Analytics roundtable discussion:

Analytics/”big data” is a hot topic today, however, it’s unclear what various organizations are doing with analytics or what benefits they are gaining.  In 2014, Robert Johnson/Atrion conducted a study on analytics usage, barriers to adoption and future plans by 70 mid-size organizations.  Robert will share the findings of this study and help facilitate a discussion on what participants are doing or planning for analytics as well as recommendations to others.
