Following on from last year’s successful visit, we are once again going to be at Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona later this month (Feb 27th – Mar 3rd).

Whilst browsing some datasets in the new year we spotted that something interesting was going on with London's Cycle Hire scheme, Santander Cycles, during the festive period. It seems that Christmas Day sees a real spike in cycle hire journeys, but the nature of these journeys is very different to an ‘average’ day of journeys in December.

It’s gone faster than we could have imagined as we are about to celebrate our second anniversary (we formed at the beginning of 2015) and it’s fair to say that it’s been an exciting couple of years for us...
Our Head of Data Insight, Jonathan Smith, is giving a webinar with Esri UK this week talking about Agile concepts and how they can be applied to reporting, analytics and GIS, using Esri technology.

Emu Analytics are going to be at the Telco Data Analytics conference in Madrid next week (Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th). We'll be on Dell EMC's stand showcasing some of our real-time contextual analytics applications built on mobile network data streams. These solutions cover use cases including mobility, data monetisation, fraud and CVM, so if you are representing a Mobile Operator with aspirations in these areas, then stop by and take a look. Of course our Duty of Care (insert link here) product will also be on display too, allowing businesses to assist their employees in a crisis.
