Don’t miss out on the IAPA National Conference – “Advancing Analytics”

Analytics is a magnet for hype and hyperbole. Media, trend-spotters and new-age, spotlight-seeking data-wannabes use advances in data and analytics to make (fake) headlines. For business it’s important not to lose focus on the business impact of real-world analytics and the data science substance behind the hype and hyperbole.

The international experts speaking at the IAPA National Conference “Advancing Analytics” are all about substance, eschewing the hype in preference to the real-world needs of analytics in business. 18 October will be an informative and inspiring day for analytics professionals and business decision makers alike.

Don’t miss the impressive line-up of international and local speakers discussing, big data, AI, machine learning, predictive analytics and more.
