What do winning the Americas Cup, predicting crime in LA, understanding casino gamblers spending partners, exposing real estate fraudulent schemes have in common? They all relied on MDM to deliver results, fast, trusted and sustainable.

Let’s learn more about all this business cases, be inspired to take our projects further and grab the keys to get started.

Based on Stanford’s highly rated “Tame Data for Big Insight” class from Continuing Studies program, this session combines real case studies with known data best practices in an interactive format where business meets IT to take away concrete next steps to engage on a solid roadmap today.
