Collecting data is a good start, but it's more important to use that data to create a competitive advantage, said Thomas H. Davenport, a professor and author of Competing on Analytics: The Science of Winning, to a record-breaking crowd during the opening keynote of the 10th Anniversary HR Technology Conference and Exposition® on Tuesday at the Navy Pier in Chicago.

It's about "how do I get to the more sophisticated models and optimization [of the workforce] ... ," he said. "I think we will see [the use of analytics for a competitive advantage] in the future in HR to a very large degree. ... The path is pretty clear."

About 2,200 attendees and more than 225 exhibiting companies were registered for the three-day conference, which has seen attendance double in the last three years, said Bill Kutik, co-chairman of the conference and the technology columnist for Human Resource Executive® magazine.
