Announcing the winners of our inaugural IoA Analysts Awards

The Global IoA Analysts Awards 2022 celebrates those who are challenging the status quo and transforming business and society through outstanding and innovative use of data.

Winners of the 2022 IoA Analysts Awards were announced today by the Institute of Analytics (IoA).

The awards were created to celebrate data's positive impact on business and society and were judged by a panel of data analytics and education experts. "The awards go far beyond acknowledging data solution strategies," said Dr Clare Walsh, IoA Director of Education. "They recognise those who are agenda-leading in the world of data analytics with the ambition and potential to drive substantial positive change.

Though the awards were only launched recently, outstanding nominations were received from around the world which truly represented our aim of recognising individuals, teams and organisations that are delivering a new blueprint for the 21st century.

An in-depth profile of each of the winning submissions will be shared in the coming weeks.

Winner of Data for Social Good: Social Value In Defence

The Social Value In Defence hackathon is a cross-industry collaboration with a clear aim: to create a social value data platform built on open-source data sets to provide an accurate picture of the socio-economic status of a defined area.

The ambition is to create a platform and user interface which would be accessible to both public, private and third sector organisations, locally and nationally, to inform, direct and coordinate resources and interventions to deliver meaningful benefits and achieve impact where it is most needed. Plymouth was chosen for the pilot due to its alignment with Plymouth Pathfinder, an ongoing collaboration between government, business, academia and local stakeholders to work with common purpose to build legacy.

The hackathon was hosted by Microsoft over five days, with participating teams from Babcock, the Ministry of Defense, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, whatimpact, Plymouth County Council and the University of Plymouth.
