Scaling Analytics & AI Across Your Organization

Join Us January 19th

Hear from leading academics and executives, and participate in small group discussions with experts and peers to explore these questions:

    • What does it mean to scale Business Intelligence beyond technical silos?
    • What is required to scale out to the lines of business (LOB)?
    • What obstacles and political barriers may be encountered? How do you manage throughout the journey?
    • What does “done” look like? How do you know when you have successfully scaled analytics and AI?
