Usage rates for BI tools have nudged up from 18 percent three years ago to 24 percent today, according to TDWI Research. This abysmally low percentage accounts for most of an organization’s power users and a handful of very determined non-technical users. What can you do to make BI easier and therefore more pervasive and relevant in your organization? Given the pervasiveness of enterprise search and its ease-of-use, many wonder if search offers a revolutionary new approach to end-user data access. Some believe that search, with its familiar and simple keyword interface, is the next generation ad hoc query tool. Others see a role for search in helping guide users to relevant information within reports and data repositories and integrating diverse data sets on the fly without need for traditional data integration. This Webinar will examine the core technologies at play and show how search-driven information access can make BI accessible and acutely relevant to the remaining 80 percent of employees who have yet to become active users.

The last two years have seen an explosion of new database and appliance technologies to accelerate query performance for decision support applications. These new technologies promise to open up new possibilities for the kinds of applications and ad hoc access that BI teams can offer to their most data-hungry users. This session will examine the playing field for new query acceleration technologies—including appliances, columnar databases, high-performance clusters, and in-memory analytics to name a few—and outline how they enable organizations to move beyond general reporting to true, interactive analytics.

Now that major applications vendors have acquired the leading BI players, it's time to reassess the validity of packaged analytic applications. When a single vendor manages both operational and analytical processes, there are many opportunities to tighten integration between the two and accelerate the deployment of analytical capabilities. Applications vendors can embed BI into core operational applications and, conversely, use analytics to update operational systems. This Webinar will examine the past, present, and future of packaged analytic applications and help you evaluate when it makes sense to buy an analytic solution in today's consolidated world of enterprise software – and when it makes more sense to build one.

BI tools have changed dramatically in recent years as users demand easier ways to get to their data and share insights. While power users have been the initial adopters of BI tools, new capabilities that emphasize ease of use are appealing to new classes of users. Business users want the simplicity of the Google interface (think “Top 10 Customer Sales”) to build a new query or to find a report amid potentially thousands. The convergence of business intelligence with enterprise search is a new concept that makes this simplicity possible. This webinar covers the concepts and provides a demonstration of how one vendor is delivering the capabilities.

For the last 3 decades we have seen an intensive growth of technologies that enable businesses to make meaningful decisions based on performance. Data warehousing and Business Intelligence have become an indispensable part of this process with most organizations. We have also seen a steady integration of data in the data warehouse from CRM, ERP, SCM and other systems to gain more insight into the business workflow. Along with all of these pieces of information, we now see the need to bring in Unstructured data into the data warehouse.

Most of the burden for ensuring the success of governance falls on business users of information. They must learn to be stewards, owners, and change agents while still accomplishing their day-to-day responsibilities. Many information management and governance initiatives originate in business areas, but the mechanics and realities of “post governance design” need to be fully understood before real change occurs. A solid business case, on going measures, and a change management based sustaining strategy is called for. This presentation will cover the basic concepts and steps for business participants to understand how to make governance a successful business project.
