CCG to speak at IBM World Watson

Aug 31, 2016


Convergence Consulting Group is thrilled to announce that our very own Ken Rickard, Senior Analytics Consultant will be speaking at IBM World of Watson 2016. With over 14,000 elite thought leaders, developers, and business leaders expected in attendance, World of Watson is slated to be one of the largest analytics conferences of 2016. Ken Rickard will be speaking on the use of gamification to increase adoption of BI systems within an organization. His presentation will feature IBM’s newly released Cognos Analytics, which CCG was one of the first to successfully deploy utilizing gamification strategies.

This is the third time CCG has accepted the invitation to speak at IBM World of Watson, formally called IBM Insight. The past two years, CCG showcased three distinguished case studies in connection with long-term client partner Hillsborough County Public Schools, a cutting edge school district that has leveraged IBM technology for leadership development and student success programs with CCG’s help.
