Live Analyst Briefing: The Analytic Platform: Empowering the Business Now
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 | 1:00pm PT/4:00pm ET
As businesses grapple with more and more data, analysts and data consumers have a growing expectation to get at those assets fast. All too often, business users are stymied by governance and performance roadblocks, making time-to-insight a relatively slow process. One solution is to leverage the power of an analytic platform, one that keeps data management in IT’s hands, and lets business analysts jump right in without the need for modeling and provisioning.
Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as he explains the principles behind a meaningful analytic platform. He’ll be briefed by Peter Hoopes and Allen Bonde of Actuate, who will tout their company’s BIRT Analytics, a solution that combines columnar database technology with pre-built algorithms and puts analytics in the hands of the business user in minutes, not days. They will show how their platform makes it easy to perform complex analytics on enterprise data and visualize results, without slowing down other systems or interfering with governance needs.
