Confessions of an Analytics Consultant

DESCRIPTION:
After years of working across many industries and technologies, I want to cut to the chase to the value of BI. Through many stories of the ups and downs of traveling the country, this presentation will talk about the lessons learned from standing up a BI organization to being too technology heavy in our strategy.
