How IT can lead through change with data

Learn how IT can lead through change with data to help the business adapt to new realities, with more information in our free, on-demand Virtual IT Summit.

Organizations need IT more than ever to enable agility, trust, and transformation

As IT leaders and professionals, you are instrumental in empowering change during these unprecedented times—from supporting a more distributed workforce, to moving things to the cloud, to providing better access to data to inform critical decision-making. Whether your organization is focused on reopening or completely reimagining its business, the agility you enable is more important than ever.

As organizations around the world adapt to emerge more digital and data-driven than ever before, it’s never been so important to have timely, detailed, and trustworthy information to answer critical questions. Data is not only helping us see and understand the complexities of our current situation, but the impact of our actions as we adjust to a new normal.

Digital transformation is no longer a nice-to-have, but a necessity. At the center of every transformation is data. And IT plays a leading role in helping those people with the right business context to ask and answer the right questions, and share their analysis and insights across the company.

But how can we confidently identify the information most needed in the moment? How, with everything changing so quickly, can we analyze it with the necessary agility, speed, and flexibility? And even if we can provide the organization with most relevant data, will those accessing it know that it’s reliable, or where it came from?

Explore these themes and more, with our Virtual IT Summit 2020—now available on demand

We brought together Tableau customers, partners, and leaders to discuss the influential role IT has in driving change with data, and how to be successful with your modern analytics platform. During the live broadcast of our Virtual IT Summit 2020, attendees learned best practices for data preparation, management, governance and security, as well as strategic considerations and important practices for agile analytics deployment, stability, and scalability.

And it’s not too late to join the conversation—all of the content is available on demand, including our featured keynote during which Heidi Lanford, VP of Enterprise Data & Analytics at Red Hat, spoke with me about how her organization has navigated uncertainty and accelerated transformational change with analytics. Our product team also showed a demo of our platform capabilities that can help you balance governance and agility to create more trust in your data.

We’re really excited about the initial responses from attendees about the value they got from the Summit. Some of the highest-rated sessions included:
