Business Discovery and The Information Supply Chain


Whether you call it Data Discovery, Self-Service Business Intelligence, or Business Discovery, it is clear that user-driven technologies are transforming the way data is analyzed and managed within organizations. QlikView has been leading this change for many years. In this presentation we will review the current state of Business Discovery technologies for users. However we will also consider important developments in metadata intelligence and administration that make it possible for IT departments to manage the complexity of user-driven systems. Finally we will look to a future where everyone is mobile, data is pervasive and there is no such thing as an end-user!
