Enterprise Data Strategy

Retailers are at a tipping point with Data and Analytics. The traditional method of building a data warehouse / data marts over 2-3 years and then building reporting on top of these warehouses is quickly being replaced by new approaches to delivering data, insights and actions rapidly to the business. And the business across functions and product lines, are asking for more and more data and insights so that they can identify opportunities for growth and/or reduce costs. In addition, companies are struggling to figure out where to place their bets when it comes to investments in modern data technologies and platforms. Should they beef up their existing Data Warehouses, Appliances, and/or use HADOOP or Amazon? Should they add Visualization and Analytical Tools to their portfolio, and if so how will they support these new technologies? How do they align their investments in data with their business and strategic priorities?
