In early March, more than 3,000 data and analytics leaders will gather in Grapevine, Texas for the 2018 Gartner Data and Analytics Summit. Microsoft is excited to sponsor this event and bring some of our best thought leaders and experts to meet with you to discuss how to drive data and analytics into the core of your business.

This event “provides the tools to build on the fundamentals of data management, business intelligence (BI), and analytics; harness innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT); and accelerate the shift toward a data-driven culture to lead the way to better business outcomes” according to Gartner.

We will showcase technologies across Business Intelligence, Machine Learning and AI, Big Data and Advanced Analytics & Business Applications solution areas to enable them to bring together people, data, and processes, and create value.
