What do spies and startups have to do with the upcoming Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in Dallas?   The opportunity to learn from organizations outside your typical industry or size – from spy agencies who must manage and analyze the world’s large amount data to the nimble startups who will be tomorrow’s disruptors.  If you are a data and analytics leader looking to transform your organization and increase efficiency while at the same time becoming more agile, you have the opportunity to attend two sessions that promise to give you a blend of both.

Here are the specifics for these vanguard sessions:

TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018 / 3:00 PM – 3:30 PM
How to Transform and Run Your Data and Analytics Organization Like a Startup
Most data and analytics organizations are inwardly focused rather than operating their team like a startup. Leaders are now looking at ways to not only transform how the team thinks and acts but also at ways to drive innovation. In this thought-provoking session, data and analytics leaders will learn best practices on how to transform and run their organizations like a startup.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 2018 / 3:00 PM – 3:30 PM
Five Best Practices Data and Analytics Leaders Can Learn From Spy Agencies
The primary mission of a spy agency is to collect, analyze, and share intelligence to help government and military leaders make better informed strategic and tactical decisions. While the internal workings of most spy organizations is classified, much can be learned from best practices found in publicly available sources and applying it to the business world. A must attend session for data and analytics leaders looking to create the next world-class analytics organization.
