The Experience Economy: What It Means for Business and You
The buzz: “Welcome to the experience economy, where—as the Harvard Business Review so eloquently put it—a company intentionally uses services as the stage, and goods as props, to engage individual customers in a way that creates a memorable event (Daniel Newman, www.forbes.com). The experience economy is here. It’s live 24/7, it's emotional, it's global, it’s powerful and it's influencing the way we live, work and do business. But how can businesses manage all of that to stay relevant? By collecting experience X-data at every meaningful touchpoint and combining it with operational O-data, then analyzing and understanding the experience gaps and what to do about them. The experts speak. Bruce Temkin, Qualtrics XM Institute: “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem” (Captain Jack Sparrow). Timo Elliott, SAP: “If you have to be naked, you’d better be buff” (Don Tapscott). Join us for The Experience Economy: What It Means for Business and You.

Predictive vs Augmented Analytics: Finding the Why
The buzz: “Data is not like a vitamin that you can just pop in your mouth and be done with it. In fact, data, by itself, is totally useless to your business” (Bill Su).

Hanno Schoklitsch, Kaiserwetter Energy Asset Management: “We can’t change the wind but we can adjust our sails” (Aristotle).
