TAG Business Intelligence and Analytics is Now TAG Data Science & Analytics


ATLANTA, GA– May 18, 2016– The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced TAG Business Intelligence and Analytics is now TAG Data Science & Analytics.

Significant terminology evolution has taken place since the early days of “Big Data”.  Data and related analytics are at the core of both Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Science (DS).  However, BI tends to be rearward looking and reporting on “what happened” vice the “predictive and future” orientation of DS.   Date Scientists are expected to be proactive and have advanced math/statistical ability to interpret data with a focus towards realizing causation.  After a full year of board consideration, we decided that adopting the lexicon and posture of “Data Science & Analytics” was inevitable.

Our focus is fundamentally data and what you do with it – biased towards the future.  We strive to include the entire “data continuum” from unstructured data through structured data, pattern recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence.  The rapid change drivers of IoT, extensively networked sensors and discoverable data drive our society towards this evolved industry focus.

Additional Data Topics includes:

  • Big Data
  • Data Science
  • Internet Of Things
  • Business and Predictive Analytics
  • Machine Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Storytelling through data
  • Data Visualization
