Explore the trends, possibilities and pathways forward with AI, data and analytics. This meeting will be held via web only. 

The health and safety of our members is the UWEBC’s top priority. UW–Madison is monitoring the COVID-19 situation in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies. Based on campus' guidance, this meeting will be held via web only to allow our members a convenient and safe way to attend.

It’s been said that “information is the oil of the 21st century” and without analytics companies will be ill positioned to meet the demands of the digital age. After all, data and analytics continue to be the most touted key to success in nearly every industry, but what’s really driving the current hype cycle? Have companies realized analytics maturity and employed advanced technologies such as AI and Machine Learning? What emerging technologies should companies be investing in to ensure success? In this session we will examine key trends, successful use cases, and glimpse into the crystal ball to see what emerging technologies should be considered for investment to position your business for success during an age of disruption and uncertainty.

In this IT Peer Group event, you will have an exceptional opportunity to think through your challenges and new ideas with subject matter experts and peer IT leaders. You will take away valuable insights to build a playbook of implementable strategies and action plans.
