Strategies for Migrating to a Managed BI Environment: Reining In Renegade Spreadmarts and Data Marts

Webinar Abstract
One of the most insidious problems in data warehousing is the proliferation of renegade spreadmarts and data marts. These data shadow systems undermine information consistency, crippling the business and escalating costs thanks to redundant data, platforms, and staffing. TDWI research shows that the average business analyst spends two days a week collecting and formatting data, something that IT professionals are trained and paid to do. This Webinar will explain various strategies for reining in these renegade systems while liberating business analysts to do what they do best: analyze data, create plans, and deliver deep insights.

You will learn:

  • The organizational dynamics that drive data shadow systems
  • How to overcome the distrust between IT and analysts that fuels information inconsistency
  • The five Cs for controlling the proliferation of spreadmarts
  • Architectural strategies for consolidating departmental data marts
