When we start working with businesses, in the early stages, we constantly reiterate the importance of the data journey. Why is this? Because often, it is an intimidating process. Big things want to be achieved and many times the roadmap can be unclear. In addition, there is no ‘end state’ for a data strategy. It is a living breathing organism.
When it comes to your big data strategy, how you can plan for success is a very important first step. Not everything needs to be achieved in the first phase – quite the opposite. Best practice and our experience suggests that getting to a minimum viable product, whatever that may look like, is the most important first step. This allows us to interact with the data, learn about it and start to ask questions. Once we do that, the next steps usually present themselves in the context of the wider vision.
In this joint webinar with IDC and Qlik, presenters Dan Vesset and Michael Distler provide attendees insights on how businesses can implement data analytics and build a data roadmap by getting the right data in the right form to the right people. This then empowers the organisation and sets them on the path to uncovering powerful insights.
In addition, they also discuss the potential pitfalls of the data journey as it relates to ddatabase governance, data management and how to plan for descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics.
This webinar is ideal for businesses wanting to gain insight into a data roadmap, build a data strategy and make analytics a competitive advantage – regardless of your maturity or skill level.
