We're getting the Academy program itself off on the right foot on Tuesday, when highly respected business intelligence and analytics expert Claudia Imhoff presents the first session, Creating an Analytically-Driven Organization.
Analytics have become the darling of software and service providers, consultants, and the press. Yet, the adoption rate for analytics and BI hasn't been universal. There are are lots of organizations that haven't made a commitment to analytics. Plus, lots of companies that have taken a first step into analytics are wondering how they can stay on the right track when they expand their initiative with more advanced analytics tools.
We have designed our Academy as a guide for all types of organizations, even those that don't have unlimited staff and financial resources to advance their analytics plans. Our expert presenters have deep experience in helping organizations do analytics the right way, and they are ready to share their best practices.
In our first session Claudia Imhoff will examine considerations such as how to recognize which business issues require use of analytics, how to nurture an analytics culture that encourages senior management and staff-level employees to embrace data as a tool, the elements of an analytics architecture, and how to make great use of data discovery and data storytelling.
So, join us Tuesday at 2 pm (EDT) for our first of five sessions. Then, on Thursday at 2 pm, data scientist Daniel Gutierrez of Amulet Analytics will discuss some of the ways that you can identify and utilize the right data for your business challenges.
