CIOCAN National Webinar Series Launches September 20

Joining with National Sponsor Info-Tech Research Group, the CIO Association will host a three-part webinar series from intended to provide CIO members with operational thought-leadership in current, game changing IT practices.
Each webinar, moderated by a CIO Board member, Kim Robinson, will focus on specific subject matter and provide attendees with a strategic set of tools and templates to help you understand the challenges and develop your roadmap, but also implement a set of trusted practices validated through research across the industry.
The first seminar, presented by Crystal Singh, Senior Manager in Info-Tech’s BI and Analytics Practice will focus on

Game Changing BI Strategy:
Leveraging your data and third party data to drive growth

Today, many firms are finding themselves lost in a sea of Big Data, which requires adoption of a distinct data management strategy before putting products in place.
How much historical data should you retain? Can predictive analytics lead you to better decision making in how you support your customers? Is the BI direction you have set, measurable?  Does it deliver anticipated ROI?
Your Challenges:
* IT and BI providers are under pressure to provide an environment that facilitates flexible delivery of data to business users to empower informed decision making.
* Even if a BI strategy was originally developed, its relevance declines over time if BI providers are not continually revisiting ever-changing business needs and the reality of new data sources that could be added in the mix.
* Many organizations jump straight into solution design and purchase the latest BI platform without a true understanding of the organization’s needs, or without assessing practices and processes around the data feeding BI.
After this webinar, Association members will be given access to download the full set of Info-Tech’s BI Strategy tool set which includes assessment of your current BI practice, end-user satisfaction survey, roadmap templates, and a proven format to present your strategic BI direction to senior executives.
Register here to join us on September 20th, 2016 for the first informative session in the series.
