Level:  Business/Strategic

Defining and executing a strategy that extends analytics into the operational environment in a world of dynamic and "big" data present a number of challenges. Organizations seek to establish a creative and high impact analytic capability and align those capabilities within the context of the organizations' operational capabilities.

Employing a structured framework that allows managers to identify and prioritize required capabilities, align them with business strategies, and evaluate alternative implementation paths is critical to success. The DMM addresses foundational data management capabilities. By extending DMM practices into the strategy, requirements, and design processes of analytics, an integrated framework is created, to define and implement actionable roadmaps delivering operationalized high impact analytics.

In this discussion, you will learn:
• How the DMM best practices support the alignment of business strategy for analytics
• The role of the DMM in creating and integrating business priorities for enterprise analytics efforts
• The DMM-based framework for creating an analytics roadmap
