There is always something new to learn, no matter who you are or what sort of a career path you have selected. So if I had my way I would have attended all three of the events. The most interesting learning experiences would be the futuristic ideas and developments presented at such events.

One could say that if you are not at first overwhelmed with an analtyical project, you're probally not doing it right.  It takes a lot of thought and insight to narrow down and make things managable.  No two projects are alike and there is always some interesting twist to the story the data is telling. 

Also, there are so many new analytical programs popping up all the time. A/B testing, text analysis, new types of data storage and the list goes on and on.  Who can learn them all?

It is interesting to see these learning events taking place on analytics. This shows how people are interested in learning about new possibilities and implementing systems at their organizations to enhance performance.

"One could say that if you are not at first overwhelmed with an analtyical project, you're probally not doing it right."

True. Many might not understand what the output of analytics can be used for and how this can result in competitive advantage if a possibility is discovered which is not known to your competitors. The other side is the internal side of organization where effectiveness of many functions can be enhanced if all the processes and results are re-evaluated through analytics.

I love technology conferences. Not just because i get to travel but nearly every conference i go to serves me an epiphany moment at some point. That moment that stirs you again out of your newest comfort zone when you see what others have been working on. Never to old to learn..

@kicheko -- I love the idea of having "epiphany" moments at conferences. It's so important to keep an open mind and be willing to embrace what you hear and think about how it might apply for you and your organization. Do you have any examples to share of those aha! moments you've had at conferences?

I agree. It also seems that the further you get into any project, the more you realize that you don't know. What sometimes looks straightforward on the surface, often is not.

@Phoenix,

" if I had my way I would have attended all three of the events."

Conferences are venues for interesting learning experiments, expecially when the keynote speakers include experts in the domain. I would have atttended the Analytics 2013 conference as well, If I could.

@Seth,

" It takes a lot of thought and insight to narrow down and make things managable."

When we have the right tools, all projects become easily manageable. But finding that right tools is not always an easy task. Talking with experts can help you pin down what you need for your project.

@Hospice   I agree but what do you do when there are no experts around ?

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
