IDEA User Groups (IUGs) are communities of IDEA users, partners and experts who meet to share a common goal of putting data analytics to work. IUGs are primarily led by IDEA users in select cities across the U.S. and virtually to help attendees share best practices, network and build a stronger knowledge base of how and where to use IDEA.
