Friday August 7th, 2015: Business Intelligence as ‘Exploratory Data Analysis’ Bakeoff’ – Tableau, Qlik, Information Builders, Tibco

Connect. Share. Learn.
Please join us at TDWI Vancouver Chapter on Friday August 7th, for another hot ticket in our BI Bake Off series. 
You will see four (4) of the top business intelligence vendors in the world presenting why their product line is,
and will remain, worthy of your consideration as you build your ‘Analytics Workbench’.

According to Wikipedia, the primary aim of Exploratory Data Analysis is for seeing what the data can tell us beyond the formal modeling or hypothesis testing task. Basically what is learned from the graphics is different from what could be learned by the modeling.

Tableau, Qlik, Information Builders and Tibco have each been tasked with showing you a vision of how their Business Intelligence toolsets can help your organization explore and discover in all the wild new data sources. This should be juicy!
