This is their journey from PI to BI to AI as shared by the CIO of IGIWax, Bill Sandblom. Anyone can do it, but for some reason not many are. Learn how IGI Wax overcame challenges in bringing together the necessary operational and lab data that led first to valuable insights from PowerBI and then to marrying what they had with a top-notch AI platform and team of data scientists. They were able to overcome challenges with the data, as well as taking the organization, including senior management, engineers and operators, down an unfamiliar and to some uncomfortable data-driven path.
