The Briefing Room with Colin White and Composite Software
Live Webcast Feb. 26, 2013

The modern business analyst needs data from all over the place: yes, the data warehouse, but also the Web, big data, production systems, as well as via partners and vendors. In fact, the typical analyst spends more than 50% of the time chasing data, which slows delivery of analytic insights and limits the time available for thorough analysis. Some practitioners refer to this conundrum as "the data problem."

Check out the slides from this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Colin White of BI Research as he explains why analytical sandboxes and data hubs can be an analyst's best friend. He'll be briefed by Bob Eve of Composite Software who will discuss his company's mature data virtualization platform, which includes a number of capabilities that help organizations leverage agile analytics. He will discuss why time-to-insight is fast becoming the battle cry of analysis-driven organizations.
