    data discovery capabilities means that BI is deployed to more users who leverage data in the way that best suits them and not according to pre defined analytics Being able to trust this data is essential as it is one of the main ways to guarantee information validity and correct results Unfortunately I have worked with several organizations using BI that continue to develop their own analytics yet admit to knowing about inaccuracies in their data In these cases establishing the value of analytics becomes difficult because without trust it becomes impossible to validate analytical outcomes The goal of governed data access to support self service and data discovery applications is to solve data related challenges and support validated data access This access can be within a centralized data warehouse through data virtualization or by accessing approved data sources external to the analytics framework With organizations being held more accountable to tie their BI initiatives to business value the data used to develop insights driving results need to be tightly coupled with data that can be validated through governance Achieving this on a systematic level requires developing a strategy and taking data governance seriously This requires involving the proper stakeholders defining the processes required and managing compliance over time Additionally the analytics infrastructure needs to support this initiative by providing the framework to manage data quality over time and provide steps to identify issues and support the organization as they try to fix them Certain solution providers now focus more extensively on providing these capabilities as a part of broader offerings to help organizations overcome their data challenges As organizations expand their data use and look at broader data sets to leverage as part of their analytics the importance of data governance increases Essentially it is becoming impossible for organizations to ignore the role data governance plays within any BI Big Data or Information Management initiative Organizations need to ensure the validity and reliability of their data The only way to do this is to ensure that data governance is an intrinsic part of any data related initiative More detail on how to do this can be found at Understanding The Role Of Data Governance Additionally here is a Webinar link developed with MicroStrategy that also shows a vendor s stance on Governed Data Discovery and the importance of integrating a data governance framework within broader BI and analytics solutions Understanding The Role Of Data Governance The importance of BI specific skill sets Wednesday September 24 2014 8 16 Posted in category Uncategorized No Comments BI implementations are becoming more commonplace as organizations realize they cannot overlook the management of and access to their data in order to facilitate better decision making What this means for many is the re evaluation of resources skill sets and project planning to ensure that the proper resources exist to support BI and analytics development Unfortunately many businesses overlook the fact that IT development expertise does not equal BI savvy There are SMBs without

    compare that with public information about people their preferences online habits etc to help businesses understand their market better The overall premise is the goal of saving time and changing the way market research is conducted by having access to social media data at your fingertips Identifying social networks likes sentiment and demographics by leveraging the information we provide to Facebook and combining that with customer data gathered by customers I will admit that it is actually hard for me to comment on Wisdom because although I think the analytics are cool I am the type of person with 70 friends on Facebook and use a different name that is only known to close family and friends because of the fact that I value my privacy That means no sharing tokens and no looking at content that requires me to grant permission to anyone I m not sure if this unease will dissipate but the more I see solutions like Wisdom and even Alert the more I realize that even though information is masked it doesn t mean that I want it shared And the thing that concerns me most is that most people don t always realize that they are being monitored so closely or that their personal information is being shared maybe more people should read the fine print Now on to Alert Alert provides a nice complement to social media type analytics because it takes information from retailers and allows them to target their customers via mobile apps by providing discounts account management shopping and the like to create a more seamless experience Customers can share promotions re order stock and have more of an interactive experience with retailers that hopefully enhances overall service and satisfaction Although not within the realm of traditional BI Alert highlights the path that BI will need to take to continue to offer value to organizations Simply adding a BI tool to analyze information only gets organizations so far In order to get the most out of information assets companies need to take action Alert takes POS and other retail related data and creates a way to better manage customers and target marketing and sales initiatives to customers So although not the traditional way of leveraging analytics it takes the best of two worlds managing data and business analytics and combines it with social media style focused targeted retailing Usher and mobile app dev Here s where everything gets funky Based on the ability to develop BI applications on mobile platforms MSTR has a goal of expanding this capability and becoming a competitive force within the mobile app dev space Although interesting in theory because it is still fairly new it remains to be seen where this will take them in terms of customer base and market position Usher described as a mobile identity network to provide more secure access to secure locations both physical and online takes away the need for passwords key cards and the like Some great demos were

  • WiseAnalytics Blog » Understanding Business Requirements Are Essential For Analytics Projects
    already in tune with what analytics related issues exist not understanding that high level requirements are no substitute for understanding the challenges people face on a daily basis Consequently successful analytics initiatives require an in depth understanding of the business challenges being faced to ensure that tools selected address ongoing business needs while ensuring security and scalability Proper requirements gathering requires time built in to the project plan to allow business analysts and project managers the time to adequately assess existing gaps and business challenges being faced by future users and those affected by the outcome of the analytics initiative Understanding what gaps currently exist people s expectations of use how often they will be interacting with information how not having valid and reliable data affects their roles and what they feel could enhance their jobs are all topics that need to be addressed Once an organization understands how business challenges being faced and data overlap they can work to translate those requirements into technical requirements used to identify specifications for the platform required This choice will differ within each organization meaning that leveraging knowledge from previous roles at other companies may or may not be the best fit moving forward Understanding in depth business requirements helps organizations identify the best fit technology requirements and provides support for the justifications needed for additional hardware and software acquisitions Although more time consuming organizations willing to understand the challenges of their business users are more likely to ensure adoption as well and help achieve a quicker time to value as users can access what they need out of the gate and not have to make requests for requirements that were never gathered This post was brought to you by IBM for Midsize Business and opinions are my own To read more on
