Agile BI Without Shadow IT
With such a focus on data governance – how our data is curated, organized, and accessed – we sometimes forget to govern how our data is actually used in BI and analytics. After providing self-service tools to their users, businesses are finding a proliferation of shadow IT environments: something like Excel Hell, but based on new Agile BI tools rather than spreadsheets.
The result is rapidly created shadow-IT BI applications that aren’t curated, governed, or scalable, or rock-solid BI applications that aren’t agile. In this webinar, Forrester analyst Boris Evelson will discuss how to apply BI governance to get the agility of self-service without a proliferation of shadow IT.
