Palisade will be at the Biggerplate mind mapping conference in NYC this week

BigPicture at Biggerplate 2016Biggerplate.com is THE community for mind mappers, and the home of mind mapping content and learning resources regarding mind maps. Biggerplate hosts a range of meetings, workshops and the annual Biggerplate Unplugged Conference which is tomorrow at Civic Hall in New York City. This is the only conference in the world dedicated entirely to mind mapping! Tomorrow’s speakers include authors, tech leaders, professors, medical professionals and more. The primary focus for this year’s conference is how mind mapping software, such as BigPicture, is the missing link and the must have tool for knowledge workers in business and education.

Even though mind mapping is only ONE of the MANY features that Palisade’s BigPicture provides, it is one that can be an incredible addition to what you may already be doing with Palisade’s other DecisionTools Suite products in Excel. Mind mapping in BigPicture can help streamline your processes and improve efficiency in your daily projects.

We’ll report back on the latest insights into mind mapping and data mapping, and how you can use these techniques in BigPicture!

Free Live Webcast on Modeling for Natural Resources

Tune in December 11, 2014  at 11:00 AM EST

Kurt Rinehart, consultant, and Francisco J. Zagmutt, managing partner, both at EpiX Analytics, present a demonstration in which they discuss several case studies from their client work where  they had to strike a balance between model realism and structural simplicity when doing models for mining and oil and gas:

“Applied and Efficient Modeling in Natural Resources: Case Studies of Mining and Oil and Gas

Rinehart and Zagmutt write, “Good model design allows translating the essential needs of the decision-maker into an efficient and effective tool. The design of the model will determine the time required building it and running it, but also how data-intensive the model will be. Model design also has implications for risk management and decision making.”

Free Live Webcast on Futures Portfolios, THIS Thursday

This Thursday, October 16th, 2014 at 11:00 am EDT

 Vladimir Antikarov, Principal at Verea Group LLC. discusses how to use @RISK and The DecisionTools Suite in the Oil and Gas industry:

“Pricing and Managing the Liquidity Requirements of the Futures Portfolio for a Gas Distributor”

The presentation will describe a customizable application, using @RISK simulations, that allows a gas distributor to a priori assess the expected liquidity requirements for each contract and its cost, and to properly price it into the contract. The application allows a gas distributor to correctly assess and update the aggregated liquidity requirements of the whole futures portfolio and to plan accordingly. The application can be further used to analyze and optimize the hedging strategy of the gas distributor.
