Following up on last year's presentation "The Missing Piece of the Profit Economy," Dr. Allis will discuss how to move beyond the "Big Data" headline to
achieve real business value with "Big Calculations" in his
presentation, "Calculated Decisions: The key to solving the efficiency
puzzle." The presentation will offer a perspective and roadmap for
increasing speed, efficiency, and competitiveness by activating data;
it will take place on Tuesday, May 20 at 11:15 a.m. MT in the Grand
Canyon 8 ballroom. Following the presentation, Dr. Allis will be
available for one-on-one discussions.
"The biggest 'Big Data' myth is that it is all about the data," said Dr.
Allis. "Big Calculations unlock the value of data and enable a company
to optimize. I look forward to sharing our views on the 'data value
spectrum,' and I will reveal the steps to activate the potential of
data as well as discuss our customers' experiences."
