*** For those who can’t make this session in person, we will be broadcasting as a LIVE WEBEX ***
You know all about BI and Financial Performance Management but what do you REALLY know about Advanced Analytics? Gartner’s description of Advanced Analytics is…
“the autonomous or semi-autonomous examination of data or content using sophisticated techniques and tools, typically beyond those of traditional business intelligence (BI), to discover deeper insights, make predictions, or generate recommendations. Advanced analytic techniques include those such as data/text mining, machine learning, pattern matching, forecasting, visualization, semantic analysis, sentiment analysis, network and cluster analysis, multivariate statistics, graph analysis, simulation, complex event processing, neural networks.”
This IS the next evolution in our industry… it is driving new approaches & technologies and has led to the creation of new job titles including the well adopted Data Scientist – it is the tangible application of the much heralded Big Data platforms and leverages the flexibility of Cloud based technologies, and all combined, deliver real world solutions!
We welcome and encourage you to attend what will be a thought provoking BUG where will share our view on how the key disruptive areas of Big Data, Cloud and Machine Learning are merging to make Advanced Analytics the reality it has become. We will break through the hype and explain real use cases for Advanced Analytics and provide a demonstration of just how you go about getting started in this space.
