Insight Analytics: How to make intelligent decisions based on knowledge and analysis
It’s better to advise your organization based on knowledge and analysis, rather than instinct and guesswork. With Insight Analytics™ you can start using data proactively, as a strategic asset to identify trend lines in your IT operations, because you can finally access your data and trust and what you find.

When and where:
Tuesday 5th
10.00-11.00 a.m.
W204C Boardroom 2

Client Governance. Are you doing the right things? Are you doing them right?
The increasing amounts of data generated by your infrastructure is a goldmine — if you are able to access it, and use it right!
If you can establish baselines and follow trend lines, it means you can monitor progress, document the value of your investments, and control and prioritize your budgets.
Kent talks about how to use all that data, everyone is talking about, and turn it into good client governance and valuable trend lines.

When and where:
Thursday 7th:
2:30 p.m.
