“Innovation and digitalisation are key for industry to survive and compete in what is now a world-wide market. In these challenging times providing assistance and support for organisations especially in the regions has become even more important. The Hub assisted by the national agencies Irish Centre for High End Computing, Irish Manufacturing Research and INSIGHT offers opportunities for proof of concept development, staff upskilling and access to finance to allow your company be successful. “Heather Humphreys, Minister for Justice, Social Protection and for Rural and Community Development.


The Data Value Hub is working on exciting Projects for Enterprises in our region, including Entekra, Exitex, Errigal and Eighty6 Software, to advance their AI Capability. The Data Value Hub is also working with Net1, Nomad, Healthcare Analytics and Energy Team to identify how new technology can help make better decisions faster. At its core, the Hub creates a diverse and expert collaboration that helps to future proof the North East region’s economy through Productivity and Product Differentiation across all sectors.


The Data Value Hub is here to help Enterprises win with Data. Enterprises in our region have probably seen more technology change in the past 12 months than in the past 5 years, with staff working from home, the adoption of Zoom and a greater use of eCommerce. This trend will continue and Enterprises must adopt new technology to compete.


For Enterprises, the Data Value Hub enables Artificial Intelligence, (AI), Edge Computing and Autonomous Things. The Data Value Hub helps your Enterprise in 3 ways; Technology Upskilling, Incubator Projects and Capability Assessments. Later in 2021, the Data Value Hub will host open days, guest lectures, school visits, collaborative workshops and information days on valuable and emerging digital trends.


The Data Value Hub is hiring. A new Data Engineer role has been created to help Enterprises accelerate their adoption of digital technology. The Data Value Hub’s vision is to Help Enterprises develop competitive advantage through Data Value.


“The Data Value Hub is here to help your Enterprise adopt new technology to win in an increasingly competitive world “, according to John Shaw, CEO of the Data Value Hub. He has a strong background in Digital Innovation and has worked in Senior Technology Leadership roles for several leading Enterprises. John is a native of Dundalk and a Fellow of both The Irish Computer Society and Engineers Ireland.
According to John “Investing in AI helps your Enterprise Make Better Decisions Faster.“
