Why This Symposium Matters:

  • As businesses are faced with a growing amount of data to analyze, but are unable to fulfill their basic analytics needs with the personnel that they already have, Data Analytics capabilities still remains the standard fare in 90 percent of modern analytics platforms. The increasing importance of Data Analytics for enterprise functions has changed the business world in the real sense but an average manager still remains unaware of the impact of data analytics in the business;
  • Operational Business Intelligence is facing major difficulties in keeping up with the most cyclical trends in businesses and industries such as automating the work of drawing conclusions from massive data sets for real-time decision making. It is hence critical for businesses to learn how they can leverage their growing data strengths and to compete on efficiency and customer experience;
  • Knowing the full range of possible Data Analytics use-cases – and the requirements and ROI-potential of each – allows managers to select areas of opportunity for near-term gain.
