Webinar Abstract

Business intelligence (BI) sits at the center of many organizations’ efforts to enable data-driven decisions and actions through their enterprises. But BI is changing, both for organizations just getting started with BI and those that have invested in developing an enterprise standard. We have entered the age of BI “democratization”: tools and applications are becoming easier to use, more visual, and more adaptable to the requirements of a greater variety of users. Across business functions, users are excited by the potential of the new BI and visual analytics technologies and are clamoring for the opportunity to move beyond the limits of spreadsheets and canned reporting. However, a balance must be struck because no organization wants BI democratization to devolve into BI chaos.

Join this TDWI Webinar to learn about key trends shaping the future of BI. The Webinar will focus on how organizations can capitalize on these trends to break open the potential of their growing data assets and enable more types of users to engage in informed, data-driven decision making. It will discuss how organizations need to shift from monolithic enterprise BI reporting to a more flexible architecture that allows for more user freedom and personalization of their BI experiences.

In this Webinar, you will learn:

  • New technology directions that are making BI user experiences easier and more intuitive
  • How data visualization is changing the way that users collaborate on data and use BI to make decisions
  • The role of IT for guiding and governing BI democratization so that the organization balances freedom and stability
  • The cloud’s emerging role as an option for meeting fast-changing business demands for BI
