Revving Your Analytics Engine - Part 1: Analysis and Exploration

Webinar Abstract
What is analytics? What can it do for my company? Who performs analytics? These are some of the questions we’ll address in this Webinar to provide the context for understanding analytical tools, technologies, and processes. We’ll then take a deeper dive into exploratory tools and techniques that organizations are using to better understand and communicate patterns and trends within data and take appropriate business action. These include ad hoc query, OLAP, search, and visual discovery tools as well as evolving BI platforms that incorporate all of these approaches and provide an intuitive pathway from discovery to collaboration to action. The session will also discuss common pitfalls organizations encounter when implementing exploratory analytical tools.

You will learn:

  • How analytics differs from standard reporting
  • Business benefits of analytics

  • Types of exploratory analytical tools
  • Challenges implementing exploratory tools
