On The Way To…ASUG Annual Conference/Sapphire Now 2016
This installment of ‘On the way to…’ is brought to you by Peets Coffee at Philadelphia International Airport. mmmm….coffee…..
For some reason, I’m suspecting a quiet front on the BI/Analytics front here in Orlando. Will we see some news about Cloud for Analytics (C4A) or maybe news on 4.2 coming out of ramp-up? Maybe. With the exception of anything C4A related, I just don’t have a feel that anything ‘big’ is being prepped for an announcement. I am hoping to see some cool stuff being shown on the keynote stage, though. It would be great to see some cool analytics use cases and customer stories from the main stage. And of course, I’m looking forward to hearing ‘Woz’ talk on Tuesday afternoon!
As for my three picks, this year I’m doubling down. I found three interesting presentations on the ASUG BI agenda that seem really neat, plus I’ll be moderating three ‘meetup’ sessions around analytics on Wednesday afternoon that I hope you’ll check out! Without further ado here are my ‘ASUG BI Session Sixpack’ for 2016:
