Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit - 2017 

The Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit was held on March 30, 2017 at the Detroit Marriott Troy. It was a successful event that brought over 300 IT and BI professionals together for one day to exchange innovative ideas, network and glean some insights from real-life case studies.

We had great speakers who joined us to discuss the challenges the auto industry is facing with the advent of connected cars, how the public sector interacts with the big data collected from connected monitors, sensors and cameras, and how enterprise-wide analytics can help reduce costs and increase efficiency in the healthcare industry.
