How to Get Through the Barriers that Impact BI Adoption and Pitfalls to Avoid Along the Way

Andrew Grohe, Partner and Technical Specialist, Project Leadership Associates

As organizations continue to shift from “survival” to “strategic” mode, executives are looking for new ways to impact revenue and grow their business. One critical element is to build a “visual landscape” of their financial environment with Business Intelligence, business analytics, performance management and data governance to provide a single version of the truth.

Research shows that labor is undoubtedly the most expensive element of deploying a Business Intelligence solution. However, organizations can often save money and lower the total cost of their BI solution by evaluating Open Source Business Intelligence (OSBI) as an alternative to traditional BI platforms. OSBI has seen a significant increase in deployment within corporate IT departments. This session will explore the reasons behind this trend, what you can expect to get from OSBI software, and challenges to implementing an OSBI platform.

How to Take Your BI/Analytics Discipline and Make it Mobile

John Fitzgerald, Senior Consultant, Analytics8

"Mobile BI" is a hot term lately. Though PDAs, pagers, and cell phones have been common for at least 10 years, the recent invention and rapid adoption of truly capable smartphones and tablets has caused both vendors and consumers to refocus on mobile applications. Dozens of mobile BI solutions exist, but the capabilities range from an emailed pdf to constantly updated and fully interactive solutions. "There's an app for that" means that just giving access to your existing BI environment on a smaller form factor isn't enough. Mobile BI means interactive applications for laptop, tablet, smartphone and more. Mobile BI means new business requirements and IT challenges. Find out what it takes to achieve mobile BI success, why you should invest in mobile BI, and see examples of places where it's working today.

In this session attendees will learn:

  • What it takes to achieve mobile BI success
  • Why you should invest in mobile BI
  • Pitfalls to avoid
  • How organizations have reaped the advantages of a mobile BI platform
