If you attend Information Builders' Summit 2012 in Orlando, you can hear Boris Evelson of Forrester Research, Cindi Howson of BI Scorecard, Rita Sallam of Gartner, and Mark Smith of Ventana Research.
Gerry Cohen, co-founder and president of IBI, will kick off the day with the 8AM General Session. All of the industry analysts will join Gerry there for a panel discussion on current BI trends led by IBI Chief Marketing Officer Michael Corcoron.
You can be sure all of the popular buzzwords will be used: Big Data, Predictive, Analytics, Mobile, Social, Cloud, Collaborative, Visual, just to name a few (I dare you to make a checklist and tally the results).
Starting at 11AM on Monday, there will be breakout sessions with each of the BI experts. There is no overlap, so you never have to pick one person over another. Here is the agenda for Summit 2012's Strategic Management Track of BI industry analysts:
11:00AM Boris Evelson will present "Agile BI: Overview, Trends, and Best Practices"
1:30PM Cindi Howson will present "Best Practices for BI Success"
2:45PM Rita Sallam will present "Playing Moneyball: Leveraging Analytics to Win in Your Organization"
4:00PM Mark Smith will present "Top Ten Best Practices in Predictive Analytics and Big Data"
