    Presentation: Topic #1  Internet of Things – Changing your World
    We can measure everything in infinite detail today. Analyzing the detail allows us to create new products, services and business models. The ability to automate at an unprecedented level based on the measurements and analysis creates a whole new set of opportunities. With opportunity comes disruption - perhaps the biggest disruption of existing business since the industrial revolution. To realize the opportunities and avoid becoming obsolete requires a data-centric and analytic centric view of your business. We will discuss what data centricity means in today’s world of vast quantities of measurement data and how crucial it is to avoid siloed, segmented data in the age of Analytics of Things.

    10:15 –10:30 a.m.

    Presentation: Topic #2  Making the move to Mobile Analytics 
    Environics Analytics’ Paul Tyndall, Vice President of Strategic Projects, will provide an overview to help marketers develop fuller profiles of their patrons and create better customer experiences. Combining the best practices in processing spatial data with privacy-friendly lifestyle segmentation, our mobile analytics allows businesses, not-for-profits and municipalities to identify who is visiting their locations, where they are coming from, how frequently they visit and how often they visit competitors. By quantifying how their trade areas and visitor profiles shift by time of day and day of week, organizations can better align their products, marketing and staffing by location. Identify Consumer Travel Patterns—Any Day, Any Time, Anywhere.

    11.15 – 11.30 am.
