As we move into Industry 4.0, the phrase “Data is the new oil” has significant meaning, and everyone in both industry and academia are embracing data analytics in all aspects of life. There is a greater need for all of us to go from Data to Insight to Value. INFORMS Business Analytics is one of the premier conferences, and provides a great forum for 1,000+ leading analytics and industry professionals to share ideas, network, and learn about the possibilities that can be generated by analytics.
Austin, capital of Texas, is the fastest growing large city in the United States and the live music capital of the world! It will be the host city for our 2019 INFORMS Business Analytics Conference. JW Marriott, situated in the heart of the city, will be the conference venue, and we are sure the conference attendees will enjoy the hospitality of the Marriott and the warmth of the city of Austin.
We invite you to join us and be part of this leading conference in April 2019 in Austin, TX!
