About

Last year we faced the reality of big data. This year, we put it to work

Gartner BI & Analytics Summit 2014 shows you which new technologies can advance your organization and how to build the skills to use them. Built around the theme, "The Future of Your Business: Transparent, Decisive, Personalized," our expanded agenda shows you how big data and advanced analytics are being applied to make your business models more transparent, decisive and personalized.

  • Transparent: Make information transparency and customer-facing analytics a key part of your business model to build stronger relationships with your customers, partners and suppliers.
  • Decisive: Focus your business analytics strategy directly on creating a more empirical and collaborative decision-making process.
  • Personalized: Learn how analytics can deliver more precise measurement and granular segmentation to build more personalized business processes.
