Carpe Datum! Seize the Opportunities Emerging from New Frontiers in Analytics

Big Data and Analytics technologies are creating tremendous new opportunities. That is certainly the case in Rochester, NY. Join usTuesday, March 10, 2015at the Woodcliff Hotel & Spa as leaders from local universities, Excellus BCBS and IBM share their visions and talk about the latest innovations and challenges in the world of analytics.

With these new opportunities come new roles and responsibilities for Enterprise Information Technology. We’re being asked to probe the “unknown unknowns” hidden in Big Data to uncover and identify insights. And IT must then enable the appropriate business processes to consume the products of our new understanding. The business applications and benefits extend into many areas: to deepen customer engagement, optimize operations, prevent threat and fraud, and capitalize on new sources of revenue. This symposium will help you anticipate how these trends will impact you and the way you do business.Click here to register for the event.
