Moving Your Business Forward With Analytics!

Lots of decision makers and thought leaders are talking about it, but what is it?  How is it collected?  What can be done with it?  What are the analytic tools available to businesses?  The "Big Data Dance" forum will help to answer these questions and to get leaders thinking about how to harness the power of information generated every second of every day.
