B & I’s Excellent Adventure: Create Excellence in Your Own BI Space-time Continuum

Presentation Summary

Darin Mattke, University of Texas, Austin

BICE (BI Center of Excellence), BICC (BI Competency Center) or whatever you want to call it (or not), creating excellence in BI is actually not as confusing as the myriad of names attributed to it. Because not all environments are created with theoretical or ideal infrastructure models and tools, even small, simple steps can be implemented to pave the path of quality, excellence, competence or whatever buzz-word, catch-phrase you want to use. Ideally, executive sponsorship, IT and business buy-in, data governance, and training/certification all contribute to the idea of BI excellence, but... What if our environment exists in the real world? What can we do to get started? Is it too late to do anything about it? What can I do!?!? This presentation will be a discussion of what and how to implement strategies that lead to great BI, as well as a glimpse of what has been done at UT to further the idea of quality, community, and collaboration. It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can. -Sydney Smith
