Today’s business and analytic users place high value on timeliness. Reaching decisions quickly--at the speed of thought--depends on two factors: the response speed of the data exploration tooling and the delivery speed of data into the exploration environment. Modern tools deliver these features through in-memory operation on locally stored data and direct access to operational data respectively. The result is faster turn-around time of decisions based on more timely information.
In the past, such speed has often been delivered at the expense of data consistency through data marts, while enterprise data warehouse efforts emphasized information quality and completeness as a prerequisite to BI. The reality today is that both speed and consistency are mandatory for business success.
In this webinar, Dr. Barry Devlin discusses the agile tools and techniques that together enable speedier BI decision making, based on consistent information, and offers some tips for delivering faster analytics and better BI.
