The BI + Analytics conference is just around the corner, starting Monday, February 19, in Huntington Beach, CA.  As there are several opportunities for learning and networking, I thought I would highlight some of the sessions I will be attending.

I am hoping to attend Hybrid Analytics Use Cases

Next I am assisting Jie Deng with her presentation SAP Lumira Version 2.1:Overview, Strategy & Roadmap

With last week's askSAP call announcements I am sure this will be a great session and Jie is good at getting all questions answered and explaining everything.

 

Next I am moderating Cleanse Your Palette: The Only Two Charting Color Palettes You Will Ever Need

On Tuesday I am moderating Boston Properties’ Sarbanes-Oxley Journey & The BI Team’s Role in SOX Compliance

This should be interesting as I haven't seen many topics on this

 

Next I am conflicted - do I attend Live Data in the A&D Boardroom: L3 is Working Around Limitations in the Secure Cloud with Jason Shearer or  Designing a Design Studio Dashboard: From a Vision to Reality with fellow ASUG volunteer Shawn Cooper

 

Next I am also conflicted but I am leaning toward attending Timo Elliott session Your Analytics Future: Looking Beyond Tomorrow

 

Saving "the best for last" I am assisting Top 10 Ways to Squeeze Value from SAP BI & Analytics Investments with the great Ina Felsheim

 

Wednesday is workshop day, and I recommend attending this workshop on SAP Analytics Cloud with Ingo Hilgefort

Above are the contests; one year I won the prize at SAP for Utilities - it was a lot of fun.

 

See you there?
