Don't miss this opportunity to network and learn more about IBM Analytics. Michigan's Analytics User Group is where IT professionals meet to learn, discuss and exchange ideas around analytics and IBM technologies. Learn about industry trends, as well as the latest technologies for our analytics-based solutions! Both technical and business users can gain valuable insight from topics at our quarterly events. Membership is open to any licensed user of a product produced by IBM Analytics or any of its subsidiaries residing in the US. IBM business partners and independent consultants are also welcome members.


Tentative Agenda Includes:

This User Group we going to try something a little different. Based on feedback we've received from the past few user groups we've decided to provide more clarity in the agenda by assigning designate tracks based on user roles. We've identified 3 main roles we going to focus on for this quarters user group:

  • Business Analyst: Everything front end analytics from Reporting, BI, Planning, Data Discovery, and other LOB focused data visualization
  • Data Scientist: Focusing on Advanced Analytics within IBM, the open source community, and Machine Learning
  • Data Engineer: Managing databases, data warehouses, data governance, data quality, migration of data, and other topics related to data management.

These tracks are going to be all within the same room. Business Analyst track will be full day, Data Scientist & Data Engineer will be half day. You don't need to subscribe to any given track and can bounce around if topics interest you in multiple tracks, however we hope this provides some clarity as to what sessions are most relevant to you!
