Opening Keynote: The Future and the Analytics of Things
From cars to healthcare to oil and gas, industries are vaulting into the future with automation and sensors that provide information capable of building a new world order. Yet the Internet of Things produces just data until it’s turned into insights that change businesses – and entire sectors – where new stakeholders can communicate directly with the customer, shifting the competitive landscape forever. The opportunity is great, the risk even greater. We’ll dive deep into this prescient view of the not-too-distant future and the age of Analytics of Things.
Leading with Outcomes: A Panel Discussion on Selecting the Right Projects to Drive Business Value
Mining and analyzing data can yield great customer insights – but insights alone don’t change a business. Considering what outcomes you are looking for upfront can lead to more focused efforts that drive business value more quickly. Our panel of practitioners will share techniques and examples of outcomes-driven efforts that will help you implement this practice at your organization.
A Key to Success: Engaging the Right Business Users
West Coast growth and value-oriented food retailer Smart & Final Stores, Inc. uses its customer and product data in many ways to drive revenue and customer intimacy. The company has made significant strides in recent years in leveraging mobile and equipping staff on the floor with quick access to key pieces of information. With adoption and other key metrics for success, VP of IT Rich Stefani has seen mobile projects roll out with rave reviews and others that fall flat. He will share some of his cutting-edge initiatives – on both sides of the fence – and lessons learned in a lively session that covers mobile, user experience, data, gamification and more.
IoT: The Internet of Trains
IoT and data analytics are not only changing the way Siemens operates trains. They are changing the business possibilities rail operators have with their customers. This session will use the example of rail to present some views on how IoT will change the world of industrial processes as we know it today.

Transforming Operations for a Data-Driven World
Insights from analytics can change a business – when it’s set up to respond to the findings. At supercenter grocer Meijer, Inc., a recent digital transformation has expanded not just what kind of data it examines, but how it is accessed (through collaborative self-service). With agile processes throughout and flexibility at the edge for the business, Meijer executives have created a system to drive more value from analytics. Join them and learn from their experience.
Organizational Culture for Success
The biggest challenge in any business initiative is culture. How can an organization’s leaders break down barriers and build a modern business culture that values collaboration, action, agility, innovation and more? What organizational structures best align with your objectives and goals? How do you get employees on board? This session will explore the elements of culture and how to shift a culture that needs adjusting to meet today’s business challenges.

Innovating for the Future
As innovation becomes increasingly crucial for businesses to stay relevant, organizations are putting new emphasis on it. From hackathons to tech incubators and acquisitions, organizations in non-tech industries are becoming tech companies in their own right in pursuit of the next big idea that will propel their business forward. At the Bay Clubs, CIO Aaron Gette’s approach is two-fold: evaluating startups, and hiring staff with an entrepreneurial mindset who are proactive about getting out of the office to learn about new technologies. In this session, you’ll learn how Aaron has used this access to nascent tech to advance his organization well ahead of other companies – and where failing fast has driven lessons learned.
