Join us to learn how to take advantage of the power of IBM Cognos Analytics and Watson Analytics to analyze real world healthcare data to explore and to discover new insights.

We’ll look at how to analyze your data, to find some key insights and to build a great looking dashboard in just a few clicks. You will also learn how to get up and running with IBM Cognos Analytics and Watson Analytics, and to get real insights from your data.

This year, we are encouraging participants to practice pitching their healthcare problems in advance of the Hacking Health Ottawa hackathon during any of our events. Here’s why you need to pitch:

  1. Great opportunity to practice your pitch before the HIP613 hackathon.
  2. Get your problem noticed and attract team members early.
  3. Grab the attention of experts, researchers and mentors who can assist you along your journey.
