Lisa Dodson - Sr. Manager, SAS
Breakthroughs in connectivity and compute power are giving us the power to collaborate and solve problems we never could before. As analytics evolve from a force that helps organizations to a force that drives them, we are seeing the dawn of an Analytics Economy. In this economy, data is the natural resource, insights are the currency, and there’s a fundamental change in how value is created. In this presentation, we’ll discuss how to unlock the potential of this new economy, with an emphasis on artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. We’ll also examine the need for a unifying platform that makes analytics accessible to everyone, everywhere – and explain how such a platform can turn a world of data into a world of intelligence.

Data and Analytics Executives have seen the potential for Artificial Intelligence but have struggled to make it a valuable opportunity for the Enterprise. The largest inhibitor to applications of AI is the shortage of intellectuals with the technical skills to implement AI and machine learning, and then retain them long enough to drive effective changes and outcomes. Going forward, it is critical to develop the necessary skills and identify the best candidates to promote as potential AI leaders. In this session hear best practices and use cases for advancing skills for artificial intelligence.

•Determine where talent is coming from and how to attract those practitioners 
•Create incentives for employee engagement and retention
•Positioning the team and establishing a talent development effort that fits the goals of the business
