Surveys of data professionals showed that 40% of them spent over 20 hours per week preparing data, while only 12% of executives understood the impact of data on their organizations.

Imagine spending 50% to 80% less time in the grunt work of preparing data in Excel and PowerPoint, while making a bigger impact with data, and delivering insights from data that executives actually understand.

Artificial Intelligence-augmented state-of-the-art data analytics technologies like Microsoft Power BI empower regular business users to get more value from data analytics, faster. In this session, participants will learn how to leverage Artificial Intelligence and advanced analytics capabilities to support the management needs of project managers, portfolio managers and resource managers, by arranging data to support timely decision making, from the perspectives of Individual Projects, Portfolio of projects and the organization’s resources.

Increase your data analytics productivity, and elevate your business impact through self-service big data analytics:
1. AI Augmented data analysis and Data Science-lite.
2. Data Collaboration Apps
3. Automation of manual data analysis processes that are performed in Excel and PowerPoint today.

Lenzy Petty, Jr, is the founder of Data Analytics Technology Advantage LLC, a firm that specializes in deployment and training of state-of-the-art data analytics technologies that enable line of business professionals, who are not IT professionals or data scientists, to get more value from their data, in far less time.

The turning point for Lenzy came years ago while performing a sales analysis of product lines and customers.  An exhausting process of spending several days pleading with IT to run big data reports, several more days cutting and pasting tens of thousands of lines of data from one Excel sheet to another, and then more time building charts for PowerPoint slides, gave birth to a mission.  Today, with a mission of “training minds to insight” the world through data analytics technologies, his company empowers regular business users across diverse business functions to build and deploy IT-grade analytics that deliver more value for their organizations.

Lenzy holds an MBA from the University of Detroit/Mercy and a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry, and is a Microsoft Partner.
