Gleaning Insight from Data

San Jose, May 4, 2009

Tracks & Workshops | Agenda at a Glance | Speakers | Pricing & Registration

Spend a day with others who are trying to wrest the best out of the data they already have.

Business analysts, business managers, researchers, thought leaders, industry analysts and vendors discuss the nature of analysis and how to derive business insight from data.

Innovators, practitioners and specialists deliver concise perspectives to spark the conversation to craft the best answers to our common quandaries:

We will consider and discuss:

  • Solving the right problems
  • Asking the right questions
  • Revealing business value
  • Practical steps for critical thinking

We will NOT lecture about:

  • Higher mathematics
  • Statistics
  • Database structures
  • Information theory


In the Spring of 2008, the eMetrics Industry Insights Day brought thought leaders together to consider the Big Picture of the analytics market place. The result was this Industry Insights Report. The day was repeated in the Fall in Washington.

I am personally asking the invited speakers to do something very, very different as this will be a whirl-wind of ideas:

Confirmed Speakers Include:

My view is that the reason we're so good at things is not that we have the best way but because we have so many ways, so when any one of them fails, you can switch to another way of thinking.

So instead of thinking of the mind as basically a rational process which is distorted by emotion, or colored and made more exciting by emotion -- that's the conventional view -- emotions themselves are different ways to think...

Your mind can work on several levels at once so, when you think about any particular subject, you also can think about the way you've been thinking -- and then use that experience to change yourself. Similarly, when you admire some teacher or leader, you can try to imitate their ways to think -- instead of just learning the things that they say.

Marvin Minsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Interview in the Boston Globe

“Why, anybody can have data. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the earth, or slinks through slimy seas has data!

Back where I come from we have Summits - gatherings of great learning - where people go to learn how to analyze that data.

And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and leverage their marketing investment, and with no more data than you have.

But - they have one thing you haven't got -
a ticket to the eMetrics Analysis Symposium!”
