Periscope Data at Gartner’s Data & Analytics Summit 2019
It’s that time of year again. We’re getting ready to head to Orlando for the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, March 18-21. It’s a great chance for us to meet with some of the brightest data minds in the world and join conversations about the best ways to use data to move businesses forward.
We’re a premier sponsor of this year’s summit, so there are plenty of opportunities to engage with us at the event. At our booth (#229), we’ll be showing off today’s fastest, most powerful, most flexible BI platform, giving out raffle prizes and sharing tips to improve collaboration between teams that make data visualizations and teams that make business decisions. If you’re attending the summit, stop by and introduce yourself. We’d love to say a quick hello or even book a meeting to talk about about how your company can use data to answer new questions and get ahead of your competition.
You can also join speaking sessions with our CEO and CTO to learn more about how data-driven companies are disrupting their industries. Our CEO Harry Glaser’s session provides an overview of how data can be used as a disruptor and gives tips for companies looking for ways to make more data-driven decisions. Our CTO Tom O’Neill will join the leader of Flexport’s data science team to go in depth on how the international shipping giant uses real-time data to adjust to unexpected events and maintain efficiency.

Patrick Steigler, Director, Data Science, Flexport
Flexport helps companies ship goods internationally from over 100 different countries. With operations that span the globe, unforeseen factors such as weather events, strikes and government regulatory changes are a fact of life rather than an exception. Flexport relies on Periscope Data to empower their data scientists with a platform that enables up-to-the-minute analysis on these factors and then drive operational workflows to alert their clients. Recently, the team built a tariff calculator that enables operational users to find and alert any clients impacted by the recent U.S. Federal Government tariff changes. Ultimately, this has enabled Flexport’s clients to have unparalleled control, transparency, and peace of mind over their supply chains.
