About this talk

Harnessing quality data and putting it to use is of the utmost importance for businesses going forward. A well-functioning data analytics process enables companies to make informed decisions in all facets of their business, increasing efficiency and often improving the bottom line. Building an insightful data analytics process, however, can be challenging. Data is often siloed, and the flow of information can be inhibited by poor pipelines and outdated data governance policies. A company may have all the data in the world, but if it’s of low quality, it can be worse than useless. For companies looking to build their data capabilities, the right services and platforms are crucial. A top-tier service should be flexible, enable collaboration, and promote cross-platform integration. The right services and platform can make the seemingly daunting task of building up modern and efficient data governance policies a breeze. In Alation’s ‘Enabling More Business Users to Leverage Trusted Data,’ we’ll explore how a business can implement a data analytics platform that gives their employees the data to make the best decisions at every level. Topics for discussion include: - Why data analytics and governance are important in the modern business environment - Common problems companies face in their data analytics process - Determining what services and platforms provide the best ROI - How to seamlessly integrate data analytics platforms and governance into existing systems - And more
