Today, businesses pour Big Data into data lakes to help them answer the big questions:
Which product to take to market?
How to reduce fraud?
How to retain more customers?
People need to get these answers faster than ever before to reduce “time to answer” from months to minutes. The data is coming in fast and the answers must come just as fast.
The answer is self-service data preparation and analytics tools, but with that comes an expectation that the right data is going to be there. Only by using a data catalog can you find the right data quickly to get the expected insight and business value. Download this white paper to learn more!
Business users want the power of analytics—but analytics can only be as good as the data. The biggest challenge nontechnical users are encountering is the same one that has been a steep challenge for data scientists: slow, difficult, and tedious data preparation. The increasing volume, variety, and velocity of data is putting pressure on organizations to rethink traditional methods of preparing data for reporting, analysis, and sharing.

Business users want the power of analytics—but analytics can only be as good as the data. To perform data discovery and exploration, use analytics to define desired business outcomes, and derive insights to help attain those outcomes, users need good, relevant data. Executives, managers, and other professionals are reaching for self-service technologies so they can be less reliant on IT and move into advanced analytics formerly limited to data scientists and statisticians. However, the biggest challenge nontechnical users are encountering is the same one that has been a steep challenge for data scientists: slow, difficult, and tedious data preparation.
For many years, traditional businesses have had a systematic set of processes and practices for deploying, operating and disposing of tangible assets and some forms of intangible asset. Through significant growth in our inquiry discussions with clients, and in observing increased attention from industry regulators, Gartner now sees the recognition that information is an asset becoming increasingly pervasive. At the same time, CDOs and other data and analytics leaders must take into account both internally generated datasets and exogenous sources, such as data from partners, open data and content from data brokers and analytics marketplaces, as they come to terms with the ever-increasing quantity and complexity of information assets. This task is clearly impossible if the organization lacks a clear view of what data is available, how to access it, its fitness for purpose in the contexts in which it is needed, and who is responsible for it.

Every corner of an enterprise needs technology to build new applications for their specific function or customer. IT needs to transform from its traditional function as the sole technology provider to become an adaptive, responsive and nimble organization that can keep up with the pace of the digital era as well as embrace the opportunities provided by a change-driven environment. This transformation can occur only if IT transforms itself into a strategic business enabler rather than a centralized technology function.
Being an enabler means that IT has to decentralize and democratize application development and data access to the different Lines of Business (LoBs) and functional business partners. This way, IT can concentrate on a partnership with the business - i.e. providing a set of strategic and consistent assets and technology.
