Foodservice Analytics: Learn How to Do It Right at MURTEC 2017

After restaurant operators have identified the problems they want to analyze, developed a data strategy and aligned their organization for data-driven decision making, the next step is to generate insights. But with a dizzying amount of technologies and approaches, it can be a daunting task to find the right tool for the job.
To help restaurant operators with this task, Oliver Vagner, senior director of data analytics and guest experience at TGI Fridays will present a session titled: "Right Tool for the Right Job: A Survey of Tools and Methodologies for Analytics in Food Service" at #MURTEC. During this session, Vagner will offer attendees a broad overview of the current analytics ecosystem and will discuss various analytical approaches, including statistics, machine learning and visualization. He will also help attendees understand how to match these technologies and approaches to common use cases within the food service space.
