The IT Pro Podcast: Data-driven doggos

Who’s a good boy? Data science has the answer

How do you keep track of canine genetic information, breeding data and a quarter of a billion communications records, all spread across different systems? That’s the challenge being grappled with by Guide Dogs for the Blind, a charity organisation dedicated to helping improve the lives of people who are blind or partially sighted. 

Like many organisations, Guide Dogs is in the process of unifying its data assets in order to make them as efficient and valuable as possible, and in this week’s episode, we speak to CIO Gerard McGovern about how the project is going. We look at the importance of data warehousing, the benefits of accessible data, and how data can help identify a good dog.
