Level:  Business/Strategic

Algebraix Data has spent five years developing the algebra of data, the unifying language of data. Among the algebra of data’s many disruptive effects, it will fuel a whole new ecosystem of software for integrating and analyzing data, finally making business analytics readily accessible to the vast majority of enterprises.

Companies with advanced business analytic capabilities outperform rivals because they make better decisions, make them faster and execute them better. However, implementing business analytics has been prohibitively expensive for all but the largest of companies – until now.

Influential analyst, author, and IT expert Robin Bloor, PhD, will provide a concise overview of the algebra of data, which is also described in detail in a new book by Bloor. Algebraix COO Rich Benci will provide insight how Algebraix Analytics is being deployed in an affordable and non-disruptive manner.

Attendees of this session will be provided access to the Algebraix Math Library. Advanced copies of Bloor’s book will be available at the conference.
