Event Tracks

Vision & Strategy

It is impossible to build an organization’s strategy without data and analytics. To create a data-driven vision and strategy, organizations need a successful data analytics strategy.  The two go hand and hand. In this track, we look to learn the answers some questions.

Data Quality, Management, & Governance

Data quality, data management, and governance are critical.  People can only make the correct data-driven decisions if they have access to accurate data.  Without quality data, data can not only be useless, but it could also be dangerous.  Data quality is a top problem.

Descriptive, Diagnostic, & Predictive Analytics

They are used by financial institutions for fraud detection, by healthcare providers to prevent hospital-acquired infections and diagnosing abnormalities at initial stages, by consumer goods producers to optimize pricing and inventory management, and manufacturers to optimize operations.

Case Studies & Applied Analytics

Data and analytics are driving and inspiring change and improvement across all sectors- government, healthcare, business, environment, and beyond..

I really enjoyed the opportunity to attend the presentations and talk with faculty and the customer for the river quality study.

Well done! I had never been to Harrisburg University until about two months ago, but since then I have been to three different events there and they have all been excellent. Keep up the great work! HU is one of the region’s crown jewels!

My team was able to attend together. We will use the information and practices we learned at the summit to take forward in our decision making process related to business analytics. We now know more of the possible so we will challenge those we work with to strive to broaden our use of applicable technological/analytical innovations.
