Gartner Data and Analytics Summit Texas, US, March 9 2017 – Day 5 – In the Mind of an Analyst

I started the day feeling bad.  My voice sounds pretty rough and week so I asked my colleague Saul Judah to take my presentation at 10.30am today.  I actually started the day at 8am with my “data hub” presentation.  The room was very busy and I tried to get through without losing much enthusiasm for what is, for me, a very exciting new research topic.  Did you see my “hub” toys?









Thankfully Saul did agree to present my second deck today – so I took over his 1-1’s while he helped me out.

After a load of 1-1’s the Summit concluded.  Alas we didn’t head home – we went off to our team meeting/offsite that lasts today and half of tomorrow.  Planning for rest of 2017 and beyond.

Here is a final summary of my 1-1’s and other interactions:
