Business Analytics: An Industrial Perspective

Abstract: As companies seek to leverage the growing amount of information available to them they also need to address uncertainty, both from a data management as well as an optimization perspective. In this talk, we will present examples of  business analytics projects in different industries, including retail, electronics and travel, and highlight the technical and management challenges in developing and delivering a solution.
