Conference Program

Skriletz

9:00am-10:00am

Moving Beyond the Hype: Delivering Business Value with Today's Data and Analytic Technologies

Rick Skriletz, Global Managing Principal, RCG Global Services

Data and analytic technologies are evolving and maturing at a rapid rate, creating confusion and uncertainty about how best to take advantage of them. Success stories are replacing hype much more rapidly than experienced with previous generations of data and analytics technology. This presentation focuses on the paradigm shifts driving these new technologies, the changes to IT practices they require for success, and how to realize the business value they can provide.









10:00am -10:30am - Refreshment Break

Beals

Cavolick

10:30am-11:30am

The Evolution of Analytics, Maximizing the Value of Predictive

Brian Beals, Director, Big Data & Analytics, LRS
Steve Cavolick, Sr. Solution Architect, LRS

While many organizations leverage predictive analytics today, few take advantage of real-time scoring against live data. We will explore the evolution of the analytics lifecycle and demonstrate the value of predictive analytics at any point of impact with your customers; through a brief presentation and live demonstration of analytics in use by a financial services company.
 












Wagner

Huzinec

11:30am-12:30pm

CIO, the Information Alchemist: Turning Big Data and AI Into Better Decisions For the C-Suite

Rich Wagner, CEO, Prevedere
Michael Huzinec, Director, Business Analytics, Baker Tilly

Executives are demanding their organizations to be more data-driven. Yet few know exactly the right questions or truly understand the capabilities of their existing BI platform. In this session we'll discuss the top 5 ways CIOs can bridge this gap, leverage the latest technologies, and provide valuable insight to the c-suite.












12:30pm - 1:30pm Luncheon

Cruz

Höglund

1:30pm-2:30pm

The Best Companies are NOT Data Driven

Carlos Cruz, Practice Leader, Data & Analytics, Centric Consulting
Kimberly Höglund, Chief Knowledge Officer, Witt Kieffer

The best companies do not let data drive their decisions, but empower their people to use data to ask better questions and make better decisions.

This is the story about how Witt/Kieffer is transforming its business and culture to embrace data and analytics to support the firm's growth. We’ll discuss key elements for transforming a traditionally “intuition and art” based business to an “intuition, art and analytics” based business. These include: 1) making information relevant and understandable through agile dashboard building; 2) using a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) approach to add business value quickly and often; 3) strongly communicating “what’s in it for me” to help get past hard decisions; and 4) providing training (on tools and processes) and education (on how to interpret data). We are excited to share our journey with you.












2:30pm - 3:00pm - Refreshment Break

Head

Roden

3:00pm-4:00pm

The Data & Analytics Journey – Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before

John Head, Chief Evangelist, PSC Group
Dr. Mark Roden, Principle Architect, PSC Group

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 will walk away with broader understanding of what’s possible to move their company through the journey in 2017.
