Learn how you can architect a scalable self-service analytics strategy from industry veterans at Microsoft, Tyson Foods, and Gigaom.

You’re invited!

Join this webinar panel for practical advice on how to structure your data-driven business intelligence (BI) practice – and extend self-service analytics to all of your data consumers to make smarter decisions at scale.

When more people can access self-serve analytics, it creates a flywheel effect, where the use of data improves the organization’s decisions over time, and in turn enhances the data’s bottom-line impact on the organization as a whole.

You’ll learn how to architect your systems and culture to encourage data sharing and to improve data trustworthiness and reliability. We will cover topics that will help you improve data literacy and democratize the use of data across your entire organization.
