October 2021 Newsletter

Happy Fall! We hope this note finds you all safe and healthy

It’s been a very busy month at Dresner Advisory Services, with an even busier Q4 now underway.

Real Business Intelligence 2021

Our 5th annual Real Business Intelligence conference took place September 21-22 and with our largest audience ever was another overwhelming success!

Attendees joined over the course of the two-day online event participating in workshops, roundtables, and sessions from a luminary external faculty and Dresner analysts. With extremely positive feedback from attendees and sponsors, we are actively planning for our next event.

Our thanks to this year’s sponsors who helped make the event a resounding success.

Data Collection

End user data collection is going strong. The mid-year program covers Analytical Data Infrastructure, Embedded BI, Data Engineering, Natural Language Analytics, and People Analytics (new).

We are reaching out to the Dresner end user community for their input and encourage you to share your unique link to the end user survey with your customer base. We’ve found that direct outreach, with follow up, obtains the best results. It’s also helpful to remind customers that they will receive complimentary research for their participation.

If you are an ADI vendor, please encourage customers to rate you in that section of the survey.

Please email Michelle if you need us to re-send your link or have questions on the process. We appreciate your efforts!

Market Studies

September was SME month! We published both the Small and Mid-Sized Enterprise Business Intelligence and Performance Management reports. Your client copy can be downloaded via the client portal, and you may share the report within your organization e.g., distribute it via email or host on your own internal portal. If you have questions about usage and distribution, please let me know.

The analyst team is working on the next reports, including Financial Consolidation and Close Management (new!), due for publication this month, as well as the Sales Performance Management and Analytical Platforms (new!) slated for November.

Research Insights

The Research Insights series is our thought leadership covering a wide array of topics to help keep you abreast of key developments in the industry.

Here are some titles that have recently been released:

  • How Data Latency Can Impact Decision Latency
  • Align Drivers of BI Achievement with BI Objectives
  • How Company Size and BI Budgets Relate to SI and Consultant Selection and Use

Upcoming topics will cover Natural Language Analytics, Guided Analytics, and BI and Analytics in Healthcare.

If you have elected to include these in your subscription, you will see the full list of completed Research Insights posted on the portal and you can download and leverage them within your organization.

As a reminder, these make excellent fulfillment pieces for your campaigns. You may leverage your subscription units to distribute any of the Research Insights. Contact me for details.

I’ve been reaching out to schedule meetings with you to share our 2022 agenda and programs. If we’ve not yet set a time to connect, please let me know some available dates/times.
