Open Data Camp - Hyderabad 2012

One day unconference for people working with data from various sectors to come together and share their projects and ideas.
June 23rd, 2012 in Hyderabad.


The Asia Analytics Lab, Indian School of Business in partnership with the DataMeet group is organizing a one day unconference that brings together technologists, students, entrepreneurs and corporates who use data. We intend to create a platform to foster the exchange of ideas, challenges, solutions, projects that using data in India presents. Post the tremendous success of the first event in Bangalore, the Asia Analytics group decided to co-host an event in Hyderabad to expand the community.


What is Data Camp Hyderabad?

DataCamp will be a one day unconference at ISB, Hyderabad on June 23rd. This will be a place for people who are working with data from many different sectors to come together and share their projects and ideas. Data is not just for technologists and researchers – journalists, government workers, designers, and NGOs all use or want data in some way shape or form and in India the challenges around getting data and using it are unique and require a dedicated platform to work out solutions. This includes looking at how to make data open so that it’s potential to create more accountability and transparency to improve policies and implementation of projects across industry, citizen sector organizations, and governance. Data Camp will provide that platform for Indians to work out what are the problems around getting data and using it to further their projects and enhance the impact they want to make.

Who is Organizing?

The event was first organized in Bangalore by the DataMeet group. The Asia Analytics Lab which is actively educating and promoting the use of Data Analytics and Visualizations among the students and the industry, tied up with the DataMeet group to organize the event in Hyderabad.

Who Will Be Attending?

India has a growing group of people who are interested in data and we hope to have representatives from many different disciplines. We will be inviting organizations that use data analytics in their decision-making process, educational institutions that teach data – related courses, start-ups that are building cool products using data, NGOs that use data. We plan to create a confluence that would enable people who work with different aspects of data to come together and present their ‘adventures’ with data.
