About the event

Your ​competitors ​are ​using ​data ​science ​and ​machine ​learning ​to ​reduce ​churn, ​increase ​conversion ​rates, ​and ​turn ​marketing ​into ​a ​profit ​center. ​So, ​you’ve ​probably ​already ​hired ​a ​Data ​Scientist, ​or ​plan ​to ​soon. ​But ​chances ​are ​they ​won’t ​be ​successful ​or ​stick ​around ​very ​long, ​unless ​your ​customer ​data ​is ​prepped ​appropriately. ​Same ​goes ​for ​Personalization ​and ​Business ​Intelligence ​(BI). ​Like ​any ​machine, ​the ​quality ​of ​the ​results ​is ​only ​as ​good ​as ​the ​quality ​of ​what ​goes ​in. ​Artificial ​intelligence ​(AI), ​personalization, ​and ​BI ​platforms ​can ​be ​powerful ​tools ​to ​help ​you ​predict ​and ​influence ​outcomes, ​but ​you ​need ​to ​operationalize ​your ​data ​first, ​before ​you ​can ​get ​the ​most ​from ​your ​data ​science ​professionals ​and ​marketing ​technology. ​ ​ 

Presented ​in ​partnership ​with ​Tealium ​- ​an ​industry ​leader ​in ​real-time ​customer ​data ​orchestration, ​our ​panel ​of ​experts ​will ​lay ​out ​the ​roadmap ​for ​data ​readiness ​– ​a ​prerequisite ​to ​data ​science ​– ​and ​help ​you ​pace ​accordingly. ​From ​tracking, ​analyzing, ​diagnosing, ​predicting, ​to ​finally ​influencing ​data, ​we’ll ​provide ​you ​with ​the ​key ​strategies ​at ​every ​step ​in ​the ​data ​operationalization ​process, ​so ​you ​can ​start ​implementing ​the ​prescriptive ​analytics ​that ​leads ​to ​business ​success. ​ 

The ​AI ​revolution ​isn’t ​coming; ​it’s ​already ​here. ​It’s ​time ​to ​get ​data-ready. ​ ​
