The heat is on: Organizations today want decision-makers at every level to use data with confidence to develop strategies, direct operations, engage with customers, and discover unexpected insights. Yet, the journey from concept to delivery of data insights can be painfully slow. All the cycles that organizations traditionally have to go through to create business intelligence, analytics, data warehousing, and big data systems leave organizations waiting too long for the insights they need now. What can be done to reduce time to value? Are there better ways for both business and IT to make it happen?
Fortunately, innovative practices and technologies are maturing to help decision-makersmove faster to uncover data insights and apply them to business decisions. On the technology side, there’s cloud computing, self-service BI and data preparation, easier-to-use visual analytics, and smart automation for data management. Organizations can integrate and blend new types of data together. These technologies are coming together with agile development methods to empower users to be productive withdata sooner.
But, there’s no silver bullet. It’s still not easy to keep BI, analytics, and data warehousing rolling and in sync with business objectives, even as those objectives change due to shifts in markets, leadership, budgets, and more.
