Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Billy Beane has molded the Oakland Athletics into one of professional baseball's most consistent winners since taking over as General Manager following the 1997 season. Mr. Beane shattered traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated wins by implementing a data analytics methodology that led the Oakland A's to six American League West Division Titles. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the "Moneyball" philosophy, named for the best-selling book and Oscar-nominated film chronicling Mr. Beane's journey from General Manager to hero to celebrated management genius. Mr. Beane is a two-time Major League Baseball Executive of the Year.
"I'm really excited to attend MicroStrategy World 2018 to discuss how the Moneyball philosophy can be applied to any organization. Analytics has the power to turn everyone, not just the data scientists, into data-driven decision makers," said Mr. Beane.
"MicroStrategy is thrilled to welcome Billy Beane to MicroStrategy World 2018, one of the year's most anticipated events for data analytics," said Mark Gambill, CMO, MicroStrategy Incorporated. "We serve a wide array of customers and strategic partners across industries and around the globe. Billy's amazing story, implementing a culture of analytics within the Oakland Athletics' organization, transcends sports and can help our attendees consider how they too can challenge the status quo and transform their big data into valuable insights to drive business success."
