I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
I'm only responsible for what I say not for what you understand.

Mobile BI And Cloud BI Evaluation Criteria | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

Mobile BI and cloud BI are among the top trends that we track in the industry. Our upcoming Enterprise BI Platforms Wave™ will dedicate a significant portion of vendor evaluation on these two capabilities. These capabilities are far from yes/no checkmarks. Just asking vague questions like “Can you deliver your BI functionality on mobile devices?” and “Is your BI platform available in the cloud as software-as-a-service?” will lead to incomplete vendor answers, which in turn may lead you to make the wrong vendor selections. Instead, we plan to evaluate these two critical BI platform capabilities along the following parameters:

Chief Data Officers Are A Good Idea -- But How Is That Going To Work? | Forrester Blogs

Chief Data Officers Are A Good Idea -- But How Is That Going To Work? | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

It seems to be popular these days amongst industry pundits to recommend that organizations add a new Cxx role: the Chief Data Officer (CDO). The arguments in favor of this move are exactly what you'd think: the rapidly accelerating importance of information in the enterprise, and, as important, the heightened perception of the importance of information by business executives. The attention on information comes from all the rich new data that simply didn't exist before: sensor data from the Internet Of Things, social media, process data -- really just the enormous volume of data resulting from the digitization of everything. Add to all that: new technology to handle big data in a reasonable time frame, user-friendly mobile computing in the form of tablets, data virtualization software and data warehouse appliances that significantly accelerate the process of getting at the information for analysis, and the promise of predictive analytics, and there's plenty of cause for an information management rennaisance out there. With a little luck, the activity it catalyzes will also improve enterprises' ability to manage the data and content that's not so new but also very important that we've been struggling with for the last decade or so.

BI Leader Job Description | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

I often get client requests to help them define Business Intelligence (BI) leader/executive/manager job description. Here's what I typically provide

Our research on Agile BI organizational structures is a good starting pointSince we don't do a deep dive into individual job descriptions or salaries in that research, here's a great external resource from TDWI and  Robert Half International

And finally, here's a description of a senior BI architect/manager/executive I've used in the past. Would love to hear from everyone on what's missing, what can be added, changed, etc.
