Upcoming Data Analytics Events in the Twin Cities

Mar 31, 2016 | Data

The Twin Cities have become a hub for awesome data analytics events, in large part due to user groups like Minneanalytics, but also because MN organizations have realized the value of data analytics and are trying to figure out how to make it work for them.

A few of us from SmartBase attended the People Analytics Conference [PACON] last week, organized by Minneanalytics. While our team often helps clients use their data to streamline business processes and make business decisions, it was interesting to hear the specifics of how Human Resource departments from around the US are leveraging people data. PACON gave us the opportunity to geek out about data but also learn from our peers – something that we find extremely valuable.

We want to share that value with you! We’ve compiled a list of upcoming analytics events in the Minneapolis/St Paul area – some that we’ll attend and others we only wish we could. [Has anyone invented a way to add more hours to the day?] Here they are:

Big Data and Analytics

University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis Campus:  Terrence Hall #252
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM (CDT)
1000 LaSalle Avenue Terrence Murphy Hall: Room 252, Minneapolis, MN 55403

The Details: ACHE-MN Chapter has invited John Olson, Ph.D., professor in the Operations and Supply Chain Management Department to present on a current research topic, “The Intersection of Analytics, Process Improvement, and Clinical Quality Management – what is the recipe for success?”


IoT Fuse: Conference 2016

University of St. Thomas – Schulze Hall
Friday, April 22, 2016 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CDT)

The Details: IoT Fuse is a yearly conference that unites accomplished doers, makers and hackers with the brightest executives, entrepreneurs and innovators. This event is ‘waitlist only’ but I suggest you sign up anyway. Minneanalytics is good at encouraging attendees who can’t make it to cancel their ticket on Eventbrite to let others claim a spot.

The Details: Big Data Everywhere is a half-day conference focused on Hadoop, Spark and other big data technologies that brings together users and developers to share their experience via technical sessions and user success stories. Tickets are only $49 – a steal for the quality of speakers and topics! Keep an eye out for the SmartBase Team – we’ll be attending this event.


Big Data Tech 2016

Normandale Partnership Center
Tuesday, June 7th, 2016  TBD
9700 France Ave S Bloomington, MN 55431

The Details: This is the 2nd Big Data Tech conference from Minneanalytics discussing the technology behind analytics. Tickets are not yet available for purchase – We’ll let you know when ticket sales open!
