Analytics visionaries and experts to gather October 21-23 in Milan

MILAN, Oct. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ANALYTICS EXPERIENCE -- There is a lot of hype and jargon surrounding analytics and artificial intelligence (AI). Yet put simply data holds the key: when used properly, your data can set your organisation up for success for years to come. So why not find out how to make analytics a reality delivering tangible results at Analytics Experience 2019 in Milan on Oct. 21-23?

"But the reality is that technology alone won't make a difference unless it's properly deployed to help organizations benefit from analytically-driven decisions every single day. That's why we want to share real-life examples from our customers, about how analytics and AI can detect credit-card fraud, manage banking risk, drive personalized customer relationships, identify promising drug therapies and a lot more besides."
