Does Simplifying Access to Data Make Us Smarter?
The buzz: Is faster ‘smarter”? You don’t need to be a statistician to access sophisticated analytics online and run them incredibly fast. But despite the powerful tools available to all companies, many organizations still spend too much time gathering data and too little analyzing and interpreting it. Will disseminating the tools to all company levels enable superior decisions? Is data quality still a challenge? Are your board’s requests for analytics giving them too many choices that slow them down? The experts speak. Derek Loranca, Aetna: “Any time scientists disagree, it's because we have insufficient data. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem… (Neil deGrasse Tyson). Gil Gomez, IBM: “Your data is talking. Are you listening?” Timo Elliott, SAP: “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted” (William Bruce Cameron).

Do we have a say? The experts speak. Tim Barker, DataSift: “Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living” (Nicholas Negroponte).
