Global Data Observatory


The KPMG Data Observatory is the largest of its kind in Europe, it features an enveloping circular wall of 64 monitors powered by 32 computers facilitating 313 degrees of surround vision.

The Data Observatory provides an opportunity for business to visualise data in a way that uncovers new insights, and promotes the communication of complex data sets and analysis in an immersive and multi-dimensional environment.

Designed, built by, and housed within the Data Science Institute at Imperial. The Observatory can be integrated within Executive Education programmes to bring data sets to life. The objective is to enable decision makers to derive new insights and actions from interrogating data sets in an innovative, unique environment.

Executive Education work with clients, participants and programme academics to develop datasets before a programme which is in line with the learning objectives. It gives executives the opportunity to visualise Big Data – better – and unlock innovation and improved decisions as a result. We feature the Data Observatory on the Doing Disruption programme where we discover how to lead and challenge with Data.
