- Data Enrichment, the Missing Data Link
Telling insightful stories with data visualizations is both art and science; not having the best data for analytics can prevent businesses from making the best decisions. Generally, organizations run their business intelligence with data generated from within their own processes; in this session, we will look at how data enrichment in conjunction with a good data visualization strategy can help corporations glean extra value out of their data analytics solutions. We will show the visual and analytical insight that can be achieved when we incorporate external data and analyze its correlation to metrics generally used to assess, compare, and measure performance. Food & Drinks will be provided. LOCATION: Capital Factory + The DEC in Dallas at The Centrum.
