Presentation Abstract:
Today’s business runs at the speed of its analytics; analytics run at the speed of data. Analytics programs are crucial to corporate competitiveness, yet many companies struggle to fully leverage new and emerging analytics technology. This talk will focus on an aspect of how the words we use can help or hinder our progress to leveraging technology to its fullest. The examples used will include the PPDM Association’s “What is a Completion”.
