Natural language processing is changing the face of BI and Analytics

Watch the On-Demand Webinar Replay Now!

Natural language processing, including natural language queries and natural language generation, change the way users can interact with data and information. For decades BI and analytics meant tables of numbers supplemented with charts and graphs. More recently, interactive visualizations became the rage. While these presentation formats may work for analysts, there are many others in the enterprise for whom they do not, and would not know what to do with the analytic outputs even if they could get them. Advances in natural language processing can extend the reach of BI and analytics, making the insights available to a much broader group of users. Is your organization ready to take advantage of this new opportunity?

Vice President Dave Menninger, Ventana Research’s analytics practice leader, guides line-of-business managers and BI professionals through the following topics:

  • What natural language analytic capabilities are available today?
  • How do you incorporate natural language into your BI and analytics?
  • What frameworks are available to guide your organization in prioritizing capabilities?
  • How can you use natural language processing to reach additional audiences in your organization?
  • What five key insights will ensure success with natural language processing?
