#ThinkChat- Advanced Analytics: What's In Your Future?



Follow #ThinkChat on Twitter Friday, May 27, 2016, at 11:00 AM PST, for a live conversation exploring the impact of what the future holds for you and your analytical approaches to business enhancement!

Join @DellBigData for the May #ThinkChat tweet up where we hope to explore and predict how we will want to leverage and expand the use of analytics in our lives – both at a data and metric level.  After all, you can’t have advanced analytics without the fundamentals tackled and mapped.  Bring your questions and your best practice experience to share with folks that are exploring the idea of analytics, and for those of us just getting started, bring your future visions of how things can and will be different by delivering analytics to the business.  Whether you have ideas that involve delivery an acronym soup (ETL, BI, EDW, HDFS) or if you are more interested in sharing and learning how the business improves with the deployment of advanced analytics in the form of practical use cases or just questions about how to get started and where to go for more information-this Tweet Up can be the place for you.  Meet, mingle, share and learn.  We hope to see you there!

Join Shawn Rogers (@ShawnRog), marketing director for Dell Statistica, Joanna Schloss (@JoSchloss), BI and analytics evangelist in the Dell Center of Excellence, and David Sweenor (@DavidSweenor), product marketing manager at Dell Statistica for this month's #ThinkChat as we conduct a community conversation around your thoughts and real-life experiences!
