IBM Performance 2012

Smarter Analytics. Smarter Outcomes.

Smarter Analytics at the center of attention!

IBM Performance is an annual event centered around analytics. This year it was held on 13 November at La Hulpe, the theme being ‘Smarter Analytics. Smarter Outcomes’. The successful event attracted more than 400 participants.

During a variety of plenary and break-out sessions the visitors could become more familiar with the possibilities offered by analytics: transforming data from a variety of sources into essential decision information. Through practical stories, workshops and demonstrations they discovered interactively just how they could improve the performance of their organizations in a host of fields.

The program was aimed at a number of target groups: from professionals in finance, marketing and sales, IT and risk management, to many other business professionals. In the morning there were also special User Group Meetings for users of IBM SPSS, IBM Cognos and IBM EMM solutions. Our most sincere thanks go to all the participants, speakers, partners, staff and of course all sponsors for their contributions to this highly successful day!
