First, how excited are we that Annual Conference is nearly here?!? There is a huge lineup of activities for the week in Orlando…it can be overwhelming. And, of course you can start with the Sample Agenda for Analytics. But here is my curated list of really great activities, according to these criteria:

  • Anything longer than 90 minutes is too long without caffeine.
  • Customer sessions get preference.


Most of the ASUG BI sessions are all in the same room– S330F–so you’re not going to waste time walking miles around the convention center. However, there’s a good smattering of activities on the SAPPHIRE Show floor, too.


Without further ado, here’s the list. Here is the key:

  • BLUE sessions are ASUG Educational sessions
  • YELLOW is a celebrity speaker highlight
  • WHITE is on the SAPPHIRE show floor
