CHELMSFORD, Mass., June 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Organizations are using visual data discovery and predictive analytics to define patterns and trends in Big Data to make well-informed predictions about the future. The technology has yielded breakthroughs in everything from finding new energy sources and healthcare therapies to eradicating urban rodent populations.
At this week's Predictive Analytics World, Datawatch Corporation's (Nasdaq:DWCH) Dan Potter will show businesses how they can best harness the latest advances in this technology to make breakthrough business decisions.
In his keynote presentation titled Advanced Analytics for Any Data at Real-Time Speed, Potter will discuss how a new-found ability to prepare, incorporate, enrich and visualize streaming data for advanced visual analysis is essential for making timelier, high-impact business decisions in tough competitive markets. The event is being held at the Chicago Hilton.
"Organizations are stuck in the traditional mold of analytics asking the question 'What just happened' when they should be in a proactive mode of 'Tell me when something important is likely to occur'," Potter said. "Today, data is flowing into organizations at unheard-of speeds from a variety of sources, including streaming data from the Internet of Things. This multi-structured and real-time data contains the digital tea leaves revealing potential outcomes of business decisions, if only the data could be harvested, prepared and visualized in real-time. This presentation will show attendees how."
Potter is Chief Marketing Officer at Datawatch, where he is responsible for the worldwide marketing communications, product marketing and go-to-market strategies. Potter is an accomplished public speaker with numerous presentations delivered at major industry events.
Potter's presentation will take place on the second day of the event, June 10th, at 8:50 a.m. CT.
