3:45 – 4:30 pm Presentation - The New Analytical Ecosystem: Organizational and Architectural Models for the New Age
By Wayne Eckerson, Eckerson Group How do organizations align the traditional disciplines of business intelligence (BI) with big data and analytics? Are these mutually exclusive or complementary technologies? What is the relationship between data scientists and BI professionals, data engineers and DW developers?

This session will paint a portrait of new business and technology dynamics at work in data-driven organizations today. It will describe the role of BI/DW in the new analytical ecosystem and discuss how to create robust organizational and data architectures to align business and IT professionals and continuously convert data into profitable insights and action.

In these presentations you will learn:

  • The business dynamics that rip most BI programs apart
  • The elements of a federated organizational architecture
  • How to evolve your current architecture into an analytical ecosystem leveraging big data
  • How to create an analytical architecture that supports the complete range of users and information requirements
These presentations are geared towards:
  • CxOs who want to create data-driven organizations with a strong analytical culture; business unit heads and data analysts who want better data and tools to drive insights and more business-savvy IT people; CIOs and VPs of IT who want to design business-centric data and analytical architectures and form robust BI or analytical centers of excellence; directors of BI, advanced analytics, and data warehousing who want to align more closely with business unit leaders, managers, and analysts; data architects, requirements analysts, and BI/ETL tools developers who want to maximize their effectiveness and improve their career opportunities.
