Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) April 18, 2017
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a webinar titled “Avoid Failure in Self-Service Analytics: Strategies to Ensure Success with Your Data,” featuring John L. Myers, managing research director of business intelligence and data warehousing at EMA, and Heine Krog Iversen, founder and CEO at TimeXtender.
The reason that many self-service analytics and business intelligence initiatives fail can be summed up in one concept – the lack of trustworthy data. Variations in isolated desktop visualization implementations can lead to data inconsistencies. As a result, what one business analyst reports with his or her ungoverned visualizations is different from, or may be contradictory to, what someone else displays.
It does not have to be this way, however. Many problems can be solved through the use of data governance techniques and automation.
During this webinar, Myers and Krog Iversen will reveal strategies and techniques that will encourage the creativity and analytical curiosity of the self-service community and ensure the information that these organizations use is consistent and trustworthy.
Webinar attendees will also learn:
- How self-service analytics efforts fail
- How the chief data officer (CDO), data steward and data architect can move proactively to prevent those failure
- How self-service power users can accelerate their analysis without involving IT
- Best practices on how to avoid self-service pitfalls
- How the correct architecture contributes to self-service success
- How data warehouse automation fuels a successful architecture
The webinar is Thursday, April 27 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/avoid-failure-in-self-servicea-analytics-webinar-pr.html
