An Analytics Roundtable Video: Finding Answers in the Data

One of the highlights of the InformationWeek Conference in May in Las Vegas was the All Analytics CIO Roundtable, a breakfast event where executives from five organizations met to share their experiences, strategies, and views relating to the use of big data and analytics.

We will be posting excerpts from the roundtable over the coming weeks.

In this first segment, our panel addressed questions relating to how analytics are changing the way their organizations do business. You'll learn pretty quickly that one of the key changes is in the company culture, as managers address the challenge of finding not just data but finding the right data to address business challenges.

Like finding that needle in a haystack, the challenge is making sense of up to 4.25 million rows of data collected every night.

What changes have analytics brought to your organization? Share your thoughts in a comment below.

I think it is interesting that the first CIO found culture to be the big barrier, not surprising, but interesting. I am also not surprised that the other speaker found they have an abundance of data. I have seen this a lot, where there is just too much to know what to do with it and insights and advantages are missed because of it.
