The State of Analytics: Data Rich, Insights Poor

Even though retail and consumer goods companies view analytics as extremely strategic, they struggle to effectively leverage it across the enterprise. EKN Research has studied this trend and its findings highlight the magnitude of the challenge and the reality of lagging big data adoption.

At the Retail and Consumer Goods Analytics Summit, Gaurav Pant, senior vice president, research, EKN, will provide attendees with an exclusive preview of the data from EKN’s 4th Annual Future of Analytics Study that compares and contrasts the state of analytics in the retail and consumer goods industries. 
Pant drives the conceptualization and delivery of the research services supported by the EKN analyst team. He has 10 years of experience in IT consulting across North America and has driven engagements with some of the leading retailers in the US including five of the top 10. A veteran of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Pant led many of their first implementations in retail and has expertise across multiple areas including analytics, multi-channel, mobile and loyalty.
The 2015 Retail and Consumer Goods Analytics Summit will be held April 29-May 1 at The Drake Hotel, Chicago, Illinois. The conference will feature keynotes from retail and consumer goods leaders, peer-to-peer exchanges, networking opportunities and relationship building.
