In 2022, many business intelligence conferences returned to in-person events. While some events slated for 2023 are still virtual, this year's top business intelligence events have something in common from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Barcelona, Spain, Dubai, UAE, and cities from Miami to San Diego in the United States: every data summit offers data analysts, entrepreneurs, and BI professionals with trending information from exhibitors and industry experts, plus collaboration and networking opportunities with professionals and others in the field.

Some great strides forward in business intelligence last year included:

  • More decision-makers began using BI insights as actionable information.

  • AI and machine learning (ML) grew both in ability and in acceptance.

  • Decision-makers evaluated using external data to supplement internal data to assist in the decision-making process.

  • Real-time decision-making capabilities were bolstered by the strides made in AI & ML.

2023 already shows great promise, as you'll see in the BI in-person conferences and virtual events highlighted below.

On tap for discussions include top business intelligence challenges facing industries, such as data governance, data silos, and managing self-service BI tools, as well as the latest trends and ways leaders are approaching business intelligence in general for 2023, such as:

  • Supporting decision-making by fostering improved data literacy.

  • Using improved frameworks to manage data quality.

  • Enhancing fraud prevention tactics with predictive analytics.

  • Embracing cloud services.

  • Embracing and putting mobile BI to good use.

In the coming years, companies will look for ways to simplify their use of business intelligence and analytics tools. The coming technology evolution will empower professionals to make better sense of data and help drive daily operations.

With the ability to uncover valuable data-driven insights, cutting-edge approaches like digital transformation and others that experts plan to present at this year’s data science conferences have the potential to boost growth across all sectors. One key factor in this evolution will be the increasing use of AI-powered business intelligence, which will allow experts to make more informed decisions and plan for substantial expansion.
