IT and lines of business (LOBs) have long been known to butt heads over data accessibility and business intelligence. And now, with the rising strategic importance of analytics and data-driven decision making, the infighting is intensifying. Many LOBs, as a recent IDC study shows, are deliberately working around IT to fulfill their data and analytics needs. But it's not too late for CIOs to regain their authority, says IDC.
Big data, in fact, provides them the perfect opportunity. It requires an advanced enterprise analytics strategy, and an IT foundation capable of supporting it. Smart CIOs will take advantage, reasserting IT as trusted advisor for enterprise big-data initiatives.
As a former CIO (at Medtronics), James Dallas has given IT's role in big data a lot of thought. And he, too, believes it presents a great opportunity for CIOs, as he shared in a recent webinar series, "Busting the Four Analytics Myths" (watch on demand). Tune in to this A2 Radio episode for his thoughts on analytics, big data, and IT. You'll learn about the importance of:
- Elevating IT throughout the enterprise
- Shifting IT's focus from control to collaboration
- Making peace with the business
