Align Business Data & Analytics for Digital Transformation

Thursday, May 21, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

Your success in the digital world relies primarily on how well you manage and analyze the data coming from disparate internal systems and external channels. You need to understand how to innovate and leverage digital data to drive sales and productivity.

Existing principles driving traditional data architecture are inadequate to support the volume, variety, and velocity of this new data ecosystem. In these scenarios, information governance (master data management, metadata, data quality and data governance) becomes highly critical in terms of providing the context for operational, competitive and advanced analytics.

Companies require a data architecture and strategy that can support efficient digital transformation by unlocking the value in all data sources to provide mission-critical insights and informed decision-making.

Join us and learn:

  • Five information management pillars necessary for digital transformation
  • Stages of digital information maturity, reflecting the typical path of an organization implementing this new data ecosystem
  • Issues, challenges, and approaches to governing this new architecture
  • Actionable Data: Mastering the Hybrid Analytics Mix

    Wednesday, May 27, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
    With an increase in the adoption of cloud applications, most organizations today are in some form of hybrid state (i.e. using a combination of on-premise and cloud applications to run their business). Regardless of where the data resides, you need a complete view of the company spanning across different parts of the business, combining insightful data across both onsite and public cloud instances.

    In this webinar, we’ll look at multiple approaches that organizations have successfully used to consolidate data from multiple cloud and on-premise applications and to perform seamless analytics across these varied data sources.
