In this session, you'll learn the best approached to self-service BI implementation.

Large companies do suffer with shadow IT systems and rogue analyst databases hidden under desks. With new Microsoft Power BI and a plethora of different, extremely compelling, self-service reporting tools flooding the market, this issue has become more critical than ever to proactively address. Enterprise self-service BI deployments do require governance structure, processes and workflows - it truly is a critical success factor. If you simply install the BI tool and start rolling it out enterprise-wide with no governance in place, you WILL have an uncontrollable mess, compliance and reporting risks. It is much better to roll out self-service BI the right way from the beginning. In this session, we will discuss approaches and frameworks for getting your self-service BI implementation successfully launched and governed. Although these principles apply to all tools regardless of vendor, session examples will showcase Microsoft Power BI, Excel, SQL Server Analysis Services and SharePoint solutions.

You will learn:
  • Understand what happens without self-service BI governance
  • Approaches to self-service BI implementation
  • Review proven frameworks, tools and workflows for enterprise self-service BI governance roll outs
