Agile BI and the Information Oriented Architecture
Inaugural Web Report
Wednesday, March 1, 2011
Webcast/Slides

Achieving agility in business through ‘Agile BI’ requires more than just a commitment to agile design methodologies. As with all Business Intelligence programs, the devil is in the underlying details, the migrations, the transformations, all the leg work required to move data where it’s needed. While there are no shortcuts to realizing the dream of Agile BI, there are things that can be done to enable agility. Specifically, organizations can design what Analyst Robin Bloor describes as an Information Oriented Architecture.

Watch this Webcast to hear Bloor outline his vision for the data-oriented companion to an SOA. He’ll describe the necessary component parts, and offer insights about how your organization can design, launch and maintain an IOA. He’ll also provide details on which kinds of technologies should be used in order to enable the kind of self-service BI that pundits for years have touted as the Holy Grail of informatics.

This Webcast will kick off The Bloor Group’s inaugural Web Report, a transparent research process that will delve into the what, how and why of Agile Business Intelligence.


 

The IOA: First Round Table
Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Webcast/Slides

An Information-Oriented Architecture enables quick access to the whole range of data assets within an organization. Achieving that vision requires a variety of technologies. Check out this roundtable discussion to learn how new and old approaches can be leveraged to harness an IOA.

Dave Duggal of Ideate will extol the virutes of an “interaction architecture” that uses a RESTful approach to avoid “premature optimization.” Bob Eve of Composite Software will tout the value of an Enterprise Data Layer. The final 15 minutes of the hour will include a detailed Q&A with all audience members and Tweeters.


 

The IOA: Second Round Table
Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Webcast/Slides

Most business users don’t really care how they get their data, so long as it’s clean, accurate and timely. That’s the whole idea with an Information Oriented Architecture — you design an environment in which users can access the data they want, when they want it. The Cloud obviously expands the playing field, but the importance of understanding options for data access and usage remains paramount.

Watch the second Roundtable Discussion to gain insights from veteran IT Analyst Colin White, as well as Bloor Group Chief Analyst Robin Bloor, CEO Eric Kavanagh, and guests Suresh Chandrasekaran of Denodo Technologies and Yves de Montcheuil of Talend. We’ll dig into the details of providing data via traditional ETL, as well as via data virtualization, federation, and other creative methods. We’ll also discuss the value of semantics, where data modeling fits into the IOA, and best practices for getting your organization on track.

The results are in, and the verdict is… Affirmative: More than half the respondents to our comprehensive survey said they do, in fact, have an Information Oriented Architecture! And that wasn’t the only surprise. Where does Cloud adoption stand for the enterprise? And what about Big Data solutions centered around Hadoop? What about Data Virtualization?

Watch this Findings Webcast to learn from Analyst Robin Bloor, along with Bloor Group CEO Eric Kavanagh. The complete findings of the survey will be revealed, and insights will be provided for the purpose of helping organizations improve their Information Architectures.
