Fairfield/Westchester SIM June Program

"Visual Analytics"


Data Discovery through Visual Analytics 

Gartner sees a "shifting tide of BI platform requirements, moving from reporting-centric to analysis-centric, (meaning) the majority of BI vendors will make governed data discovery capabilities an expansion of, and the prime competitive capability for, their BI platform offerings." Visual Analytics solution providers understand the changing requirements of enterprise BI buyers - dynamic analytical tools, rapid deployment capabilities, predictive modeling and simulation. That's why they are stealing business from the enterprise BI vendors.
You are invited to join Fairfield/Westchester SIM for a panel discussion on June 12 where we will explore the evolution underway in the BI marketplace that is driving the success of solutions like Qlikview, Tableau and Spotfire. We are bringing together a group of service providers and practitioners with direct experience implementing these solutions. The focus of the discussion will be how these solutions compare to traditional BI, the complexities of deployment and the resultant benefits achieved.


  FWSIM is very pleased to announce that our panel will be facilitated by Joseph DeSiena, President Consulting Services Bardess Group Ltd.
