  Plachy & Norton  
Learn how IBM has successfully leveraged analytics across the enterprise using case studies in the areas of supply chain, human resources, finance, information technology and more.


Emily Plachy and Maureen Norton, authors of the new book of the same title, will tell you how IBM has successfully leveraged analytics across the enterprise. The speakers will share valuable real-world perspectives on what works (and doesn't work) and how you can start or accelerate your own transformation.  Case studies will be presented in the areas of supply chain, human resources, finance, information technology, and more.  IBM has applied big data and analytics as not just a technology, but as a smarter way to do business.
