What’s Changed at the Practice/Analytics Conference?

by Harlan Harris on April 1st, 2014

This is my second INFORMS Practice/Analytics conference. I first attended three years ago, in Chicago, when I was working on schedule and location optimization for an educational services company. At the time, I was impressed by the technical and business chops on display, but felt that the conference felt old-fashioned, and out of touch with the highly dynamic and rapidly changing analytics marketplace that I was seeing in the tech industry and in the emerging field of data science.

How much has changed in the last few years? Here are some anecdotes and thoughts.

Do these anecdotes resonate with you? Do you have more? Do you have data to back up or knock down any of the above? Leave a comment, find me in the hallways, or tweet me @harlanh!
