professional speakers from different industries such as: Michelle Crowe the Chief
Marketing Officer of e-worc, Brent Dudley President of 68 Ventures or Brian Mooneyham,
VP, Analytics, Decision Support and Data Visualization, Operations at Wells Fargo.
During panel discussions, the speakers exchanged their knowledge and views on important topics such as data governance and workforce challenges in analytics. Additionally the speakers presented current data analytics insights into reporting, visualization, and storytelling.
Besides business professionals, students from the University of South Alabama, Troy University, and Springhill College attended the SABRE Analytics Summit, to learn about data analytics and how to become a data analytics expert.
“Just like we intended, the event has helped us jumpstart forming an analytics community in the Mobile area.” Said center Assistant Director, Jana Stupvasky. “We have been receiving good feedback about topics of interest for future sessions, panels and even workshops. We will carefully evaluate all the feedback and work towards making next year’s event even better.”
