Digital enterprises must be hyper-decisiveTM – instantaneously processing vast arrays of data and information and delivering actionable insights to a growing community of users.  This year’s conference will explore the essentials of culture, technology, and process, helping attendees leverage and evolve current investments to emerge as successful, future-ready, and hyper-decisive enterprises.

The 2019 Real Business Intelligence Conference will be held May 14-15, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Tang Center in Cambridge, MA. The focus of the two-day, single track event will be on strategies for success with BI, analytics, information management, and performance management, providing attendees with pragmatic and actionable takeaways. Registration for this premier event is now open at www.seebeyondthenoise.com.

“Our conference is specifically engineered to provide a high-impact, enriching environment for learning and collaboration, ” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “More than a typical technology forum, our event aims to provide attendees with the tools and strategies they need to further their success with business intelligence and analytics programs within their own organizations.” 

Howard Dresner and Bill Hostmann are the conference co-chairs of this executive forum that will feature luminary keynotes, customer case studies, and expert and customer panels.

The conference features an exciting roster of speakers, including:

  • Bill Aulet – Managing Director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and Professor, MIT Sloan School of Management, will conduct a workshop focused upon how data drives change and competitive advantage, the networking effects created with data, and why some new ventures that drive change with data soar, while others fail

  • Efosa Ojomo – Research Fellow at the Clay Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, will discuss intelligently using data to make more accurate predictions, and developing theories in the absence of data, to help better predict what causes what - and why.
  • Dr. Iyad Rahwan – Associate Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at MIT Media Lab, will share insights into the various projects deployed at MIT to build a more cooperative relationship between humans and intelligent machines - founded in science and democratic values
  • Dr. Barb Wixam – Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Center for Information Systems Research, will present on “data wrapping”, one of three key approaches to data monetization, describing key activities that distinguish top performers – and exploring implications for business intelligence

  • Ankur Gopal – Founder and CEO at Interapt, will explore the widening talent gap as companies increasingly adopt digital business initiatives and the program they created, to source talent from diverse backgrounds, teaching them the skill of “learning how to learn” in an immersive training program
  • Mari Kuraishi – President of the Jessie Ball DuPont Fund and co-founder of Global Giving, will discuss the challenges of leveraging data within the nonprofit and philanthropic world, ethical issues around data, and how data is being used to transform the work of the social sector in areas as diverse as fraud detection, data consolidation, and monitoring
