About our Presentation

The goals of most Data and Analytics Strategy and Roadmap efforts are to illustrate the possible, generate actionable designs and plans, and perhaps most importantly get budget and approval to execute plans.

  • Using ecosystem thinking (people, process, technology) to create a holistic solution
  • Leveraging reference architectures and guiding principles to go faster
  • Designing fit-for-purpose solutions, not picking a tool
  • Thinking big, and starting smart
  • Achieving speed-to-value
  • Getting to “Go”
