The Fifth Elephant 2012

Finding the elephant in the data.

What are your users doing on your website or in your store? How do you turn the piles of data your organization generates into actionable information? Where do you get complementary data to make yours more comprehensive? What tech, and what techniques?

The Fifth Elephant is a two day conference on big data.

Early Geek tickets are available from fifthelephant.doattend.com.

The proposal funnel below will enable you to submit a session and vote on proposed sessions. It is a good practice introduce yourself and share details about your work as well as the subject of your talk while proposing a session.

Each community member can vote for or against a talk. A vote from each member of the Editorial Panel is equivalent to two community votes. Both types of votes will be considered for final speaker selection.

It’s useful to keep a few guidelines in mind while submitting proposals:

  1. Describe how to use something that is available under a liberal open source license. Participants can use this without having to pay you anything.

  2. Tell a story of how you did something. If it involves commercial tools, please explain why they made sense.

  3. Buy a slot to pitch whatever commercial tool you are backing.

Speakers will get a free ticket to both days of the event. Proposers whose talks are not on the final schedule will be able to purchase tickets at the Early Geek price of Rs. 1800.

Emerging techniques in stake holder feedback management

Submitted Jun 6, 2012

Explore the newer techniques in feedback management with the advancements in the field of text analytics.

Outline #

Appraisal cycles have started. The Employee satisfaction survey surveys have shown a 5-year low.

Your C-SAT results are a mixed bag. No real issue is surfacing, but the topline is shrinking.

Erosion of your standing amongst your stake-holders is difficult to pin-down.

The “Open-Ended” questions may have the minute details, but reading them all is not feasible :(

Also, even if read painstakingly, the task runs the risk of attribution bias: Subjectivity and intuition can be valuable but you are better served by applying an unbiased rule to measure the influence exerted by different topics on the outcome and pick those that stand out. Think impartiality.

Is there a technology implementation which can overcome this?
If yes how can i tap into my “open-ended questions” and link to my structured content?
