The idea of a data strategy isn't new; this executive program is focused on the importance of positioning your data strategy to support your company’s business and analytics needs. Strategy—whether business or data—isn't a cookie-cutter solution that can be applied in the same manner across any company. A data strategy is a plan designed to improve all the ways you acquire, store, manage, share, and use data. Companies have different (and evolving) application systems, business processes, data management strengths and challenges, and business priorities. These are but a few of the reasons that data strategy initiatives differ among individual companies.
TDWI's Data Strategy Assessment tool can help participants identify their individual company's data strengths, needs, and challenges. The assessment focused on five key component areas as a framework to identify the various needs and challenges to position within a data strategy initiative.
The collected responses to the assessment provide insight into emerging data strategy trends and best practices. This presentation will examine the data findings,along with details about the participant audience, and discuss some possible next steps.
