Answer important business questions in less time with more data by breaking data silos
Enterprises are continually striving to become data driven and are now looking to make decisions based on the massive amount of data available within and outside the organization. But with most data locked in disparate silos, many enterprises end up using only the data most familiar or convenient, limiting the number and value of the questions they can answer. Others, overwhelmed by Big Data buzzwords and flavor-of-the-month technologies, overspend in the wrong solutions and undercut their ROI.
In this presentation we will cover an alternative approach to analytics that combines human expertise and machine learning — and learn how best-in-class analytics groups like GE, Toyota, and Thomson Reuters are using it to answer business questions faster, using more data, and with greater repeatability.
