eSage Group’s Seattle Marketing Analytics Group is excited to host presenters Tim Ragland, VP of Analytics and Dr. Olly Downs, VP of Machine Learning & Data Science at Zulily.

Join us on 2/18 in Belltown at Zulily’s HQ to hear Tim and Olly present “Business Analytics Vs. Data Science? Convergence Required!”

Zulily leaders will cover how Business Analytics, Data Engineering and Data Science will converge, build on each other and collaborate in the job market of the future and how analysts and statisticians of today can evolve their skills to get there. They’ll go into other emerging topics in the industry, changing analytics cultures, and how analytics professionals at every level can get a seat at the table with senior decision makers and the C-Suite.
