    Srinivasan Sankar, Data Leader, Hanover Insurance

  • “Great networking and practical support PLUS visionary discussions”

    Gloria Kupferman, Chief Data Strategy Officer, American Hospital Association

  • “Great combination of general sessions, breakouts and networking opportunities. There's some IBM-specific content, but it's limited and value add”

    Andrew Salesky, SVP & Global Data Officer, Charles Schwab
