Organizations are wading through pools of data on customers, sales, operations and the market – just to name a few of the endless sources. Adding to the deluge of data, Gartner estimates that by 2020 more than 50 percent of major new business processes and systems will incorporate IoT technologies and that there will be more than 35 billion things connected to the internet. Bottom line – there is no shortage of data. Where organizations are falling short, though, is in making use of this data

That’s why conferences like Gartner’s Data & Analytics Summit are so important. All aspects of holistic data, BI, and analytics strategies will be on display next week in Grapevine, Texas, along with the latest solutions, deployments, and data-driven innovations—and the experts that pioneered them.

In fact, for those attending the summit and interested in getting the latest on data tools direct from the innovators themselves, Information Builders will be offering guided demo tours, as well as staffing our booth with experts who can discuss using BI and analytics to empower your organization, break down barriers to data-driven insights, and tap into the potential of your data.

If you’re at the conference, stop by booth #513 during one of the below times to join a 10-minute guided demo tour that will share tips and tools for preparing and harmonizing your data, and understanding the best opportunities for visualizing, operationalizing, and monetizing data through analytics:

  • Mon, March 6: 4:45 – 7:30 PM
  • Tues, March 7: 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM & 6:00 – 8:00 PM
  • Wed, March 8: 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM

(Psst: You didn’t hear it from me, but the first 150 of these “tourists” will receive a $10 iTunes gift card.)

Also at the event, be sure not to miss these two educational sessions delivered by Information Builders’ experts:

5 Steps to Monetizing Data and Analytics

Monday, March 6, 3:00-3:45 pm

Presented by Michael Corcoran, SVP and CMO, Information Builders

Location: Texas C, Level 3 Convention Center

  • In a recent survey, fewer than 20 percent of CEOs were satisfied with the value they have realized from investments in data and analytics. This session will address the most common challenges and mistakes organizations make regarding strategy, user adoption, and technology selection.

Learning From Websites Like Expedia to Increase BI Adoption

Tuesday, March 7, 12:15-1:00 pm

Presented by Rado Kotorov, Ph.D. Chief Innovation Officer Information Builders

Location: Solutions Showcase Theater 1, Longhorn E, Level 1 Convention Center

  • BI users are overloaded with reports and dashboards, but can’t find the information they need quickly. Here, we look outside our industry for fresh ideas and learn how the Expedia paradigm of data exploration and speed offers better information access, fewer reports and dashboards, and savings in development and maintenance.

The first 150 guests to attend Michael’s presentation on Monday will receive a copy of our book Organizational Intelligence: How Smart Companies Use Information to Become More Competitive and Profitable, written by Information Builders’ CEO, Gerald Cohen and Dr. Rado Kotorov, our chief innovation officer. The book will also be available at a book signing by the authors at Information Builders’ booth (#513) directly after each of these sessions.

As if discovering the next cost-saving, revenue-driving, insight-generating data tools wasn’t enough to get you excited for the summit, we’ll also be raffling off Amazon Echoes throughout the conference from the Information Builders booth! Hope to see you there so we can show you all of the BI and analytics innovations we’ve been working on, and how they can transform your company into a truly data-driven organization.
