At our summer BI & Analytics Update seminar on June 29th we will be sharing our experiences and perspectives on how blue chip, enterprise companies are using analytics to improve revenues and profitability.

We will take a look at examples in the industry where advanced analytics and algorithms are employed to provide enhanced predictive and prescriptive capability, resulting in significant ROI.

We're delighted to welcome a speaker from one of our consumer packaged goods clients to talk about his experiences building a data-driven organization, including the use of analytics to profile their data landscape. Thorogood CEO Trevor Jones will also be over from New York to share his perspective on the fast-changing market.

We'll also demonstrate how vendor offerings including Microsoft Power BI and Tableau are putting analytic capability into the hands of end users through both native functionality and integration with the R and Python languages.

And we will explore the considerations when moving to a productionized architecture for analytics, including the role that modern options such as cloud technologies and data lakes can play in enabling analytics at scale.
