Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Business Intelligence and Analytics

  • Data visualization is one thing, but communicating your message effectively is another. Using narratives, and stories, is a key way to add structure, messages and conclusions to the insights you discover. In this seminar, Andy Cotgreave will outline why stories are so important in data communication. He will look at 7 different types of data story, and conclude by looking at some of the trends in storytelling. In order to enhance his own story, expect lots of examples from industry and data journalism!
  • Data visualization is a powerful technology but it's a means to an end and not a goal by itself. Its main purpose is to enable more people to gain faster insights from data. One way to accelerate this time to insight is to design better, more efficient visualizations. Design guidelines remain an always popular topic for data visualization talks because most data analysis applications require users to spend a significant amount of time turning knobs to get to the output they need.

    Alternatively, we suggest a design approach that focuses on meeting users' analysis needs, while minimizing their time to insight. In this session, join IBM's data visualization specialist Frank van Ham as he illustrates the effectiveness of guided visual analytics on different types of data.

  • As organizations continue to recognize the advantages of self-service analytics and data discovery they are evaluating alternatives to legacy Business Intelligence environments. To better understand this process, Blue Hill Research conducted a dedicated study to understand how users evaluate TIBCO Spotfire in comparison to other tools and how TIBCO Spotfire impacts their organization.

    Blue Hill Research analyzed the experiences of 131 current TIBCO Spotfire customers to evaluate how they use TIBCO Spotfire and how they rate their experience. Among a number of areas, Blue Hill Research investigated:

    · TIBCO Spotfire’s ease of use in comparison to other solutions

    · The time-to-value associated with choosing TIBCO Spotfire

    · The most common use cases for TIBCO Spotfire

    Join Principal Analyst James Haight from Blue Hill Research as he discusses the findings of his research initiative into deconstructing how and why organizations are choosing TIBCO Spotfire.

  • We live in a world that's obsessed with quantifying everything. Whether you are a marketer, a finance person, a journalist, or simply trying to persuade and inspire someone in your team, data can make a big difference. But data alone is not enough; you must make your numbers meaningful. The secret lies in telling the story behind the numbers.

    In this webinar we'll touch on:
    -The elements of a compelling story
    -Small datasets: distilling big data into meaningful insights
    -Case study: D.C Thomson uses data visualization to get 62% more viewer engagement
  • Practically every business collects terabytes of data from an array of sources, looking to analyze that data into meaningful insight that drives decisions. How come some organizations appear so successful while others simply vacuum up data, and then seemingly do little with the information?

    No matter their individual results, overall investment shows no sign of slowing: Brands plan to increase their spending on cloud-based data platforms alone by 73 percent over the next three years, according to VB Insight's "The State of Marketing Analytics" report. They spend more than one-third of their marketing budgets on analytics tools, but marketing executives have limited confidence in analytics tools' ability to generate insight – despite the availability of more than 800 software options.

    A VentureBeat webinar helps marketers wade through the tech-speak and discover how to:

    • Determine your organization's primary objectives for analytics
    • Winnow down your options to a handful of appropriate platforms
    • Come up with ways to measure success
    • Generate meaningful business insight from data
    • Plan for the future by the ability to add new data sources and tools

  • Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies such as PepsiCo rely on the seamless communication between a large interconnected network. In order to be successful, this network must include suppliers, production facilities, logistics partners and retailers. With a heavy reliance on coordination, each member of this network generates information in a wide variety of volumes and formats - making it difficult for CPG organizations to effectively leverage information in a timely manner to forecast sales, update production schedules, and define logistics efforts.
