Surya Mukherjee (Ovum) – Self-Service Analytics: From Static Reporting to Dynamic Discovery
The value of analysing data is enjoying a meteoric rise in profile among business users, evident from growing user evangelism of data analytics—often referred to as data activism. For most enterprises today, self-service and visual analytics solutions cannot be a "yes we do" or "no we don't" discussion. Organisations that ignore the prevalence and virally expanding popularity of free-to-try desktop analytic tools are doing so at their own peril; shadow IT usually thrives in the most locked down of IT environments. Instead, it is best to understand the pros and cons of these solutions and work self-service into the overall analytics strategy. Doing so not only helps prevent compliance mishaps but also helps organisations discover valuable insights that could positively influence business metrics.
We now live in a world shaped by data (both at a personal and professional level) and people express themselves through what they do with it. Inside every organization, users want to be actively engaged with their data; however, few of them have had the technology to effectively do so until recently. Now, with visual data discovery, more and more people are moving from passively consuming data to actively using it. We've entered the era of punk-style analytics, where anyone can play with data, in order to learn and make better decisions. But what defines this new do-it-yourself approach, and what does it mean for our organizations?
An Inside Look at Power of Governed Self-Service Visualization & Discovery. Deighton will take you on a tour of Qlik Sense to show you how users themselves can rapidly create visualizations from any device and any data source. You will see how all Qlik products share a unique ability to instantly explore data associations with no need for predefined questions. He will illustrate how users can present their findings through data storytelling then drill down directly to Qlik® Sense app to satisfy the curiosity of colleague’s questions. And because a great visualization or dashboard means nothing without the right data, Deighton will show how users build from a centralized library of pre-built data sets, expressions, and visualizations to ensure consistent use of data and values for unmatched governance and security.
