Demystifying Analytics – free webinar series explaining the key concepts of Analytics to business executives

Austin, Texas - Mon, August 10, 2009
DataInfoCom Inc. is sponsoring a free webinar series to help educate today's busy executives on the key concepts of Analytics. The title of the series is "Behind the veil - Scientific disciplines enabling Analytics & Optimization" and it will contain several episodes, each episode focused on a particular scientific discipline. The first episode of this series will air live (30 minutes) on August 20, 2009, Thursday, at 12 noon Eastern (11 AM Central, 9 AM Pacific); the topic will be Operations Research and its 7 key concepts, in plain English.
Analytics is all over the news these days, especially in the business press. A simple Google search of the word analytics produces about 100 million entries! Even with this much noise - unfortunately, a lot of it is just that, "noise" - the largest potential beneficiaries of analytics (i.e., the executives in large corporations and the officials in government organizations) still lack high-level understanding of the fundamental scientific concepts behind analytics. DataInfoCom wants to change this state of affairs - DataInfoCom believes more these potential beneficiaries learn about analytics, better it will be for all involved. Moving forward, this newly acquired knowledge should enable these executives to make much more informed decisions about "if" and "how" analytics can be of value to their organizations. The understanding of analytics concepts, coupled with the executives' existing knowledge of their businesses, should facilitate the ‘right’ investments in Analytics & Optimization for the ‘right’ reasons, at the ‘right’ time, and with the ‘right’ returns.
DataInfoCom is proud to have two leading academics in the field of Operations Research - the science of decision management - as speakers for the first episode: Operations Research and its 7 key concepts, in plain English. They are Dr. John Hasenbein, Associate Professor, Operations Research & Industrial Engineering, University of Texas at Austin, and Dr. David P. Morton, Professor, Operations Research & Industrial Engineering, University of Texas at Austin.

"Analytics is not about pretty dashboards - at its best, analytics is about preventive actions to avoid a predicted issue, or, proactive actions to take advantage of a predicted opportunity. Operations Research plays a key role in enabling decisions that are actionable, timely, practical, and optimum. We believe most industry executives will find it well worth 30 minutes of their time to learn about Operations Research from Dr. Hasenbein and Dr. Morton," says Atanu Basu, CEO & President, DataInfoCom.
