MILAN, Oct. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ANALYTICS EXPERIENCE -- There is a lot of hype and jargon surrounding analytics and artificial intelligence (AI). Yet put simply data holds the key: when used properly, your data can set your organisation up for success for years to come. So why not find out how to make analytics a reality delivering tangible results at Analytics Experience 2019 in Milan on Oct. 21-23?

Join us at the event that gathers more than 1,500 data scientists and business leaders who are passionate about analytics. The theme of this year’s conference is “Together we make analytics real” with a focus on how organizations get value from analytics in day-to-day operations.

That’s why we want to share real-life examples from our customers, about how analytics and AI can detect credit-card fraud, manage banking risk, drive personalized customer relationships, identify promising drug therapies and a lot more besides.”
