    Business demands on data and information teams are ever-increasing - including requests for new data sources, analyzed in new ways and sent via highly customizable outputs (mobile, responsive, etc.) - often leaving these two teams frustrated with each other instead of being collaborative partners. But for data to be used to actually address business needs and improve performance, this tension has to cease.

    In this session, Rich Wagner will provide key steps data and business teams can use to work as a happy family, including:
    • Determining the problem to be solved
    • Selecting data sources
    • Answering the "why" behind the numbers
    • Using data to manage the future – not just explain the past

    He'll then provide examples of how some companies have done just that to improve performance through data – including decreasing operating costs and increasing profits.
