Self-Service Analytics – IT Enabled, Business Driven Solutions

Self-Service Analytics – IT Enabled, Business Driven Solutions
Join us for a round table discussion and learn how your peers are working to balance rapid business discovery with traditional IT-centric delivery.  As more and more companies adopt self-service data blending and BI tools, there is an increasing need to integrate this business driven development approach with traditional IT-centric data management practices.  There is a place for both, and in this meeting we will discuss how local companies are working to strike the balance.

Who should attend:
·         Organizations utilizing (or that plan to utilize) tools like Tableau, QlikView, SAS, SAP Lumira, PowerBI, Spotfire, Alteryx, Datawatch, and Datameer
·         IT professionals interested in learning how to integrate and enable the use of self-service analytics
·         Business analysts and data scientists that want to explore ways to accelerate the time from data to decisions
·         Data & Analytics leaders that are building a business case for adopting modern self-service analytics tools
