What we're about

The vision of analytics is becoming more compelling in every industry sector: businesses see the many ways that data drives competitiveness, efficiency and profitability. And the reality of analytics is that it isn't the responsibility of a small cadre of data scientists - senior executives, line managers and IT organizations need to be part of the push to translate analytics vision into business value (V2V). This group is designed to support business and technical professionals who want to capitalize on 'the economics of data' in their business processes, customer interactions, management decision making and other facets of their operations.

V2V: The Economics of Data is managed by InsightaaS with the support of Information Builders.

Here's an overview of our agenda:
