Conference Program

Lyons

9:00am-10:00am

Big Data & Analytics: Advanced Customer Engagement in a Social Media World

Duane Lyons, Practice Lead - Emerging Industries and MDM Competency Lead, Clarity Solution Group

Unstructured consumer data has been a kind of siren call to major companies. Companies have been struggling to leverage content from call notes, e-mails, audio files and other unstructured data sources for ages. The goal has always been robust, reliable consumer profiles. The fullest profile -- or most accurate truth -- about a consumer requires understanding data from all these sources. Marketers were on the quest for 360-degree consumer views even before social media came along. In this new age of social media, the growth of available consumer data has exploded.

Consumer insight drives brand positioning, pricing, product and service offerings, and consumer experience execution. Personalized consumer engagement leads to new consumers, new revenues and improved margins. The companies with the most complete understanding of their consumers gain the greatest business transformation.

During this interactive session we will:

  • Address central lessons learned from leading-edge consumer-focused technology industries:
    • Leveraging multiple channels to listen to customers and learn from each interaction
    • Actively anticipating and preparing to fulfill needs
    • Delivering the right messages and experience to customers at the right time based on their personalized needs
  • Discuss the emerging technology and analytical approaches that can be used to achieve these goals
    • Bridging traditional data assets, external content and, critically, shedding light on the unanalyzed dark data assets within the organization to create a 360 (or even 720) degree picture of the member
    • Applying effective statistical models to put your data to work, moving from effective segmentation to a “segment of one”
    • Putting emerging big data technologies to work enhancing customer interaction in real time

We will discuss the applications, lessons learned and outcomes of implementing these techniques at clients as diverse as Facebook, Groupon and ABInbev to improve customer experience and engagement.






10:00am -10:30am - Refreshment Break

Opitz

10:30am-11:30am

New BI & Analytics Technologies You Need to Understand (For Big and Not-So-Big Data)

Scott Opitz, SVP BI & Analytics, Altosoft - A Kofax Company

Competitive advantage and operational excellence is not assured just by accumulating Big Data repositories nor will more reasonable data stores disappear anytime soon. The greatest gains will come from the application of new and more insightful technologies that will liberate the value locked inside your Big Data and your not-so-big data repositories. In this session we will explore several emerging technologies that will provide new and asymmetric advantages you need to consider to be competitive in the next decade.







Sumar

11:30am-12:30pm

Making Sense of Business Intelligence in 2015 – Tools, Techniques and Disruption

Annur Sumar, Regional Solutions Director / Architect, Concurrency

There are a lot of buzzwords in BI today, but what do they mean and who is using which technology? How do you make sense of what is right for your organization? How do you leverage these technologies to deliver specific business value?

In this session we'll attack the topic from three angles: Technology, business use case, and IT administration to help you stay up to date and navigate this complex arena.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • The technical underpinnings of BI and how the major vendors compare
  • Business intelligence: Matching the tool to the user
  • Managing BI in a world of big data and cloud offerings

1:30pm-2:30pm

Leveraging & Transforming Big Data: What Every IT Leader Needs to Know

Jim Vaselopulos, Sr. Vice President , PSC Group, LLC

Effectively managing ‘Big Data’ presents huge opportunities for IT to deliver business value. By leveraging a continuously connected community of buyers and sellers, data can be mined to deliver relevant offers to an enterprise’s target base of customers. IT can show tremendous value to the business by having a well implemented big data program.

In this session attendees will learn how to:

  • Convince business leaders that the cloud will not put the organization at risk
  • Leverage analytics processes
  • Design a framework to target responses to customer behavior
  • Leverage technologies that are designed to support Big Data
  • How to work with business leaders to derive value from the data

Jordan

Your Architecture Isn’t Big Enough for Big Data, and What to Do About It

Craig Jordan, Enterprise Architect, American Family Insurance

Having Hadoop installed in your data center doesn’t guarantee that you’re ready for big data.
Being ready for big data requires enabling the capabilities to find and act on insights from the variety of sources that comprise “big data” in time to make business impact.
In this session, attendees will learn:

  • Three critical technology gaps that exist in most traditional BI architectures that limit their usefulness for big data
  • Options for addressing each gap
  • High level architectures for related solutions
