Friday September 9th, 2016: ‘Peering into the Fog’ with BI and Analytics - Bakeoff – SAS, Qlik, IBM

Connect. Share. Learn.
ATTENTION ALL BI/DW AND ANALYTICS PROFESSIONALS! 
Please join us at TDWI Vancouver Chapter on Friday September 9th, for another hot ticket in our BI Bake Off series. 
You will see three (3) 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 Gartner, Analytics has emerged as a catch-all term for a variety of different business intelligence (BI)- and application-related initiatives. For some, it is the process of analyzing information from a particular domain, such as website analytics. For others, it is applying the breadth of BI capabilities to a specific content area (for example, sales, service, supply chain and so on). In particular, BI vendors use the “analytics” moniker to differentiate their products from the competition. Increasingly, “analytics” is used to describe statistical and mathematical data analysis that clusters, segments, scores and predicts what scenarios are most likely to happen. Whatever the use cases, “analytics” has moved deeper into the business vernacular and has garnered a burgeoning interest from business and IT professionals looking to exploit huge mounds of internally generated and externally available data..

SAS, Qlik and IBM have each been tasked with showing you a vision of how their Business Intelligence and Analytics toolsets can help your organization see further ahead while using the wild new data sources. This will be juicy!
