What you'll learn

  • Learn how to create a data-driven enterprise maturity model that spans technology and business requirements


A data-driven enterprise maximizes the value of its data. Data management, architectures, and engineering are considered critical assets and priorities, and data-backed decisions with transparent measures of quality and confidence differentiate the business.

But how do enterprises emerging from technology and organization silos get there? While applications are tied to the business outcome, data in its raw form is tied to cost. So how do you make the business case and then execute the organizational and technology changes so that data becomes a first-class citizen?

Teresa Tung and Jean-Luc Chatelain explain how to create a data-driven enterprise maturity model that spans technology and business requirements and walk you through use cases from the healthcare, oil and gas, and financial services industries that bring the model to life. The end state is not just an enterprise data platform but rather a platform of platforms needed so that your data platform interfaces with those of your partner ecosystem.

Topics include:

  • Strategy and governance: How do you make the business case and gain buy-in for organizational change?
  • Architecture: What is the architecture required for both data discovery and operationalization?
  • The development process: How do you enable a DevOps-like process for your data and analytics?
  • The user community: How do you gain self-service users for your platform?
  • Optimization: What are the business metrics and analytics needed to measure and optimize this journey?
