It’s hard to be innovative when your BI team is deluged with fixes, fighting fires, and basic data requests.  Yet to move from reactive, report-focused development to break through BI demands innovative BI teams and technologies.
In this keynote, Cindi Howson, founder of BI Scorecard and author of Successful Business Intelligence: Secrets to Making BI a Killer App, highlights:

  • Being proactive when there’s no time or budget for innovation
  • Evangelizing BI in a culture resistant to change
  • Prioritizing innovations that will provide the biggest value
  • The trends most disruptive to BI including mobile, social, visual data discovery, big data, and cloud.
