Pivoting Your Analytics Journey, November 10, 2016 | Nashville, TN

When was the last time you really looked at IBM Business Analytics?

Data is all around us and continues to grow. There are hundreds of insights to be discovered, but data is difficult to grasp and no one tool can do it all. Lately at IBM, we’ve been changing things up. We’ve made analytics more accessible to more people while ensuring that enterprise business intelliegence (BI) is always centrally managed, governed and secure. Please join us at “Pivoting Your Analytics Journey” where IBM will share our latest projects and answer your questions. You’ll also view a demo of the IBM Business Analytics portfolio and hear about our latest offerings.

Join us on November 10 at Tennessee Brew Works to get a peek at how IBM is transforming Business Analytics. We look forward to sharing some great beer and some valuable insights with you. RSVP today!
