The way in which organizations approach a digital transformation varies for a variety of reasons such as budget, business goals and the starting point. But, when taking a look at successful data driven companies there are a few themes that transcend industry, model, and region.
At this point in 2019, it is quite obvious that the technology landscape is changing rapidly. One hot topic that is impacting every industry and business unit is the facelift that data warehouses of the past are going through. While technology updates are a common occurrence, drastic changes in concepts like the pivot to cloud based modern data warehouses that boast immense functionality improvements are rare and extremely impactful to say the least. We could talk about the benefits of a cloud data warehouse all day but today we want to highlight the pitfalls of data warehouses of the past to exemplify the need for change and answer the new big question, “Is our data warehouse holding us back?” (more…)
Last and early this week some of the largest players in the game of enterprise technologies made big moves in the form of either acquisitions or partnerships in an effort to effectively position themselves and their customers for the future. As data sources, complexity, and demands for insights continue to rise at a rapid pace there is one thing becoming crystal clear; cloud data warehouses are essential. Successful forward thinking organizations are demanding single sources of the truth that can handle and aggregate their data while boasting advanced analytic services on the fly for every user, all the time. These acquisitions and partnerships that have been established speak to certain parts in the link of data storage, accessibility, analysis, and visualization.
In a technology focused society business leaders often forget to focus on their most important resource, their people. But, organizations do have the opportunity to innovate with the correct mindset and change the way their people work. By focusing on their people and empowering users to make better decisions through technology organizations can become more efficient and “Smart” in their every day operations.
In 2019, it is no secret that analytics can drastically improve the way organizations operate and make decisions. Less well known however is the fact that 49% of CEO’s are changing their talent strategies to utilize people analytics specifically and focus on how they can attract, retain, and engage their workforces more efficiently.

As with many large organizations, creating a single version of the truth that decision-makers can act upon is a challenge. Office supply store Staples is no different. With over 79,000 employees, 2,000 locations, and operations in 26 different countries, it is easy to see why 75 weekly reports and upwards of 175 ad-hoc reports were not going to cut it. These reports were often outdated prior to even getting in the decision maker’s hands, which in turn reduced adoption and confidence in the analytic strategies that Staples aimed to pursue and drive growth from.
Pandera Systems Chief Data Officer, Matthew Thomas spoke with Kimberly Whitler of Forbes to explain why companies are turning to Chief Data Officers to generate more value out of data beyond the typical CIO and CMO roles.
Whitler (Forbes): Can you describe the CDO role?
Thomas: To truly appreciate the increasing need for the CDO’s role, one must first understand that 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the past two years alone. That’s a lot of information for a company to suddenly organize, secure and make sense of, let alone make a strategic decision on. The CDO emerged as organizations realized the need for someone to lead the management of all of this data as well as guide the organization in technology adoption and training necessary to storing and distributing it all.
Pandera Systems sat down with Managing Director, Kevin Curley, to learn first hand how Self Service Business Intelligence can help organizations capitalize on before thought weaknesses and complaints of their analytics projects. According to Kevin, all businesses are in quite the transition period as it stands right now in 2018. Most have realized the value that analytics can bring and have made decisions to implement central Business Intelligence platforms.
