Business Analytics (Mar 26-27)

Utilities find themselves inundated with a diversity of data across all lines of their business. Business analytics professionals function as a critical link in analyzing and interpreting information to improve systems and operations, maintain organizational health and ultimately improve the bottom line. These professionals gather semi-annually to discuss asset management, business intelligence, key metrics and dashboard insights, enterprise risk management, pricing and rate strategies, and project management best practices.
