Webinar Overview

In recent years, in survey after survey, chief information officers have named “business intelligence and analytics” among their top priorities. Clearly, the demand for analytic support and technologies is growing across all parts of the business, from marketing and HR to finance and the supply chain. 

But can CIOs get more impact by applying analytics to IT’s own operations?

Tom Davenport, today’s leading expert in analytics and business, says there are many applications of advanced analytics in IT, and these applications go far beyond just reporting on basic operational performance. These uses of analytics range from predicting when key components of the IT infrastructure might develop problems to predicting security breaches rather than responding to them after the fact.  

And, in the future, there will be an even greater need for the use of analytics by IT. That’s because as every business becomes more digital, organizations must know how every system is performing and how it is likely to perform in the future. And focusing on analytics in IT operations could make it easier for IT to adopt new automation-oriented tools, including automated decision-making technologies, that manage mainstream operational IT tasks. 

On October 14, join leading analytics expert Tom Davenport in a live, interactive video webinar to explore the challenges and opportunities that analytics present now and in the future for IT departments and their leaders.
