On June 18th-19th 1010data held our 2014 Annual Insight Summit in our hometown of New York City at the classic Roosevelt Hotel just blocks away from our corporate headquarters.
Attendees converged on New York from nearly every region of the United States. The Summit included customers and partners across a range of industries: financial services, retail, consumer packaged goods, government and manufacturing & distribution.
The Summit opened with a networking cocktail hour on the rooftop of the Roosevelt Hotel, followed by a spectacular dinner where analysts, managers, and executives from leading corporations shared ideas and experiences from the world of business analytics and big data discovery.
The next morning, the official workday of the 2014 Summit agenda was kicked off with an exciting “sizzle” video, followed by a keynote address by 1010data CEO and co-founder, Sandy Steier who talked about the definition of insight.

“We have data that tells us that margarine sales are correlated with the divorce rate in Maine… and golf course revenues are correlated with cheese sales. This may be interesting – to some people – but is it insightful? Can we use it?” The key, Sandy went on to say, is to deliver technology and solutions that differentiate between data and analysis that yields insight from data and analysis that doesn’t. That’s what 1010data seeks to do for its customers.
Tom Madison, Chief Customer Officer of Equifax, addressed the entire audience in an engaging talk about how to leverage Big Data to truly understand your customer so you can offer meaningful products and services tailored directly to your customers’ needs.
