The digital revolution has resulted in the capture of massive amounts of data from mobile phones, sensors, transactions, social media and more.  This, in turn, demands that all businesses acquire or develop competency in analytics and analytical decision making.  Many established organizations lack this capability.  Leading edge organizations are achieving incredible gains in productivity leveraging analytics; laggards are at serious risk of failure. This session will examine how businesses can acquire analytics capability through organic development, partnering, acquisition, or merger and will examine how businesses can acquire the skills they need to compete in the digital world.
