Technology moves fast in 2017. Market disruptions are no longer rare, they are common. They are also inevitable.  

Career-minded data analytics professionals, data scientists, line-of-business managers, and IT pros recognize the pace of technology changes and are augmenting their skills to be ready for tomorrow's workplace.

Similarly, smart enterprise organizations are preparing for the opportunities promised by tomorrow's technologies.

To help you and your organization get ready, AllAnalytics Academy, Fall 2017 will take on five hot technologies that are gaining momentum right now. We will tackle each topic in a webinar during the first two weeks of November. These sessions are offered free-of-charge (site registration required) and will get you up to speed on the following technologies:

  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Machine Learning
  • Edge Analytics
  • Real Time Analytics
  • Augmented Analytics

We've recruited experts in each of these technologies to present a business 101-style session for everyone from analytics pros, to line-of-business managers, from IT pros, to C-level executives. These sessions will cover basic terminology and concepts, real-world use cases, how to identify projects within your own organization, how to measure results of these projects, and next steps you can take back to your organization.

You can sign up to attend one or all of these sessions if you click through here. Please also click through to each session individually in order to add a calendar invitation to the session to your own calendar to remind you to attend at the designated date and time.

Attending in real time gives you the advantage of being able to ask questions of the presenter. If you miss the event itself, you can access it on-demand later. We encourage you to register now so you don't miss out on a reminder to take advantage of this free series of webinars on tomorrow's technologies.
