Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit - 2018
The Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit was held on March 15, 2018 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 psychology of data visualization, innovative use cases for IoT and machine learning, and success stories of implementing master data management. Additionally, new this year we offered hands-on workshops to allow attendees to work directly with analytics tools.
