SILICON SLOPES, Utah — September 25, 2018 — ObservePoint is honored to announce that Chris Andres, VP of Global Customer Success at Tealium, will be presenting leading two breakout sessions at ObservePoint’s Validate conference on October 2-5th 2018.

Validate is a one-of-a-kind analytics event where digital analysts gather together to learn from industry leaders, world-class brands, product evangelists and each other. Sessions focus on technical problem-solving with interactive product deep-dives, roundtable discussions and hands-on lab sessions led by solution experts. The agenda also includes live entertainment, local dining experiences and revitalizing recreational activities in the world-famous Park City, Utah.

During Andres’ first session titled, “It’s Not You, It’s Your Data—The Impact of Data Readiness on ML/AI,” he will discuss how the field of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not new, yet organizations are still discovering brand new ways to apply ML methods in their complex and expanding data sets. He will continue by showing that the demand for data science talent is growing while the problems of collecting clean and meaningful data for machine learning are snowballing faster than most organizations can keep up with. Andres will summarize his discussion by teaching why organizations need to take full advantage of the avalanche of artificial intelligence functionality and why it’s critical that they first implement a data foundation that’s ready for the task.

Andres will also be leading a breakout session titled, “What is Future-Ready Data?” In this session, he will focus on tangible ways to get your customer data ready for tomorrow and beyond by discussing:

  • Where most organization’s data integration maturity stacks up
  • How to think about data-first and customer-first design
  • The overlap between marketing, customer experience, and privacy compliance
  • Steps to realign your customer data strategy to embrace change

Andres is a business and marketing strategy leader. He has over a decade of experience spanning over a wide variety of functional areas including customer support operations, software development, analytics, project management and the various aspects of digital marketing. Prior to becoming VP of Global Customer Success at Tealium, he was the founder and CEO of Upbuilt LLC, a company that specialized in game development, content syndication and managed to garner over a million daily active users.
