ROI on Business Intelligence - Neil Raden on Next-Generation "Ease of Use"

Although the event is currently full, a few spots may open up, so if you want to claim any remaining seats the best thing is to join the wait list.

This is the next quarterly symposium of the TDWI NYC Tri-State Chapter.

This event will be especially interesting for members working in business intelligence for larger companies, or whose current or future work involves the high-stakes, high-return challenge of choosing and using the right set of BI tools, technology and analytic methodologies, and business decisions.

Our keynote speaker at the event is Neil Raden, one of the most experienced and thoughtful practitioners in the field. Neil is the founder of CEO of Hired Brains Research and is the author of a leading book on decision management entitled Smart Enough Systems: How to Deliver Competitive Advantage by Automating Hidden Decisions.

Looking for Business Intelligence ROI? A next-generation approach to “ease of use” may hold the answer

For decades, Business Intelligence has been seen as both an essential and sometimes disappointing area of technology investment. Billions of dollars have been invested in presenting insights to business managers, but frequently the ROI has been soft and difficult to measure.

Our March 6th keynote speaker, Neil Raden, has long been concerned about the fact that usage rates for large-sale BI systems has “stalled at 10 to 20 percent of users, depending on which survey you believe.”

Of course BI will survive, but Raden says “we may not recognize it ... the need to analyze and use data will not go away, but BI will be part of a 'decision management continuum' incorporating predictive modeling, machine learning, natural language processing, business rules, traditional BI, visualization, and collaboration capabilities.”

We will address the following questions:

∎ Why do many Business Intelligence implementations fail to achieve their potential?
∎ Will a broader definition of the concept enable better results?
∎ How can you optimize BI systems when you are not in complete control?
∎ What best practices and case studies are most instructive?

Neil Raden is CEO and Principle Analyst at Hired Brains Research. He is a long-time practitioner, well-known author and consultant focused on data warehousing, Business Intelligence, analytics, big data, and decision sciences. He is the author of "Smart (Enough) Systems,” together with James Taylor. This book focuses on decision automation for optimizing practical business decisions. A favorite topic for Mr. Raden has been how to integrate strategy, planning, management and execution as the tools to achieve optimum decision making.

Neil Raden's talk will be followed by networking and then, yet another amazing speaker, Tony Baer of Ovum Research.

The description of Tony's presentation is below:

Making Big Data Manageable: Getting Better Results by Managing Big Data Quality

Intersecting with Neil Raden's keynote, Ovum Principal Analyst Tony Baer asks, “what does it take to turn the promise of Big Data into tangible results?” Big opportunities to benefit from new technology have come and gone, yet the consistent challenge has been translating new potential into concrete benefits. Mr. Baer will share a practical perspective on making big data manageable by understanding key challenges you must overcome to leverage big data, especially the unique data quality issues the Big Data sources introduce.

Mr. Baer will also share his insight that while Business Intelligence and Big Data are viewed and managed separately, in reality "Big Data and Business Intelligence must converge." Big Data needs to be approached with "less of a silo mentality," and so does Business Intelligence.
