How to Empower Users While Maintaining Standards

The goal of business intelligence is to empower users with information so they can make better decisions. But some users who gather data for decision making create data silos that fracture information consistency, while others get lost in the self-service BI toolsets. So, how can you empower BI users without undermining data standards? How do you implement self-service BI when users are conditioned to ask IT for reports? How do you get functional areas to agree on rules and definitions for key data elements when they all use different tools?

Tune into this webinar to discover the answers as Wayne Eckerson unearths the secrets of BI success. He will be joined by Kevin Sonsky of Citrix Systems, who will explain how a business-driven BI environment changed his organization.
