Modern Analytical Systems | 10 October Ljubljana
We discussed how businesses transformed from gut-feeling management to data-driven management, how businesses can analyze and visualize large data volumes in order to secure a competitive advantage, and why using “the right tool for the job” is critical for business success.

But, traditional data warehouse platforms and processes were simply not designed for the changed role of analytics, nor the exponential growth of the data sources, volume and complexity, or extending standard reports and dashboards into data exploration, predictive modeling, and aspects of cognitive computing.
