Are you Hyper-Decisive? Announcing Real Business Intelligence 2019

I am pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2019 Real Business Intelligence® conference, the only industry event for business and IT communities focused completely on real world best practices and proven methods for business intelligence, analytics, information management, and performance management. 

The 2019 Real Business Intelligence Conference will be held May 14-15, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Tang Center in Cambridge, MA and will focus upon Digital Transformation: Driving Change with Data.

Digital enterprises must be hyper-decisive(TM) – instantaneously processing vast arrays of data and information and delivering actionable insights to a growing community of users. 

This year’s conference will explore the essentials of culture, technology, and process, helping attendees leverage and evolve current investments to emerge as successful, future-ready, and hyper-decisive enterprises.

Here are some of the extraordinary speakers that comprise our 2019 faculty:
