How IT Leads the New Era of User-Driven Business Intelligence

Gone are the days of reporting departments. This new wave of user-driven practices are built on a foundation where IT departments are responsible for securing and managing data, and business teams are responsible for analysis of their own department’s data.

Forrester surveys* find that only a small percentage of organizations' data is converted to useful information, so this newly kindled partnership between IT and business teams within the enterprise is more powerful than ever. This fundamental shift in work methodology puts information directly in the hands of business leaders who know what questions to ask, how to interpret the results, and even what follow-up questions to explore. The best analytical insights come from user-generated dashboards running on top of IT-managed infrastructure.

Join this 60 minute webinar with, guest speaker, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., Boris Evelson, sharing insights into successful user driven business intelligence deployments. Also, hear from Ginger Victor of VMware about how they drove a paradigm shift toward a business-enabled—yet enterprise-managed—analytics ecosystem.

You'll learn about:

  • Enterprise data governance strategies
  • Centralizing information consumption
  • How to leverage expertise from across your company
  • Delivering powerful visualizations and new insights that excite executive leadership
