    Deeper analytics are now a normal part of shaping everyday life. Customers are expecting a personalized experience from shopping online to health care. New algorithms are being built on a daily basis. With all the explosion of insights, this session is focused on taking a step back to look at the question – Just because we can, should we? In the context of data and analytics.
