The presentation will unveil ClearStory and demonstrate a new integrated Application and Platform that enables businesses to speed access and analysis across disparate data sources – both internal and external, and allows more people to interact and consume insights across the organization. McDaniel will also share his perspective on the next era of data analysis based on his 25 years of data science experience.
