Friday, March 5, 2021, 1:20 PM - 2:40 PM
Jon Avrach

While we have yet to discover all of the ways that COVID-19 has impacted organizations and will continue to affect them for years to come, there are two things we know for certain: it dramatically accelerated cloud technology adoption and put a spotlight on all of the BI dashboard’s shortcomings. Dashboards that merely display a predefined set of metrics are no longer enough. From decision-makers in the C-suite to marketers to accounts payable managers, everyone in the organization needs the ability to explore data, uncover critical answers, and make decisions on demand.

In this roundtable led by Sigma Computing Evangelist Jon Avrach, we will discuss:

  • The failure of self-service BI and why we are still analyzing data in spreadsheets
  • The decline of the dashboard and why empowering business teams to explore data benefits the entire business
  • Transitioning from a “read-only” BI mentality to interacting with data in a way that reveals untapped opportunities and potential outcomes

Come ready to share ideas for developing a future-proof data strategy that empowers non-technical teams and increases the value analysts bring to organizations.
