CIPS Calgary Jan 22 Event: "Real-time operational intelligence in order to identify business opportunities or threats in a timely, proactive manner"
CIPS
Organizations today are realizing that their traditional BI solutions must be augmented with real-time operational intelligence in order to identify business opportunities or threats in a timely, proactive manner.

As organizations deal more and more with the increasing velocity, variety, and volume of data, architectures that combine Big Data and real-time operational intelligence solutions are going to become paramount.
