In a presentation at Data Summit 2019, Athena IT Solutions managing partner Richard Sherman discussed the four prevalent states of data analytics and BI today. For many reasons, we’re in these four states, said Sherman.
Silos: “One is we have lots of silos. Our organizations are set up as business functions. We have different business units. Our source systems, our ERP systems, et cetera, are all set up to handle functions because it’s more efficient, but then we somehow have to get that data together and get people to agree to key performance indicators and key ways to look at the business so we’re set up as silos and we implement data integration and BI and analytics in the silos architecture.”
