Anaeko’s ‘Big Data’ nominees announced for DL 100

Big Data Innovation

The nominees for ‘Big Data Innovation’ at this years Digital Leaders 100 awards have been announced, Anaeko are proud to sponsor a category that seeks to highlight tremendous innovation in the technical industry. Organisations are increasingly defined by their data and how they use it. This award is for a digital product or service that in the last year has had a measurable impact and delivered real outcomes in the field of big data.

The DL100 list is created by public vote and celebrates the teams and individuals who are working hard behind the scenes to secure the UK’s Digital Transformation. Digital leaders have been asking the public to help find these digital pioneers from across the UK and from the public, private and non-profit sectors, every year since 2013. While the selection process is led by industry professionals, the final result in each category is decided by public vote, so it is super important that you vote for your selected pioneer in ‘Big Data Innovation’ and the other 10 categories this year.

Digital Leaders is an initiative that has created a shared professional space for senior leadership from different sectors promoting effective, long-term digital transformation. Our community of 100,000 senior leaders are involved in leveraging technology to promote economic growth, increase social well-being and narrow social gaps across the UK.


We believe that Anaeko is a perfect fit, not only to sponsor the ‘Big Data Innovation’ category but to also be a part of this event as we are a Data Analytics and Digital Services Specialist, who deliver intelligent multi-cloud analytics for mature organisations in regulated industries.

From our Belfast headquarters we have delivered over 400 data management and analytics projects since 2004. We design data fabrics across millions of assets, build platforms that analyse exabytes of data, operate applications that engage millions of users, and transfer products that process billions of records. And we can’t wait to see what each nominee has to showcase in this innovative category.
