Who owns enterprise analytics and data?

Is it the CFO? What do you think?

Blog-post by,

With the increasing importance of analytics to the enterprise, the question becomes who should own the analytics and data agenda. This question really matters today because, according to Thomas Davenport, “business processes are among the last remaining points of differentiation.” For this reason, Davenport even suggests that businesses that create a sustainable right to win use analytics to “wring every last drop of value from their processes”.

Most mid-market organizations – those with $25M to $500M in annual revenues – have outgrown their existing ERP systems, but many are not aware of this dilemma and the additional challenges it will present down the road. These fast-moving organizations are often too focused on the business at hand to make sweeping IT changes every year. Moreover, they find they can make do with what they already have in place, even if they are relying on home grown systems or a disparate collection of third-tier solutions that are barely held together.

Our #CIOchat yesterday argued the merits of #BigData and how much traction it is getting. No one doubted its importance, but a few went back to square one by asking for a crisper definition of the term. Therein lies part of the problem: there's no universal definition for #Big Data (to me, it's analytics that looks at more data).

Many CIOs today can’t keep pace with the communications needs of the enterprise. The volume of information and devices that need to be managed is growing and the costs can be unpredictable. The roster of vendors servicing the wired, wireless and cloud needs of an organization is creating a patchwork solution with many seams.

Competing on Analytics

Fixing data management

Blog-post by,

If you ask a CIO today about the importance of data to their enterprises, they will likely tell you about the need to “compete on analytics” and to enable faster business decisions. At the same time, CIOs believe they “need to provide the intelligence to make better business decisions”. One CIO said it was in fact their personal goal to get the business to a new place faster, to enable them to derive new business insights, and to get to the gold at the end of the rainbow”.
