CEO Greta Roberts Talks Democratization of Analytics with SAP

When Talent Analytics CEO Greta Roberts presented on the International Institute for Analytics Office Hours webcast in January 2012, she said the analysis of people and performance data together was a logical innovation, like adding wheels to suitcases.

Between all the momentum generated by the results of the landmark 2012 Analytics Professionals Study, highlighted in late April in MIT Sloan Management Review and partner events like her presentation on predictive analytics at Sapphire Now, Predictive Analytics World & IIA’s CAO Summit, Greta’s own “suitcase on wheels” is racking up plenty of mileage!

Here’s a summary of recent and upcoming Q2 2013 partner events Talent Analytics is proud to participate in.
