"We are pleased and proud to feature Mr. Wayne W. Eckerson, Director of TDWI Research, a respected analyst and distinguished National TDWI presenter, as our facilitator for this important topic," said Jon M. Deutsch, TDWI NY Chapter president and senior vice president of RCG Information Technology. "Wayne will be joined by Tony Berman from Pershing LLC and David J. Ramos from LinkShare Corp. who will present their Performance Dashboard solutions, implementation, challenges, and business results."

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
