Data Case Studies

9:00am - 17:00pm, Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Data is changing every industry it touches. From retail to entertainment to logistics, collecting and analyzing work helps us improve it. A recent MIT study shows organizations that embrace data do 5-6% better a year in competitiveness and profitability—compounded, data is the difference between dominance and obscurity.

In this day-long series of case studies, we bring together a dozen examples of data in action across a wide range of companies and verticals. Get an inside look at the business models, infrastructure, and processes that leading companies have deployed. And hear hard-won lessons you can put to work immediately.
