Transformational Innovation Through Data Award

Last year, the Transformational Innovation Through Data award was introduced, and The Data Lab is proud to announce we are sponsoring this award again this year.

Innovative uses of data and analytics can drive significant transformation for organisations, ranging from improved business performance or operations through to driving new solutions and capabilities. This award is to recognise teams or individuals who have used Data to innovate and transform their business, their client relationships or the services and products they deliver to market.

In 2016, this award was won by Royal Bank of Scotland. You can see a list of all 2016 winners and nominees here.
