Governance in the Age of Data Discovery: Delivering Trust and Transparency at Business Speed
March 1, 2017
The pace of the modern business world has increased significantly, and traditional business intelligence (BI) platforms have failed to keep up with evolving analytical requirements. Business users demanding speed and autonomy have adopted desktop-based discovery and visualization products, circumventing corporate BI standards for tools and data.
Unfortunately, while these products deliver speed and ease of use, they lead to the proliferation of analytical silos and decision making based on unreliable data. Business users, believing they must choose between agility and governance, seem resigned to accept that self-service comes at the cost of imperfect data. However, leading companies know that there is a powerful and direct correlation between business success and having a trusted view of enterprise data.
This white paper describes how companies evaluating BI solutions must look for modern architectures that support transparent governance at business speed and deliver a unified view of data without sacrificing end-user autonomy. By implementing transparent governance, organizations can enable local execution with global consistency and reconcile agility with trust at enterprise scale.
