BI and Analytics Organizations that Work: Resolving the Conflicts of Centralization and Self-Service

Duration: One Day Course

Prerequisite: None

Course Outline

Do your BI and analytics stakeholders experience territorial disputes? Do you work in the business and wonder why IT controls seem like roadblocks to data access and barriers to business analysis? Do you work in IT and have concerns about ungoverned data, non-repeatable processes, and untraceable reporting? What about the vendors who bypass IT and sell their products directly into lines of business—is that a good thing or a bad thing? Questions of this kind challenge virtually every modern BI and analytics organization. There is no one-size-fits-all right answer. But there is a best answer for you and your organization—or maybe even a few great options. We’ll explore the variables that help to determine the right mix of central services, shared services, and self-service to achieve the best fit for your organization’s culture, needs, and data management practices.
