Episode Description

Today’s buzz term: “BI” – business intelligence. Oxymoron? Or game-changer that can make your company smarter, more agile, able to leap over tall competitors in a single bound? Continuing our Apr. 4 and May 9 discussions, we’ll revisit why even the best intelligence needs a strategy, and look at big data, analytics, cloud, single version of the truth and more. The experts say: Brian Sommer / Techventive: “Detectives have hypotheses and working theories they try to prove or disprove. Why shouldn't BI initiatives use the same rigor to uncover huge insights into business?” Josh Greenbaum / EAC: “There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.” (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1999-03-01), The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) Colin Dover / SAP: “Responding to the seemingly simple business requests of providing a consolidated view of a global corporation is enough to send an IT department into a collective cold sweat.” Pour a cup and join us for How Smart Is BI without a Strategy? - Part 3
