Ending the Data Battle Between Business and IT

The battle between business and IT has never been more profound.

Business users have growing customer expectations, changing market dynamics, increasing competition, and evolving regulatory conditions to deal with. These factors compound the pressure on business decision makers to act now. Unfortunately, they often can’t get the data they need when they need it.

Research shows that business managers often have to make data-driven decisions within one day. However, the time to build a single report using traditional BI methods can take six weeks or longer and a typical business intelligence deployment can take up to 18 months.

On the IT side, teams are feeling the pressure. They have a long list of items to do for the short run and long run. Regarding data management, IT has to try to combine data from multiple sources, ensure that data is secure and accurate, and deliver the data to the business user as requested.

Given the need for “data now,” in relation to the bandwidth concerns placed on IT, many organizations find that their enterprise lacks the skills, technology, and support to use their corporate data to keep up with competitors, customer needs, and the marketplace.

Adding to this existing challenge is the notion that companies are continuously adding new data sources, but each new data integration can take weeks or even months. By the time the work is complete, it’s likely that a newer, better source has already taken its place.

Automation is a force that is driving change throughout the entire BI stack. Just look at the proliferation of self-service data visualization tools. But self-service analytics can quickly go awry without adequate governance.
