Patrick Schwerdtfeger speaks on four (4) primary topics.

Data: everybody has more of it today than they did ten years ago, or even ten months ago. But what should you do with it? How can you make money with it? The first step is to reveal the wants and needs hidden inside the data, but the more important step is to convert those wants and needs into profitable services through algorithms. Algorithms will drive future profits but success requires creativity, something that doesn’t always come naturally to engineers. Patrick’s keynote program reviews a series of case histories and success stories where companies have made the leap from data accumulation to increased profits, inspiring creative ideas and offering tactical guidance for engineers and executives alike.
