Please join us for this lively presentation on Data Science for Business Analysis.

Data is the lifeblood for intelligent companies today. Organizations are leveraging data to make smarter, faster decisions, and drive greater business outcomes. The benefits from data are obvious: competitive advantage, reduced costs, new services, new revenue streams, and enhanced customer experience, to name just a few. Companies are rushing to take advantage of data and maturing new technologies that move, mine, and consume increasingly diverse data from an ever larger array of sources. AI, machine learning, and advanced algorithms are enabling organizations to unlock tremendous value from data and drive outcomes sooner, with greater impact than anyone ever imagined possible.
