With such a focus on data governance – how our data is curated, organized, and accessed – we sometimes forget to govern how our data is actually used in BI and analytics.
After providing self-service tools to their users, businesses are finding a proliferation of shadow IT environments: something like Excel Hell, but based on new Agile BI tools rather than spreadsheets.
The result is rapidly created shadow-IT BI applications that aren’t curated, governed, or scalable, or rock-solid BI applications that aren’t agile.
In this webinar, Forrester analyst Boris Evelson will discuss how to apply BI governance to get the agility of self-service without a proliferation of shadow IT.

Internet of Things (IoT) data is often isolated within companies – and that means lost value. Even when you begin to integrate IoT data with the business, today’s big data analytics approaches don't support real-time insight and action.
Leading firms differentiate themselves by integrating business information with IoT data to create better customer experiences and more efficient operations. This is achieved by building integrated systems of insights that bring together the right people, processes, and analytics technology in a closed-loop process.
Join our webinar to learn:
• Why companies are losing value on their IoT investments
• Actionable tips on how to address top roadblocks
• What systems of insight look like in action
