Jake Freivald, VP Product Marketing, Information Builders
September 8, 2017: All businesses are inundated with data, but they can’t always see the value in that data because there are so many layers of technology that stand in the way: complex infrastructure, overlapping domains, and rigorous compliance requirements – complicated by a growing influx of data from multiple internal and external sources. Successful businesses learn to derive genuine value from their data by creating a value generation cycle. First they determine the specific business value their data can provide, and then, using the right technology to drive the process forward, they figure out how to harness that value to deliver tangible results to managers, operational workers, analysts, customers, and partners. We caught up with Brian Joynt to gain some insight on harnessing data for business value. View interview
