Showcase Event Overview:

Learning about the latest and greatest analytic tools can be a time-consuming, resource intensive endeavor. The Analytics Leaders Network (ALN) understands this challenge and is hosting an invite-only Analytics Solution Showcase on Friday, May 11.During the half-day session, you’ll hear from four analytic solution providers about trends in the industry and their solutions in areas such as data prep, quality, integration, BI reporting, analytics and data management. Normally, you’d have to bring in each solution provider to learn about their products, or compete for time at a massive trade show or expo. The ALN is bringing the solution providers to you with this invite-only showcase: multiple solutions in one exclusive event.

The Analytics Solution Showcase event was derived out of the needs business and technology leaders had in trying to understand the analytic and business intelligence landscape:

  • What’s the latest trend?
  • Who offers the solutions that I need?
  • What products fit my specific needs?

Thanks to the generous support of our showcase sponsors, the event is free. A reservation is required for the event, as walk-ins will not be able to attend. Sign-up today to reserve your place at the table.
