Opti Award Categories


Are your analytics prescriptive, descriptive, predictive, cognitive or even diagnostic? How have you combined brainpower, manpower, methodologies, the science of numbers, data and discovery to work in unlocking answers?  Are you able to ask questions on-demand that you never thought of previously and present answers to executives in more meaningful ways? 

Cloud Revolution

Did a team, department, or business unit decision or even a corporate mandate prompt you to embrace the cloud or hybrid cloud? How has focusing on analytics rather than infrastructure driven innovation or enabled new business models? How has as-a-service consumption developed new skill sets that drove insights to excel the business? Were you able to harness the cloud to incorporate new data types and sources to develop new analytics to meet market needs?


Whether you have customers, patients, members or constituents, how did you identify, reinvent and optimize their journey and experience with you? How did you bridge the divide between insight and outcome and between understanding and meeting their or your needs?


Are you on the leading edge of innovation? Did you fail fast and excel even faster? Have you created a new market or product? Challenged the industry? Undergone a digital transformation?  How did your investment impact your return on innovation? Did you capitalize on AI? IoT? Or a really cool mixture of analytic techniques and new data sources?
