Using Scenario Analysis to Predict the Future of the Semantic Web

The Semantic Web is a set of technologies that will change the Internet and Web as we know them. Scenario analysis is an established method for strategic planning in uncertain situations. In this session, we'll develop four distinct scenarios for the future of the Semantic Web. We'll apply proven methods and identify the developments and milestones that will tell us which of our scenarios are most likely to come to pass. From these scenarios we'll predict the implications of the Semantic Web for news media, social networking, location-based services, search and telecommunications. This session will be a must-attend for anyone who is interested in the Semantic Web or who represents an industry likely to be disrupted by this emerging technology.

Favorite CI Analytic Tools that Deliver Value

Your senior VP of Marketing comes to you with a request for information on your top three competitors’ products, services and marketing plans.  You are able to collect a significant amount of information, but how do you organize the data and make sense of it all? This discussion will highlight a few analytical tools and techniques that information professionals can use to gain additional insights from the information they have collected.  Using real-life case studies, the presenters will demonstrate tools that can provide decision makers with a keener understanding of your industry, markets, competitors and future business environment.  The presenters will provide “analytical templates” that can be used to organize, evaluate and assess the information, and provide guidance to the attendees on when and how to apply the techniques.
