The landscape of BI and analytics has changed. Historically, BI leaders have lived in a world where they centrally own and manage the data warehouse, and are responsible for delivering reports to the business. Today there are two distinct worlds, serving different types of users who have different analytical needs. One world provides casual users with reports and dashboards built to answer predefined questions using IT-certified data. The other gives power users unfettered access to any data to answer unanticipated questions using ad-hoc query and analysis tools.
Join Wayne Eckerson, Founder and Principal Consultant at Eckerson Group, and Pedro Arellano, Senior Director of Product Strategy at Birst, as they share their thoughts on this new model for analytics. In this webinar you will:
Understand the specifics about these two environments and learn what BI leaders must do to ensure success
Learn organizational and technical methods to bring these two worlds together as a coherent whole
Hear how Birst’s 2-tier analytics technology enables BI leaders to serve the needs of both types of users
