Project Advisor at the Oil and Gas Authority
Martin Paver is CEO of Projecting Success, an SME with a passion for using data to transform how we deliver projects.


Talk 2 - Lesley-Anne Kelly "The good, the bad, and the 3D pie chart" - a look at how good data visualisation can tell complex stories and how some miss the mark altogether. Lesley-Anne will talk through her favourites and least favourites and some in the blurred lines in between.

Lesley-Anne self-describes as a Weegie who landed in Dundee half a lifetime ago. She is the only data journalist and biggest nerd at The Courier and the Press and Journal newspapers.
