Maximizing Business Value:

How to Manage BI in a Time of Rapid Change

Leaders of business intelligence and analytics programs are responsible for setting strategy and direction that will deliver optimum business value from their organisation’s data resources. This is a challenging task since both business strategies and technology change rapidly, forcing BI leaders to continually revamp their roadmaps, analytical architectures, and development processes, and reassess their human and technological resources.

Join us at an upcoming BI Leadership dinner, led by thought leader Wayne Eckerson, to interact with like-minded BI directors and managers as they discuss the latest BI technologies and trends, share ideas and best practices and interact with each other in a relaxed after-work setting.

Discussion topics include:

  • The new and emerging BI ecosystem
  • Top-down versus bottom-up BI
  • Key stumbling blocks to measuring the business value and true ROI of BI
  • Accelerating time to value for BI
  • Agile techniques for developing next-gen BI applications
  • Rapid delivery of optimal BI solutions
  • The four “intelligences” that will dominate BI in 2020
