Business community comes together to cultivate creativity at one of only 15 specialist centres worldwide

8 May 2015

Deloitte today launched a new Analytics and Innovation Lab at an exclusive event held in their state-of-the-art Belfast Technology Studio in the Gasworks.

The lab is part of Deloitte Greenhouse, an innovative initiative designed to help firms overcome business challenges.

Speaking at the event, Dr Danny McConnell, Technology Partner at Deloitte in Belfast said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen as one of only 15 office locations globally to offer the Deloitte Greenhouse experience.

“The Northern Ireland business landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. In particular, the rate of data is increasing faster than ever before and businesses want to know how they can harness the power of data and analytics to realise their full potential.

“With this new offering we are going to be able to help Northern Ireland firms achieve growth and gain further competitive advantage in the global marketplace.”

Dr McConnell continued: “Deloitte Greenhouse is specifically designed to nurture business ideas and help bring them to fruition. With this new technology, we can help firms solve their toughest business questions which may range from what price to charge for their products, to whether they have the correct organisational design in place for their business.

“The Analytics and Innovation Lab is a unique space for cultivation – of ideas, relationships and opportunities – to help accelerate innovation using data and we are very proud to be launching it here in Belfast today.”

Guests at the launch were given a demonstration of the Deloitte Fashion Intelligence Product and in addition, there was an informed session on how Deloitte deliver their Insight Driven Organisation proposition, which illustrated how the lab can help them solve business challenges.
