Cloud BI: Demystifying the Issues

TDWI Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI Research Director

Date: Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Abstract

Cloud BI has been positioned as the next evolution in business intelligence because of the advantages it provides in terms of flexibility and elasticity. However, there is still confusion in the market around moving to a cloud model, and cloud BI adoption has been slow, although interest seems to be increasing. For instance, in a recent TDWI survey, a majority of respondents were either already using the cloud or were considering it for BI and analytics. Companies that were using the cloud for analytics were using some combination of public, private, and hybrid implementations. Organizations are still sorting through issues surrounding cloud BI, such as security, data movement and storage, data governance and control, and licensing models.

This one‐hour Webinar, which includes a panel discussion with MicroStrategy and GoodData moderated by Fern Halper, will address some of the perceived issues with cloud BI.  The discussion of these issues can assist users who are currently evaluating cloud BI solutions.

You will learn:

  • How to approach moving data in the cloud 
  • What to look for in terms of security and privacy from cloud BI vendors 
  • How to address governance in cloud BI
  • Evaluating cost
  • And more
