Panel Discussion

This panel of technology practitioners will bring the world of predictive analytics to life and give examples of how they are using data to not only see the future, but to act upon it in unique ways.  We will look at how the data is collected, analyzed, trended, and correlated to create often life-saving suggestions to their clients.  This session will give you an opportunity to think creatively about how to transform your business with data – taking your business model and digitally enabling new opportunities, better ways to serve your customer, and insights that perhaps you have not thought about before.  The future is digital and digital is enabled by data – data that matters – data that can predict the future and prescribe a better plan and path forward.  No matter where you are along the business intelligence and analytics implementation/sustainment path, this session will offer valuable tips to help you better succeed with data in the digital age.

The Community Technology Leadership Program pilot kick-off session features Michael Curri, CEO of Strategic Networks Group (SNG), which conducted the 2016 broadband assessment for the State of Tennessee, broadband utilization in Chattanooga. For example, SNG found that business broadband utilization here is only 2% higher than the state average, and estimates that a modest increase in utilization by employers with less than 50 employees could create nearly 450 new jobs. The Community Technology Leadership Program is designed to tap this potential. Dr. Greg Laudeman, executive and founder Eduity, will preview the Community Technology Leadership Program (CTLP) pilot, and discuss how the program could impact the local economy. Eduity is conducting the CTLP pilot here over the next few months with support from the Mozilla Foundation’s Gigabit Community Fund. Attendees will have the opportunity to get involved in the discussion and participate in the CTLP pilot.
