Hey, Philly Tech Community. Have you signed up for Phorum yet?
No matter what the answer may be, we hope you join us next Thursday, April 14 for Phorum 2016: Systems of Insight to learn how to take advantage of new approaches to business intelligence in today’s multi-channel ecosystem.
Here’s one way to get there.
You can win two tickets by signing up for the Technical.ly Philly newsletter and entering “Phorum” into the “Code” field by April 11, 2016. (If you’re already signed up for our Philly newsletter, sign up for our national newsletter and enter the same code.) We’ll announce the winner April 12.
Discounted tickets are available for Technical.ly readers by registering as a PACT member at the rate of $149 per ticket. Entrepreneurs may register for $99.
Designed specifically for business and technology executives, Phorum focuses on how enterprises maximize business value through technology and innovation. The daylong event features leading industry experts, business executives and cutting-edge technologists who will examine how companies collect actionable data, convert that data into usable information and apply institutional experience to turn information into insight.
Industry thought leaders as well as hands-on practitioners will provide engaging content, whether it be from our keynote, Paul DePodesta, panels or interactive discussions that are intended to help executives understand not just the technology, but how the technology can be pragmatically applied.
Need more convincing? Here are five key aspects you need to know for Phorum 2016:
- Hear a highly anticipated keynote address by Paul DePodesta, Chief Strategy Officer for the NFL’s Cleveland Browns and former vice president of player development for MLB’s New York Mets. Frequently recognized for his ability to scrutinize data and use it to assess talent and drive execution, DePodesta will be presenting “Moneyball: A data-driven approach to winning.” Paul was a focal point of the best-selling book and Oscar-nominated film of the same name. He’ll explore how your organization can drill through data to create an applicable analytics strategy and sharpen your company’s competitive edge.
- Discover the latest technologies inside the Phorum Demo Pit. Nine startups from the mid-Atlantic region will demonstrate their cutting-edge technologies and compete for Phorum’s “Best in Show” award. Check out who will be featured this year and get ready to connect with them next week.
- A new twist to the agenda has Nate Lentz, managing partner of Osage Venture Partners, hosting two “Meet the Entrepreneurs” sessions where the Demo Pit participants will pitch their innovations to a panel of judges and the audience.
- Check out the return of the Phorum Showcase where companies demonstrate their products and services to hundreds of enterprise decision makers on the East Coast.
With all of that said, Phorum 2016 is one event you will not want to miss. This year we’ll be at The Fillmore Philadelphia, one of the area’s hottest new venues.
I hope to see you next week at Phorum Philly 2016!-30-
