Today’s business and analytics users place high value on timeliness. Reaching decisions quickly—at the speed of thought—depends on two factors: the response speed of the data exploration tooling and the delivery speed of data into the exploration environment. Modern tools deliver these features through in-memory operation on locally stored data and direct access to operational data, respectively. The result is faster turnaround time of decisions based on more timely information.
In the past, such speed has often been delivered at the expense of data consistency through data marts, while enterprise data warehouse efforts emphasized information quality and completeness as a prerequisite to BI. The reality today is that both speed and consistency are mandatory for business success.
In this Webinar, Dr. Barry Devlin discusses the agile tools and techniques that enable speedier BI decision making, and some tips for delivering faster analytics and better BI.
