Talk Abstract:

Humans want analytics. They don’t want just a data lake. Data lakes cost big money, big data analytics make money. The Data Skeptics is pleased to present this unique talk by Teradata’s Director of Analytics Strategy, John Thuma. Come learn how John’s approach to creating Analytics for Humans (A4H) can help all of us better use data to optimize our businesses.

John will explain why he thinks big words and big egos are taking center stage over big results. Enough of the hype! John will demonstrate practical examples of IoT and AoT and the art of the possible in real world use cases impacting: energy/utilities, healthcare, food safety/supply chain, the sentient financial website (example walk-through), and many others.
