Building & Fostering Data-Driven Organizations


Nick Goodhartz


The amount of data that organizations collect, store, and catalog is increasing at an astonishing pace. The potential of this data to transform a company is practically limitless, however, many organizations still struggle to fully realize the value of their data. So how do you transform into a data-driven organization? Realizing the full value of your data means empowering everyone to make better decisions with it, and this cannot be done simply by choosing the right technologies. Whether your organization is new to modern, self-service analytics or you’ve already deployed and need to scale the use of data, this session explains the proven core capabilities and repeatable processes used to empower more people to make data-driven decisions, and how to build a thriving data-driven mindset throughout your organization.

1) Realize the value of the three core capabilities—agile deployment, analytics proficiency, and user community – that are at the heart of every data-driven organization.
2) Recognize how a defined and flexible governance framework is at the core capabilities.
3) Understand the proven four-stage process that moves your organization through decision points of the core capabilities.
4) Observe how Tableau, the trusted standard in modern analytics and business intelligence platforms, enables entire organizations to develop and foster data-driven decision making.
