Pushing the Boundaries of Strategy: The CEO and Advanced Information Visualization

CEOs are perhaps the most challenge clients for advanced business visualization.   They are highly time constrained and subject to diverse and rapidly changing information needs.  At the same time, many command significant resources and have broad information networks from which to tap for insights.  Finally, they have a strong bias toward information they can execute on rather than information that is theoretical or aesthetically pleasing.   In this keynote address, Peter Evans, Vice President for the Center for Global Enterprise, will explore what it takes for advanced business visualization to break into the C-Suite.  Drawing on his experience reporting to CEOs, as well as current experience working with CEOs around the world, he will discuss current opportunities and gaps that face use of advanced information visualization techniques aimed at top executives.

Analytics is dead. Long live Synthetics and Genetics!
Experience with large-scale analytics applications for business professionals provides valuable information about practical do’s and don’ts. However, needs in business that will become more pressing in the future require a more radical change of perspective from visual analysis, to synthesis and genesis.
