Agility in Business Intelligence
Andrew will share his work on designing and implementing capabilities designed to achieve greater agility in optimising customer information. Today’s businesses desire to make decisions and to gain insights faster than software engineers can deliver IT solutions to provide the required information. There is an increasing hunger for faster analysis and access to larger and increasingly diverse data sets yet traditional warehouse and analytics development entail a rigorous design with incumbent slow and costly timescales to deliver robust and trusted analytics. At the same time there are increasingly agile enabling tools that support the data scientist to access and mine data much more quickly. Combining these approaches looks like a win-win strategy.
Andrew is a Information & Data Architect at Zurich Insurance Company
