How To Be Successful With Project AI - Practice and Management
Free Food, Free Parking, Free Event We have a very exciting event planned with two awesome presentors lined up for you. Andrea Amaraggi founder and chief program strategist at Cohere Insights joins us to talk about "Why do most Analytics (Data ML) Programs Fail?" Presentation Summary: Companies invest millions each year in building and maintaining analytics applications, but an estimated 60% to 85% of analytics programs fail. Why is the failure rate so high and how do you measure success? Success of any program starts with a clearly defined strategy and success criteria, and ends with supportable, sustainable, and scalable applications that users want and like to use. In this presentation we will explore what an analytics strategy is, how you define one, and how strategy should align with the strategic objectives of the organization. Ravi Kulasekaran Colabus founder joins us to talk about “Re-imagining project management with AI for success” Presentation Summary: Ever imagine how you can ensure your projects never fail? Collaboration islands, devoid of context slow down the decision making process. Does your collaboration data give you the deep insights to make proper, timely decisions? Contextually integrated data enables better AI – collaboration intelligence comes from intelligent collaboration.
