Governing Self-Service BI and Analytics (Without Killing the Buzz)

February 18, 2021

Prerequisite: None

Donald Farmer

Principal

TreeHive Strategy

In the business intelligence world, new platforms and applications are often described as self-service. Business users are excited to have tools which make analysis and collaboration easier than ever before. IT departments hope that life will be simpler without the large number of requests from users for new dashboards, visualizations, and apps.

However, in practice, life for the IT department can be even busier with self-service BI. Users are no longer demanding reports—they are demanding access to data, with ease of use, high performance, and security. Business analysts have embraced self-service business intelligence “with or without IT’s permission,” as analysts have noted. What can IT do now, in the age of self-service, to manage this rapidly changing environment and to curate critical data? What can business users do to work more effectively with IT?

Donald Farmer will lay out a flexible but effective model of governance and compliance specifically tailored to the needs of organizations enabling self-service analytics, data cataloging, and cloud data warehousing.
