Analytics is particularly challenging because the specialized nature of tools and approaches make the business value less accessible to business users. Frequently an intermediary with technical and business analysis skills is required to design, deliver and interpret data produced by multiple applications. Add to this the increasing complexity of the technology ecosystem with greater numbers of potential data sources and new approaches for leveraging data and what is possible is rapidly outstripping what is practical and cost effective. Business Intelligence and analytics dashboards need to be designed by experts with business leadership providing the strategic requirements. However, it is difficult to find this combination of skillsets in an efficient and cost effective structure. In many cases, specialist consulting firms are brought in to execute on projects with the enterprise becoming increasingly dependent on services or end users do not understand how to effectively use tools that are set up for their analysis and decision making. We will explore approaches for improving organizational maturity and building competencies at the points of greatest business need.
