A huge global audience of analytics professionals joined us live for the unveiling of the 2014 IIA Analytics Predictions, to hear our faculty talk about what is in store for the new year. I personally found our conversations about predictions relating to automating and operationalizing analytics to be fascinating. We not only expect to see more use of these techniques, but we also expect to see organizations starting to bump up against the balance point of where we end up “over automating” our business processes.
Just like our children or grandchildren, anxiously awaiting that big day when they get to open holiday presents, we here at IIA are in the final countdown to the release of our 2014 Analytics Predictions. It is the time when our faculty gather round the virtual crystal ball and share their insights into where the world of analytics is headed in the next year.
I am heading off to Chicago this week to meet with HIMSS Analytics, our partner in launching the DELTA Powered Analytics Assessment. We are well underway with building the first cohort of healthcare providers to join the analytics benchmark, and we continue to reach more health care organizations in the final stages of implementing their electronic health record systems.
In just 6 weeks, IIA will convene the greatest minds in analytics and host the 2nd annual CAO Summit June 18-19 in Chicago. We have a confirmed roster of Analytics All-Stars and thought leaders who will lead sessions, including Daniel Wagner, CAO of the 2012 Obama Presidential campaign who harnessed the power of analytics to help POTUS win the White House.
We are only two months away from the IIA’s Chief Analytics Officer Summit (June 18th -19th) in Chicago, IL and have created a particularly exciting agenda this year. Whether you are the Chief Analytics Officer (CAO) or play a leadership role in driving analytics within your organization, the Summit has been designed to give you tangible, thought-provoking strategies and tactics that can be applied to advance any analytics program.
