Colin White to Lead Discussion on Empowering the Business with Agile Analytics

Colin White, founder of BI Research, a leading consulting firm helping companies benefit from evolving technologies in the areas of business intelligence and data management, will headline the February 26 broadcast of The Briefing Room discussing “Empowering the Business with Agile Analytics” at 4pm ET.

Joining White on the broadcast will be Robert Eve, executive vice president of Marketing with Composite Software and co-author of the book “Data Virtualization: Going Beyond Traditional Data Integration to Achieve Business Agility.” Eve will brief White on Composite’s mature data virtualization platform, which includes capabilities that help organizations leverage agile analytics.

According to White, today’s business analyst needs data from not only the data warehouse, but also the Web, big data, production systems, as well as via partners and vendors. In this episode, White will explain why analytical sandboxes and data hubs can be an analyst's “best friend” in solving data integration problems.

“More and more investigative work is being done up front formalizing our data structures for analytics,” White said. “The typical analyst spends more than 50 percent of their time chasing data, which slows delivery of analytic insights and limits the time available for thorough analysis.”

“Time-to-insight is fast becoming the mantra of today’s analysis-driven organizations,” added Eve. “Data virtualization has emerged as a mainstream solution for enterprises seeking a more agile solution to today’s fast changing business requirements.”
