The Hole in Financial Wholeness
More than $410 billion dollars was donated to charity in 2017, 70% of which came from individuals. How, then, can it be that no consumer research exists on the topic of personal financial management -- no infographics or app solutions -- that includes charitable giving as a component within consumers' full financial picture? What's with that? There's no shortage of information that conveys how passionate and committed Millennials are about making a difference -- they intentionally work for (and invest in) companies, buy brands and support causes that demonstrably contribute to a better world. Due to our patented technology, intense data integration and use of AI and Machine Learning, the data gathered within our app will be like no other currently available in market. Researchers, retailers, marketers, manufacturers, advertisers, financial institutions, nonprofits will all benefit from the highly predictive, realtime information that will be available. The goal is to empower individuals and organizations to produce, position and promote products that are relevant and meaningful to all.

Agile & Beyond
Over the last two decades agile has gone from obscurity to ubiquity, evolving a lot along the way. Agile forerunners continuously push boundaries and realize major productivity gains as a result. But despite agile being everywhere these days, many data teams struggle to adopt it effectively. Even small agile misapplications can end up decreasing productivity instead of increasing it. This creates a growing productivity gap between data teams that use agile effectively and those that don’t, which can mean the difference between a data team being a competitive asset or a costly liability. In this talk, we’ll dig into modern agile concepts and how they can be applied to manage and run high-performing data teams starting from the basics and working up to recent trends in areas like DataOps, lean workflows, continuous delivery, and objective reliability management.

Don’t Let Your Data Strategy Crash from a Sugar High
The data hype machine continues to be in full effect.  There are very public statistics on the percentage of analytics and data efforts that fail outright, or at a minimum do not meet their advertised goals. As data volumes rise, so does the opportunity for risk and efforts to control your data consumption will often backfire. We will plan to cover a simple analogy, and will discuss behavioral metrics you can use on your organization to gauge the effectiveness of your data and analytics strategy.  Positive side effects will be accelerated adoption of both data & solutions, and the ability to connect your tribe of data ninjas to rise the tide of your entire organization.
