On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, in San Francisco, Microsoft hosted an event, Accelerate Your Insights, inviting Jake Ladouceur, KTPO Managing Director to present. The event was live-streamed from the event in San Francisco.
Jake presented on how KUKA and Microsoft’s partnership provides connectivity to shop floor and helps to run a world class operation, producing the iconic vehicle, Jeep Wrangler®.
“Accelerate Your Insights,” is an event where Microsoft help organizations understand the real value of their data and about how building a data culture in a company is critical to success. By combining data-driven DNA with the right analytics tools, which Microsoft supply, anyone can transform data into action.
The event featured Microsoft executives, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, COO Kevin Turner, and Data Platform Group CVP Quentin Clark and industry-leading data products to showcase what customers are doing with Microsoft products.
The event was attended by approximately 300 select executives, across retail, manufacturing, health and other industries.
