James DataIQ 100

James Alty, MD of Apteco, honoured to be among the top 100 in the DataIQ 100 in 2019

Since 2014, DataIQ has been tracking the rise of chief data officers, chief analytics officers, data scientists, data governance experts and the leaders of key vendors and service providers. The DataIQ 100 profiles the most important and influential people in data-driven businesses and the innovators who support them. Inclusion in the DataIQ 100 is a notable badge of honour that is widely referenced by the individuals who make the cut. The final list is chosen by DataIQ from an extensive consideration set - in 2019, over 530 candidates were discussed before the resulting 100 were selected. 

James Alty was selected for the DataIQ 100 for his work and efforts in enabling clients to create insight and communicate it to a wide business audience. By supplying the Apteco Marketing Suite™ through a network of partners, James has seen Apteco grow to be a successful international business with thousands of users, hundreds of clients and over 70 partners worldwide. With established subsidiaries in Frankfurt, Sydney and Rotterdam, he has closed the loop back to where he started 30 years ago, when he began his career as an analyst programmer with Logica in Rotterdam.

Commenting on the future of data analytics, James said: “The availability of data means we have fantastic scope to use analytics to improve our clients' work. The use of algorithms is now openly understood and balanced by consumers with their data privacy imperatives. Data practitioners can be at the heart of the most dramatic changes in how consumers interact with their suppliers.”
