Event description


The world of data analytics, business intelligence and business analytics is changing so fast that it can be difficult to keep abreast of the latest developments.

eBECS is a global specialist in this area and we would like to share our knowledge with you.

Join our one-day workshop to learn about the rapidly-changing world of advanced BI, IoT opportunities and the operational efficiencies they are delivering to your peers. You will also hear a real-life example of how Berendsen, an industrial laundry service provider, increased its operational efficiencies by using these tools.

This is not a technical workshop; it is aimed at business managers who seek insight to make better-informed decisions and ultimately drive growth and profitability. We will demonstrate how to present business intelligence as a decision-making tool and to get the most out of your data.

With plenty of time for your questions, this session will be a great way to get to know the importance of business intelligence and how you can get the best from your data.
