field.work, a festival that will explore data and its creative potential. 

 

In modern society, digitisation of the world is increasing every day. It means brands must resonate with consumers through relevant and emotionally provoking communications.

 

Field.work will bring together global experts and practitioners to share, demonstrate and explore how a greater connection can be made with customers by providing insight, content and connectivity at scale. 

 

Capgemini is proud to be the exclusive sponsor of this one day festival with partner Havas.  The day will celebrate the many types of creativity that can be inspired by data – from food, to music to sculpture to digital visualization to sensory customer experiences, and include demonstrations, panel discussions, interactive workshops, and key note addresses. 

Speaking Session: The Infinite Individual 

Timings: 9:30am to 10:40am
People are no longer just a single record in a database; the rise of new data sources and an explosion in data volumes is creating the multi-dimensional person. Social media, wearable, business and physical information feeds are enabling companies to react in real-time, based on that specific individual, rather than categorizing into broad demographic groups.  This shift to the ‘Infinite Individual’ is creating both new business models and new challenges - as companies look to harness all these feeds to drive new value.  So what will the business of 2025 have to deal with to work with the Infinite Individual?
