What you'll learn

A vision for the data-driven enterprise and a maturity model for getting there. Where they are in the journey and what others are doing to get there.


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?

We show an enterprise maturity model that maps a path to becoming a data-driven enterprise and bring it to life through use cases from the healthcare, oil and gas, and financial services industries. The end state is not just an enterprise data platform but spans technology and business requirements needed to create a digital 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?
