Data of the People, By the People, and For the People: The 2019 Rapid Insight User Conference

As things like automation and machine learning and AI become more prevalent, it’s easier to forget that even the most innovative solutions still require people. People who steer these tools toward organizational change. People (e.g. customers, colleagues) who reap the benefits of innovation.

At Rapid Insight, we set ourselves a yearly reminder of the people-centered impact that our Veera data analytics platform has on institutions and enterprises. That reminder: our annual Rapid Insight User Conference.

For a few days in June, in beautiful Conway, New Hampshire, we brought together new, experienced, and prospective Veera users, and through a series of presentations, panels, and meetups, we exchanged ideas and shared successes (as well as the many challenges) around data-driven decision-making.

If you didn’t make it to this year’s conference (there’s always next year), or if you did and want to recapture its illuminating content—relax, we’ve got you. Here are the slide presentations that some of our star users came to share:
