Businesses change. There are many reasons for this: industry evolution, competition, economic factors. Business transformation isn’t a new idea, and it’s not a one-off occurrence. It has become a common event—and a continuous event.
Data and analytics have become synonymous with companies detecting and responding to change. Business users want the data and tools to identify, detect, and even predict events, trends, and changes in their businesses. Plus their needs aren’t limited to reports and dashboards. They want more data, they want the details, and they want to be self-sufficient.
Data democratization is a paradigm shift for most organizations. We built our data environments to deliver reporting and dashboard capabilities. Although we still have to support (and expand) our analytics capabilities, we must shift to support data sharing and distribution too. So, what has to change to support the world of data democratization?
In this keynote, Evan Levy will offer a glimpse at some of the newest trends in how organizations are supporting their data democratization efforts—enabling their users to be faster, better, and more effective with data.
