It’s useful to keep a few guidelines in mind while submitting proposals:
Describe how to use something that is available under a liberal open source license. Participants can use this without having to pay you anything.
Tell a story of how you did something. If it involves commercial tools, please explain why they made sense.
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.
Simplifying advanced analytics to empower business managers
Intent of the session is to provide a comprehensive picture of the key challenges analytics is facing in the world of business and how we can solve them with help of technology and business context
Advanced analytics can significantly help business managers make more informed decisions by uncovering crucial insights, that would otherwise remain hidden. While benefits of analytics are agreed by senior management of most enterprises, the adoption continues to be limited in most enterprises. As Big Data grows in importance, low adoption rate of analytics will evolve as an “Achilles Heel” .
This session will showcase how to effectively combine analytics and business by embedding data mining and machine learning techniques in a business application with right blend of business context, simplified user interface and new age IT infrastructure. This can significantly simplify sophisticated analytics to make it more accessible to business managers in their day to day decision making process.
