MWLUG 2017 BP110 The Data and Analytics Journey Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before

I presented The Data & Analytics Journey – Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT at MWLUG 2017. Here is the session abstract: The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies can reap the benefits. Many believe they need a data warehouse, expensive reporting software, & an army of data scientists to get any value out of effort and cost. This session will explore and debunk that myth and showcase how companies of any size can participate.

At Social Connections 11 in Chicago on June 2nd, 2017, Mark Roden and I delivered our second pass of the session The Data & Analytics Journey – Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before - and it is different than the version we gave at CampIT. Better slides, edited for a shorter time period, and honestly - it just flowed better a second time live.

August 4 2017

On April 13th, 2017, Mark Roden and I spoke at the CampIT conference on Business Intelligence / Analytics / Big Data Strategies in the Chicagoland area. The session abstract: The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies can reap the benefits. Many believe they need a data warehouse, expensive reporting software, and an army of data scientists to get any value out of effort and cost. This session will explore and debunk that myth and showcase how companies of any size can participate in the journey. While there are many maturity models and journey maps available, most are not designed to be practical guides to solving common business problems. Because of the explosion in availability in cloud services, the barrier to entry has eroded significantly. During this session, we will look at some practical steps to access these capabilities and provide examples to where market-leading and growth companies have seen large benefits. Attendees

XPages, SharePoint, Salesforce, Python, etc. And interesting reminder of how the greater tech trends effect each developer personally.
