Two half-day events that will show analytics and marketing professionals how to use their data to drive real action and tell attention-getting stories will take place on June 5 in Arlington, Virginia, at the Artisphere, hosted by the Digital Analytics Association (DAA).
The first in a series of Storytelling Workshops for digital analysts starts at 9 a.m. A Symposium on the theme "Getting to Simple: Turning Complex Data into Actionable Outcomes" starts at 12:30 p.m., followed by a reception for attendees. The DAA full-day Base Camp workshops will also be offered on June 4 and 6.
At the Symposium, DAA members and non-members who want to move past the tactical basics of counting retweets, tracking email campaigns, and adding up conversions are invited to learn higher-level strategies for collecting data, such as bringing together multiple data channels, and other ways to create a compelling data narrative and make a difference in site performance.
These topics and more will be addressed by expert speakers; there will also be an exhibitors' showcase, along with opportunities for attendees to connect informally with like-minded local professionals. The registration fee for the Symposium is $25 for DAA members and $75 for non-members. More information and registration for the event are available on the DAA website.
Symposium topics and speakers include:
- Using Multiple Data to Find Actionable Moments -- Bill Tancer, Experian Hitwise
- Top 10 Ways Analytics Changed My Marketing Strategy -- Amy Ganderson & Amy Bastian, The Nature Conservancy
Panel: Multi-channel Analytics -- Perspectives from a Brand, an
Agency, and a Vendor
Moderator: Brendan Curley, ForeSee
Panelists: Steve Harris, Capital One; Aaron Maass, Maass Media; Phil Gross, Visual IQ
- Audiences Still Search. A Lot. How to Use Search Data to Understand Them and Ensure You're Really Solving Their Problems -- Vanessa Fox, author
- CSC's Journey to Digital Marketing Best Practices -- Nick Panayi, CSC
Digital analytics professionals who want to learn how to tell compelling stories with their data – ones that will capture high-level managers' attention – are invited to sign up for the DAA's new Storytelling Workshop, 9 a.m. until noon on June 5, also at the Artisphere. Storytelling is a popular concept in data analysis, but it’s one thing to understand the value of crafting persuasive and factual stories from collected data, and yet another to know how to do it. Workshop attendees will learn how to avoid common storytelling mistakes, as well as the right way to tell stories based on data.
Storytelling instructor is Meta S. Brown, who translates analytics into plain English and who has helped organizations across the globe increase their profits with the help of statistics, data mining and text mining. She is the author of Data Mining for Dummies. Workshop registration is $295 for DAA members and $395 for non-members.
Education is an important part of the DAA's mission to help organizations illuminate and overcome the challenges of data acquisition, exploration, deduction and application.
In addition to its Symposiums and new Storytelling Workshops, the DAA also holds instructor-led workshops called Base Camps across North America, delivering knowledge to analytics professionals in place: analytics, web and marketing professionals, in agencies and enterprises, and small-business owners who use data and technology extensively. The longstanding and very popular Base Camp courses “Introduction to Web Analytics 101” and “Applying Web Analytics” will take place on June 4 and June 6 at the Artisphere in Arlington.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business.

This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
