  • The State of Healthcare Analytics & Self-Service BI Dec 7 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jen Underwood, Founder & Principal Consultant of Impact Analytix
    Outcome driven healthcare organizations today are embracing analytics and self-service BI reporting programs. Where do you stand in comparison to your peers? How far have they progressed in the analytics maturity model? What are their common challenges, gaps, and successes? What other technologies are they exploring? Please join me to review our recent research and openly discuss our findings.
  • Delivering Governed Enterprise Power BI with Pyramid Analytics Recorded: Nov 15 2016 51 mins
    Jen Stirrup, Microsoft Data Platform MVP
    In this session, we will cover how to design a governed, enterprise self-service reporting strategy. Topics include solution selection requirements, organizational structure, architecture, implementation checklist and best practices for responsibly implementing self-service BI across an enterprise. We look at ways to fill gaps and augment existing Microsoft BI or Power BI environments. We'll also share organizational models for delivering self-service BI with agility yet maintaining strong governance with Pyramid Analytics best-in-class capabilities.
  • The Power of Context: Better Reporting Through Contextualized Analytic Data Recorded: Aug 30 2016 57 mins
    Peter Sprague & Dan Wilmot
    Traditional business reporting is often one-size-fits-all. It rarely provides the targeted analytic content required by different decision-makers with unique informational needs. Business leaders need more than just accurate and timely reporting—they need data-driven analytic context. In this webinar, we’ll examine how organizations can benefit from modern BI tools that feature advanced, customizable reporting capabilities (smart infographics, dynamic text, and more) that automatically deliver contextualized analytic content for specific users. Examples will be demonstrated using Pyramid Analytics’ BI Office.
  • Successful Governance Involves More Than Data Access Recorded: Jul 26 2016 47 mins
    Peter Sprague, VP Product Marketing
    True governance covers numerous aspects of the business intelligence environment – not just who has access to what data but how reports, dashboards, and other content is managed. This webinar will discuss challenges organizations commonly run into and how successful governance programs must not only correctly identify all of these aspects, but understand how they all fit together.
  • Analytic Platforms and the Value of Shared Context and Business Logic Recorded: Jun 14 2016 44 mins
    Peter Sprague, VP Product Marketing
    Modern self-service personal productivity analytic tools allow individual users to create sophisticated calculations and sets. However, for an organization to maximize the value of analytics this business logic must be released from myriad of spreadsheets and documents that it is embedded. Join us to discuss how analytic platforms allow data-driven organizations to centralize, share and contextualize this content.
  • Analytic Platforms and the Decision Lifecycle Recorded: May 17 2016 26 mins
    John Hormachea, Director of Product Marketing
    Today’s organizations face increased decentralization and accelerating decision. To meet these challenges, decision makers are demanding Self-service analytic tools that support the entire decision lifecycle.
  • Analytic Platforms and Organizational need for Pervasive Business Intelligence Recorded: Apr 19 2016 49 mins
    Peter Sprague, VP Product Marketing
    Every decision maker needs access to reliable information to do their job. This has only become more critical with the rise of the Digital IT organization. Join Peter Sprague while he discusses traditional ways that organizations have faced this challenge, along with a discussion of analytic platforms and how they fit into the transformation towards true data-driven organizations.
  • The Role of IT in Enterprise Business Intelligence: IT-Enabled vs. IT-Governed Recorded: Mar 1 2016 35 mins
    Eric Lofstrom - BlueGranite, Peter Sprague - VP Product Marketing - Pyramid Analytics
    As decision makers clamor for access to data, many business intelligence projects are implemented with limited IT involvement and governance. This results in data privacy and security breaches in addition to inconsistent or incomplete use of data. To counter these adverse effects, Gartner predicts a return to governed enterprise BI solutions. In this session we will address the differences between IT-Enabled and IT-Governed business intelligence platforms. We will also consider the need for a governed self-service analytics platform and how organizations can achieve that goal.
  • Challenges of large scale BI deployments Recorded: Feb 2 2016 46 mins
    Dave Fackler, BI Architect and Author
    Learn about large scale BI deployments from Dave Fackler who spent the past 18 months implementing the BI Office suite from Pyramid Analytics within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Dave helped architect and build the entire data warehouse and business intelligence environment and infrastructure supporting over 350,000 professionals serving more than 6 million veteran patients each year. Dave has also been the lead resource for educating content users and content developers within the VA, crafting and managing a full training and support system that helps over 20,000 users utilize over 50,000 reports and 10,000 dashboards on a daily and weekly basis.

    Dave Fackler, BI Architect and Author will talk about:
    • Adoption – Selecting appropriate tools and training plans to accelerate adoption
    • Governance and usage monitoring around access, content and data sources

  • Data Modeling in the Enterprise Recorded: Dec 15 2015 46 mins
    Chris Webb, Independent Consultant; Peter Sprague, VP Solutions Engineering @ Pyramid Analytics
    Data Modeling is a critical component of enterprise BI. Most data modeling is desktop-based. This can lead to a large number of problems including scale, maintenance, collaboration and security.
    Join Chris Webb independent consultant and Peter Sprague VP Solutions Engineering at Pyramid Analytics for a discussion about how to avoid an epidemic of poorly designed and scattered data models throughout an organization. Questions tackled will include:
    -What is the impact of poor data modeling decisions?
    -Can data modeling decisions be delayed?
    -Do new tools and technologies alleviate the need for good data modeling?
    -What are the data modeling needs of an enterprise?
  • If You Think OLAP is Dead – Think Again Recorded: Nov 17 2015 45 mins
    Chris Webb, Independent Consultant; Peter Sprague, VP Solutions Engineering @ Pyramid Analytics
    One reason why some vendors promote the idea that OLAP is dead is because they are promoting the idea of smaller, user created models (the desktop BI approach) rather than a single centralized model. While OLAP may be out of fashion, the capabilities and benefits of the technology make sense for many data warehouse scenarios.

    Join Chris Webb independent consultant specializing in Analysis Services, MDX, Power Pivot, DAX, Power Query and Power BI and Peter Sprague VP Solutions Engineering at Pyramid Analytics for a discussion about OLAP technology and the things you need to consider, including:
    •Centralized data models and security
    •OLAP vs Big Data Tools
    •OLAP, Data Volumes and Scale
