IBM Analytics University 2018: Take yourself back to school!


Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here in the United States, students are ready to be out of school and enjoy their summer. But wherever you are, now is the time to think about continuing your own professional education — or even sharing your knowledge as a presenter — at one of the IBM Analytics University events presented by IDG Communications this autumn.

These are the leading events for learning how IBM Analytics solutions can be put to use in any organization, and there are two opportunities to attend: one in Stockholm on September 17–20, and one in Miami on October 2–5.

Why you should attend Analytics University

Unlike some schools, we can promise you this: no boring lectures! At either of these events, you’ll learn new skills, build your credentials and find out from clients, partners and IBM experts how IBM Analytics solutions can transform your business.

As you participate in hands-on workshops, in-depth discussions and product demonstrations, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Network with more than 1,000 business leaders, analysts, data scientists, IT professionals and subject matter experts
  • See how products like IBM Cognos Analytics, IBM Planning Analytics and IBM Data Science Experience work individually and in concert to drive stronger decisions
  • Get the inside scoop on deployment and management from successful IBM clients
  • Learn new ways to leverage IBM Analytics solutions to formulate more effective operational goals, predict future opportunities and threats and improve analytic capabilities across your organization
  • Learn strategies from experts that illuminate better paths to business performance
  • Experience the latest technologies from IBM Business Partners

Our product team will also give you the latest information on current offerings, new releases and the future direction of the entire IBM Analytics portfolio.

Over the course of three days, you’ll learn from more than 100 sessions in six distinct tracks:

  1. Unite: Combine solutions to drive innovation
    Recommended for executives, managers and analytics leaders
  2. Plan & Report: Enable continuous and agile planning
    Recommended for finance professionals, business users and IT administrators

Why you should be a presenter at Analytics University

Those who can, teach! Many sessions will be led by IBM executives and product managers. But the event will be even more robust thanks to contributions across a range of topics by other IBMers, business partners, customers, analysts and industry experts.

This is your chance to build your reputation as a leading analytics professional as you share your expertise and inspire innovation among your industry peers. We are seeking submissions across all seven tracks for the following session types:

  • Best practices and industry stories — Customer, partner or IBM-led use-case stories (45 minutes)
  • Technical deep dives — Breakout sessions exploring technical themes (45 minutes)
  • Analytics experts — Sessions led by market analysts or subject matter experts (45 minutes)
  • Hands-on training — Demos and hands-on labs (2 hours)

The call for papers closes on June 22, 2018. After all proposals are reviewed, invitations to present at Analytics University will be extended in July.

Learn new skills. Build credentials. Drive transformative change.

Thank you for your interest, Jonathan. We don’t have anything on the agenda for the UK at the moment, but keep your eye on https://www.ibm.com/events/analytics for future events there. You might also have a look at our UK-specific site for IBM Analytics, and especially the page describing the IBM Client Centre London.

Thanks for your interest, Gary. As far as I know, dates and locations for Analytics University 2019 have not been set yet. I’ll check with my colleagues who organize them and let you know if I find out anything different. I’ll also pass along your appeal to convene them closer to the Pacific.
