Executive Program

Invitation-Only Track for Data & Analytics Executives:

Future-Proofing Self-Service Analytics and Data Platforms

An exclusive gathering of experienced professionals, industry thought leaders, and top solution providers

The TDWI Executive Program supports data and analytics leaders like you who must embrace the brave new world of self-service technologies to promote excellence and innovation through data-driven insight.

TDWI’s latest quantitative research demonstrates that enabling users to do more on their own, with less IT intervention, has become a high priority in nearly every business. At the same time, many businesses struggle to maximize value and organizational advantage through the democratization of data and analytics.

Apply to attend the complimentary TDWI Executive Program during the TDWI Virtual World Conference, and learn how to lead your business to self-service-driven advantages that are future-proof, serve customers better, and are competitive in today’s evolving marketplaces, while maintaining solid governance and business alignment.

A limited number of qualified data and analytics leaders may attend the TDWI Executive Program free of charge and receive a six-course training pass for a member of their team. Applications will be accepted through October 30, 2020.
