Pervasive business intelligence

I attended the IM 2010 – Information as an asset conference last week.

It was a thought provoking day with a really good mix of topics – ranging from people’s experience of running an effective data governance programme,  looking at PowerPivot, to a great presentation by Frank Buytendijk – ‘Dealing with dilemmas: where business analytics fall short’ – which looked at wider cultural issues related to organisations.

The main themes that I took away were:

  • Information technology is becoming more pervasive – with information being the key to tying it all together.
  • In this ‘joined up world’ – effective data management and governance become even more critical for providing true business intelligence.
  • Thinking about the meaning/definitions of data in your organisation is a good place to start on this journey.

The slides for the presentations can be downloaded here.
