We’re buried in data and everyone’s discussing the power of analytics, the single version of the truth, and self-service. Unfortunately, your current approach is to react to the latest challenge, problem, or surprise. You need a plan—and you need to learn how to build one quickly.

Our analytics environment is a collection of data, tools, and technologies. We’ve not enabled business analysis; we’re training everyone to become a data developer. We need an environment that has a cohesive plan that delivers easy-to-find data, enables self-service, aligns with the company’s strategy, and supports the individual’s responsibilities.

In this session, Evan Levy will review the phases of developing an analytics/DW roadmap and the tactical activities of planning, scoping, and organizing analytics and data initiatives. We’ll discuss the different audiences, the approach of scoping and identifying needs, and even provide a framework for capturing and managing these details. We’ll also talk about the organizational changes required to support self-service and other user-centric data initiatives.
