ICT executives and data analytics specialists are facing ever-increasing demands from business stakeholders. Driven by vendors’ promises of agile, self-service analytics and instant access to big data, business stakeholders expect the world, while concerns of governance and data quality are often overlooked.

In this webinar replay, IBRS explores the growing tension between business stakeholders expectations and the ICT group’s ability to provide appropriate guardrails for analytics.

The video explores:

  • How the concerns of business stakeholders differ from those of ICT
  • The four operating models of business intelligence
  • The emergence of data mesh architecture, and the potential impact
  • Using data literacy maturity to drive an evolving and practical data strategy
