Best of TDWI, Volume 13

February 19, 2016

Looking Back to Look Forward

As surely as groundhogs predict the weather, February means it’s time for another issue of Best of TDWI: Top Stories and What’s Ahead, our annual compilation of some of TDWI’s best-received and most relevant articles, research, and information about all things data.

The past year saw BI take a step out of IT’s shadow and into the hands of business users with the progress of self-service data prep and engineering. That progress didn’t come without concerns, though, as conversations about good data governance and security in the age of IoT became more prominent.

TDWI is committed to helping data professionals get smarter with information that is educational, enlightening, and immediately applicable. We hope you enjoy this year’s issue of the Best of TDWI.

Here’s what you’ll find inside:

  • TDWI Best Practices Reports covering expanded visual analytics and where we stand with next-generation analytics tools
  • TDWI Checklist Reports that teach best practices for delivering actionable customer intelligence and bringing data-driven applications to the enterprise
  • BI This Week articles debunking the BI industry's biggest myth, as well as doing a little expectation-setting for Hadoop implementations

and excerpts from our exclusive Premium Member publications:

  • Business Intelligence Journal featuring creative use of social media methods for delivering BI
  • TDWI Flashpoint explorations of agile and streaming analytics
  • Ten Mistakes to Avoid when developing a master data management program
