Are You Putting

Analytics Into Action?

Analytics Innovation Award

BE HONORED FOR YOUR INNOVATIVE USE OF ANALYTICS

Give yourself and your colleagues the chance to be recognized at our Business Analytics Symposium by submitting your application today!

Companies that display the most innovative and effective use of business analytics deserve recognition. That is why one organization will receive our Business Analytics Award at this year’s symposium.

If your organization, or one you know is using strategic analytics to improve operations, nominate them to win our Business Analytics Innovation Award.  Eligible applicants from any private or public company, government agency or nonprofit organization that has implemented an analytics system to enhance organizational decision-making or operations. Applicants may nominate themselves for this award, or their solution vendor may nominate them. If you are a solution vendor, you may only nominate yourself if you are submitting an internal implementation that involves more than your own product. Otherwise, you should be listed as a solution provider.

TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL APPLICATION

Applicants will increase their chances of winning by describing tangible economic, social or environmental impact, especially if expressed in financial returns to the organization.

Applicants will have a minimal chance of winning when they emphasize a sponsor’s product as a key attribute to success.

Answers to the application questions should be succinct, well-constructed, comprehensive and logical, with enough detail to adequately describe the project.

HOW TO APPLY

Email a detailed description and explanation of the business analytics project, process or concept that was implemented (should not exceed 600 words) to sue.hafkemeyer@loras.edu.

Please limit the number of attachments you submit with your application to only those that clearly illustrate or support a major point.
