IIA Monthly Newsletter 

November 2012

To the IIA Community,Hurricane Sandy left such a path of destruction in her wake and we, here at IIA like many of you, made calls and checked in with our loved ones, co-workers, faculty, and partners in the affected areas. As we did so, we repeatedly heard that Hurricane Sandy was a humbling reminder of life’s fundamentals – our friends and family. We were struck once again by the knowledge that while we make tremendous and exciting strides each year with technological capabilities, we are still human. We hope this message finds you all safe, with power restored and without damage to your homes and loved ones.
Also for those in the U.S., you’ll know that today is election day! Analytics have played a unique role in past elections and we’ve included a few links to a few fascinating articles.
