University of Virginia

Business Intelligence Congress: Dec 11-12, 2010

The Advance Program is now available.

Keynote Speaker:

Thornton May is a futurist, educator and author. His extensive experience researching and consulting on the role and behaviors of “C” level executives in creating value with information technology has won him an unquestioned place on the short list of serious thinkers on this topic. Thornton combines a scholar’s patience for empirical research, a stand-up comic’s capacity for pattern recognition and a second-to-none gift for storytelling to address the information technology management problems facing executives. The editors at eWeek honored Thornton, including him on their list of Top 100 Most Influential People in IT. The editors at Fast Company labeled him ‘one of the top 50 brains in business.’ Thornton has recently written a new book, The New Know: Innovation Powered by Analytics.

All paid registrants will receive a signed copy of The New Know.
