At Social Connections 11 in Chicago on June 2nd, 2017, Mark Roden and I delivered our second pass of the session The Data & Analytics Journey  Why it's more attainable for your company than ever before - and it is different than the version we gave at CampIT. Better slides, edited for a shorter time period, and honestly - it just flowed better a second time live. The session abstract:

The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies can reap the benefits. Many believe they need a data warehouse, expensive reporting software, & an army of data scientists to get any value out of effort and cost. This session will explore and debunk that myth and showcase how companies of any size can participate. While there are many maturity models available, most are not designed to be practical guides to solving common business problems. Because of the explosion in cloud services, the barrier to entry has eroded significantly. We will look at some practical steps to access these capabilities and provide examples to where market-leading and growth companies have seen large benefits. Attendees will walk away with broader understanding of whatâs possible to move their company through the journey in 2017. We will take a close look at IBM Watson solutions and how they integrate with IBM Collaboration and Social solutions.
