TDWI Keynote: State of the Market Perspective

Presentation by David Stodder, Sr. Director of Research for Business Intelligence at TDWI

To compete in the modern age, what happens with data cannot be an afterthought. Without a solid data strategy, business objectives for improving performance, reducing costs, and commanding bigger and better market share are nearly impossible to achieve. Companies today compete on analytics – and analytics are nothing without the data. They need to take advantage of new data assets for strategic, tactical, and operational scenarios. Yet, in many organizations how data is collected, integrated, managed, accessed, and governed consists of a hodgepodge of organizational processes and platforms: old and new, on premises and in the cloud, distributed and centralized, self-service and IT-managed.

This TDWI keynote will focus on how organizations can choose a data strategy that aligns with its business priorities, objectives, and desired outcomes. Gone are the days when IT set up data management and configured data platforms for one-size-fits-all business intelligence (BI). Now, users expect an agile data strategy that can change shape, scaling elastically to fit dynamic business needs. We will talk about how organizations can get from where they are now to where they need to be.

Topics TDWI will discuss include:

  • Hot trends in data strategy, including cloud, data catalogs, and hybrid data architecture
  • People, process, and organizational priorities in setting up your data strategy
  • Recommendations for how to modernize key platforms such as the data warehouse
  • What to do about data governance for meeting regulatory responsibilities
  • How you can support democratized, self-service analytics for data-driven decision-making
  • Future-proofing data strategies for AI, IoT, mobility, automation, and more
