Spring Virtual Analytics Symposium 2021

The International Institute for Analytics (IIA) is the industry’s leading source of research, advisory, and
assessment services for companies transitioning to data-driven decision-making and advanced analytics.

IIA was founded in 2010 by Tom Davenport and Jack Phillips. Live, interactive events have always played an
important role in helping our clients with their analytics journey and IIA’s Analytics Symposium has evolved
into a unique, bi-annual event.

IIA’s Analytics Symposium is designed specifically for analytics leaders and practitioners. The agenda is
crafted to inform and inspire participants and is free from vendor influence. Analytics leaders share their
real-world experiences and time is set aside for peer-to-peer networking and collaboration.

All IIA client companies receive access to Symposium as part of the service and presentations from this
Symposium and past events are available to IIA clients via our web portal.

IIA’s Analytics Symposium is typically a full-day, in-person event. However, the 2021 Spring Analytics
Symposium was held as a virtual event.
