The Data Analytics Summit brings together hundreds of professionals to engage in topics related to data analytics. Attendees represent the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as well as representatives from federal and local governments, non-profit organizations, and the private sector. Attendee demographics are a mix among practitioners, front-line staff, and executive management. Past events have reached over 300 attendees!

This year’s theme is:

Leading the Way – The Data Driven Organization

We will be supporting this theme with the following track themes:

  • Track 1: Data Story Telling and Visualization
  • Track 2: The Artificial Intelligence Continuum: from Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to Deep Learning
  • Track 3: Data Management, Governance & Privacy
  • Track 4: Data Analytics: business intelligence, modeling, and applications of big data


Event Tracks

Data Story Telling and Visualization

Proposals for this track can include topics that demonstrate the value of data storytelling, visualization or give significant value in the creation of these techniques. Proposals may answer the questions why they are important and how they inspire action. The use of case studies and specific examples of organizations using these techniques is encouraged. 

The Artificial Intelligence Continuum: from Robotic Program Automation to Deep Learning

Seeking proposals with demonstrated examples of how organizations have employed AI and RPA to enhance processes, reduce costs, and improve delivery of service. Use cases illustrating the applications of Machine Learning and Deep Learning are strongly encouraged. 

Data Management, Governance & Privacy

Proposals should address the importance of not only managing data but ensuring security and best practices for implementing data systems that meet the regulatory and functional needs of organizations. Case studies and program implementations for meeting the ever-changing data regulations organizations are facing are encouraged. 

Data Analytics: business intelligence, modeling, and applications of big data

Proposals for this track should address not just data but how it is modeled and how it is applied for better outcomes. How do we harness the value and insights from the data we collect? What are the best practices, tools and training processes that organizations must implement amidst a changing landscape of regulation.


This (2021 Data Analytics Summit) is the second conference I’ve attended that was hosted by Harrisburg University, I know to expect a great event, knowledgeable speakers, and wonderful opportunities for networking every time! 

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.
