Analytics Hero's,What did you think about the event? What did you like and what could we do better. Special interested in Community Day feedback, but I take all input :).
thanks for attending the event
I've attended IBM THINK in the past where it was a sea of people and a struggle to attend sessions. From that perspective this conference was much easier to get around in. I didn't like the fact that hands-on labs were first come, even though I was there 30 minutes early the rooms were all ready full. Internet access was also very spotty for users as well as presenters which affect many of the sessions. I still miss the old days where there were sessions showing off tips and tricks using Analytics (reports, dashboards, etc). Its these type of sessions that get me fired up and then I take that back to my organization.I did appreciate the access I had to the IBM executives, being able to ask pointed questions and then to follow up with other IBM technical experts. That was also most worth the trip alone. Vendor booths were ok although there were not that many. Lucky the ones I wanted were there but had I been less experienced it would have been very underwhelming.I concur with others that the mix of Planning and Analytics was troublesome. Many of the session write ups talked about road maps but never did get into it during the session. I came away without much vision to what IBM has planned for CA.Overall I'd give it a 7 out of 10; worth it but still needs work.
