Getting to the Next Level with Visual Analytics and Governed Data Discovery (with TDWI)


TDWI Speaker: David Stodder, TDWI Research Director


About this Webinar:

Dull reports and static bar charts are old news: Business users today are excited about modern visual analytics, data discovery, and intuitive business intelligence. Tools, applications, and cloud-based services are making it easier for users to derive powerful, actionable insights from a widening array of data. Users across organizations may finally have an alternative to limited spreadsheets and BI reports – and to waiting in IT’s backlog for developers to give them what they need.

While there are clear advantages to giving more users more control over how they access and interact with data through more self-service technologies, organizations need to think about how they can properly govern their experiences. Governance considerations include data security, quality, blending and integration, and adherence to policies and regulations. IT also needs to manage performance, availability, and other issues that are critical to successful and productive user experiences.

Join this Webinar to find out how your organization can get to the next level with visual analytics and governed data discovery. The Webinar discussion will focus on key steps for improving users’ data interaction experiences through better-governed visual analytics, data discovery, and intuitive, easier-to-use BI. It will include a presentation by TDWI Research and topical panel discussion with representatives from SAS and TIBCO Spotfire.

You will learn:

  • Current technology trends for improving personalization, productivity, and the scale, scope, and speed of visual analytics, data discovery, and intuitive BI
  • Best practices for “governed” data discovery; balancing IT responsibilities for managing data assets with user demands for control over analytics
  • Addressing data quality, integration, and related governance concerns while supporting democratized visual analytics and data discovery
  • Discussion with technology solution providers SAS and TIBCO Spotfire about how users can get to the next level
