Business Intelligence Competency Center: Best Practices to Deliver REAL Business Value
In this webinar, we will discuss how a business intelligence competency center (BICC) can help organizations navigate the changing information landscape to achieve real business value from business intelligence deployments. Today’s organizations are dealing with more data than ever, including heterogeneous data types and sources. Meanwhile, demand for information -- from the executive office to the front-line worker -- is ever-increasing and immediate access to business insight is becoming an operational imperative.
Many organizations are still challenged to apply this data and insight in consistent business processes to generate accurate enterprise business decisions. For organizations that fail to address these challenges, information can become an impediment to business progress. A BICC can help companies align and prioritize BI efforts throughout the organization so that information enables, rather than hinders, business growth. A BICC promotes strategic alignment between business and IT, improves analytic capabilities, drives innovation and culture change and ensures that business and IT processes are optimally constructed and consistently used throughout the enterprise.
What You Will Learn:
- The need for, and business value of, a BICC
- The focus and skills that are needed in a BICC
- Organizational considerations (centralized vs. decentralized)
- 10 mistakes to avoid when building your BICC
