BI and Analytics Leader Hosts Educational Events in Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Breda, and Mexico City

London, UK – 15 May 2017 – Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, will be hosting five International Summit meetings to discuss the latest developments in BI and analytics technology. The Summits are taking place in Frankfurt (18 May), London (23 May), Madrid (25 May), Breda (30 May), and Mexico City (19 July).

These free, one-day Summit events are designed to help customers and prospects get to know Information Builders better, as well as to learn about the latest trends in self-service BI and analytics and game-changing information management. These events will cover data visualization, In-Document Analytics, data governance, and big data, as well as today’s hot-button issue relating to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition to providing the latest product announcements and features, Summit will also offer best practices, customer use cases, and exciting keynotes from industry leaders throughout the day. The afternoon breakout sessions are our best way to demonstrate how to use data and BI and analytics to drive innovation throughout various organizations.

This year, we are excited to include many of our partners in each of our events. A recent addition to the Analytics Accelerator program is Technology Solutions, formerly a division of Avnet and now part of Tech Data.
