Technology drives Innovation and Innovation leads to increased Productivity: economic, social, and environmental productivity. As a technology, Data Analytics is a driver of innovation and is fundamental to increasing Productivity in today’s world. It is both a vertical and a horizontal, cutting across all sectors of society.
We are seeing users move beyond traditional Business Intelligence techniques to Next Generation Analytics. Next Generation Analytics includes exploration and discovery and advanced analytics such as predictive and prescriptive analytics. It includes Visual Analytics, which allows the user to explore the data and resulting analysis visually often leading to a better understanding of the data. The Internet of Things requires the application of analytics to streaming data to enable real time or near real time decision-making. Next Generation Analytics will drive innovation by providing context to information and enable better and faster decision-making.
The theme for InfoVision 2018 is Next Generation Analytics: Data-Driven Innovation. The Conference will be a must for both academics and industry.
