Better Together—RPI & Birst
Presenters: Aaron Epps, John Duda
Date/Time: 5/15; 1:00 pm
Description: Organizations are realizing the incredible advantages that a well-designed BI & Analytics program can bring them. However, too many of those organizations are also attempting to implement these tools without combining the business context with the technology. Unfortunately, these attempts have resulted in implementations that run the gamut from not-as-useful to outright failures. Join RPI's Aaron Epps, Senior Solutions Architect & Strategist for BI/Analytics, and Infor's John Duda, Global Solutions Engineer for Birst, to discuss how a value-based design process that places your analytics needs in business context can ensure that this effort best serves your organization's needs. They will discuss the benefits of a value-based design, the implementation methodologies that generate success, and how realistically approaching a BI project from a business needs perspective can change the game entirely.
