Today’s organizations are collecting high volumes of diverse and dynamic data to use for modern analytics, ostensibly for use cases such as self-service BI and machine learning. Yet they are struggling to derive insights from this data and put it to use. This is the “information gap”—the inability to turn data into insights, information, and knowledge to gain a competitive advantage. There are numerous reasons for this gap, including not finding the right data to analyze, not understanding the data, not trusting the data, not packaging the data for ease of use, and lacking the skills to analyze the data. These issues continue to be problems, even in newer environments such as the cloud.

Does the information gap sound familiar? Sign up to attend this free Virtual Solution Spotlight. Attendees will learn how to spot information gaps and what to do about them. Hear from Fern Halper, Ph.D., VP and senior director of research for advanced analytics at TDWI, plus expert speakers from Matillion.

    Overcoming Factors that Hamper Analytics Productivity

    Organizations are looking to modernize their data infrastructure for numerous reasons, but the top reason we see at TDWI is to support modern analytics, such as self-service BI and machine learning. Often, organizations are moving to cloud platforms as part of this modernization effort. However, the cloud doesn’t necessarily solve challenges such as data findability, data governance, or putting advanced analytics to work. In fact, in some cases, it can cause more complexity.

    In this presentation, Fern Halper, Ph.D., VP and senior director of research for advanced analytics at TDWI, will discuss some key data and analytics challenges organizations are facing as they try to derive insight from data and how to overcome them. Solutions include both technology and the organization's best practices.
