Insights to action

A TRANSFORMATIVE APPROACH TO BUSINESS ANALYTICS

12 October 2016

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

To enable innovation, insights, experimentation and discovery, Universities must attempt to harness the value of data in driving more informative and effective decisions. The ease with which people interact and connect with people, devices, the internet and share content is increasing every day and these new sources of information are generating new possibilities for exploration, requiring new capabilities to be developed. Given the increasing volumes of data the problem is not that the data does not exist but shifts to how to make the data available, filter through the noise, reuse and scale initiatives and to generate insights that lead to action. This is a practical session that will focus on:

  • the challenges facing analytics initiatives

  • what we can do to deliver improved insights efficiently

  • how we can share knowledge and expertise and in partnership deliver shared business outcomes that lead to action.

This seminar will not be available online or recorded.
