About the Webinar

As more and more business roles are expected to be data-driven, the demand for data is growing exponentially. Unfortunately, existing tools mostly require data specialists to curate, query, and extract the data needed to fulfill each request. That model simply won’t scale. The only way businesses can scale data-driven decision making is with self-service tools. But ungoverned self-service to data doesn’t lead to better decisions, it leads to chaos. So the critical question for businesses is how to leverage analysts’ knowledge to help non-analysts self-serve to data in a trustworthy way.. Check out this episode of DM Radio! Host @eric_kavanagh will interview his guest to discover best practices and great ideas in the field of self-service BI.
