Flaik: Better Data, Better Ski Schools? Challenges & Opportunities for Real Time Data-Driven Decision Making
Steve Kenny, CEO, flaik

Calusa 10 

We’ve all heard the promises that big data will make our businesses better. Better data = better decisions = better lessons = good times for everyone. But how do we move past this awkward stage where we get overwhelmed with raw data or are delivered sanitized post-season reports when you can no longer change the outcome? How do we find insights in the data that can support us in making better decisions in real time? What is the difference between high level vanity data that just makes us feel good and data that is actually useful and actionable? And what kind of questions would really help us to answer with data anyway? Come help us explore these questions.
