On both the East and West coasts, organizations are often quick to ride (and adopt) the waves of the latest data and analytics trends. Here in the Midwest however, enterprise organizations pride themselves on understanding the true business value and benefit before jumping in.
In this session, Ashley Pradhan and Rachel Stewart will talk through the rising trends in the industry, particularly as it relates to midsize enterprise organizations in the Midwest. We will leverage our experience across industries to identify and discuss the following:

11:30am-12:30pm: How to Evolve Your BI and Analytics Architecture
New technologies are everywhere but your current architecture still holds tremendous value. The key is to determine how new technologies should be implemented in your existing architecture.
In this session, content that will be covered includes:
12:30pm – 1:30pm Luncheon
1:30pm-2:30pm: How to Develop an ROI for Business Intelligence and Analytics Projects
In the technology world, we know that success in analytics is often defined by access to more data with less down-time, and delivering more accurate analytics at faster speeds. However, executives and business users need to understand the costs, benefits, and return on investment (ROI) before making an initial technology investment and hiring supporting staff and resources. They want the benefits of analytics in a language they will understand. A well-understood and clearly defined business case that can show tangible value makes it easier to get business buy-in. In turn, you can transform your analytics team into a trusted business partner and an essential resource in the organization, not just a cost center.
