TCOR vs. TCOIR: For risk managers, it's a distinction with a difference

Experience 2014: Previewing “Risk Mapping in the Real World” (RCFE303)

At the 2014 Experience Conference in New Orleans, I’m looking forward to leading one of the sessions devoted to making the most of our Intelligent Mapping tool in RiskConsole, the eSolutions risk management information system. I plan to discuss ways that two of our customers, Mosaic  and SavaSeniorCare, use the risk mapping application now and how they plan to use it in the future.

Mark LeVeque of the eSolutions Product team will be leading a hands-on session ("Mapping  Test Drive" RCFE304r ) and a lecture session ("Mapping: The New Generation" RCNF103) focused on Intelligent Mapping. I’m developing this session, “Mapping in the Real World” (RCFE303), to be a useful complement to Mark’s sessions in that we’ll be going in depth into how two customers are using the tool.

The 2014 Experience: 5 reasons to attend Effective Dashboarding (RCBI201)

Joining me this year as a co-presenter is Amanda Jarrell, one of our client delivery managers.

Amanda and I are hard at work developing what we intend to be an enlightening, useful dashboarding session, and we’ve come up with five reasons we think RiskConsole users will want to attend:
