Striking the Balance Between Business and IT: Best Practices for Success in Self-Service BI

Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics

Date: Thursday, March 26, 2020

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

“Data-driven” entered the mainstream lexicon nearly two decades ago, yet organizations are still struggling to fully achieve this goal. Self-service BI solutions were thought to be the remedy, but they have come with their own set of issues. Organizations are struggling with access to trusted and fresh data, the creation of new data silos, and data literacy. TDWI research indicates that the overwhelming majority of organizations still believe it is important to increase users’ self-reliance with BI, search, data exploration, and analytics and reduce their dependence on IT.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how to strike a balance between maintaining control over data and granting domain experts across the organization the freedom to explore and analyze data directly, empowering them to leverage their knowledge and experience to uncover previously hidden insights. We will explore how this approach works in the real world and discuss best practices to help the data team and BI analysts break the ad hoc reporting bottleneck, free up time to focus on higher-value projects, and enable insights-driven decision making throughout the organization.

You will learn:

  • What is working with self-service and what is not working
  • Organizational and technology best practices for building a culture of self-service analytics
  • New tools and technologies that can help
