Data Governance Drives Effective Analytics

We recently came across Aberdeen’s report “Nimble IT and the Data Layer: The Lynchpin of Analytical Success,” which summarizes survey results of data management professionals and analytics users.  The report explores the relationship between IT environments and decision-making by business users. Interestingly, Aberdeen found that something called a “nimble IT” environment empowers line-of-business users to make better decisions and improve company performance.

PHEMI was pleased to contribute to a recent Forrester report Vendor

By analyzing vast quantities of genomic data, clinical records, and healthcare business intelligence, researchers can discover new targeted therapies, identify disease risk factors, improve hospital operations and much more. But all of that depends on one basic premise: more people (clinicians, researchers, analysts) having access to much more information. And that’s far from the reality today. The biggest issue: fragmented data. In most healthcare organizations, data is spread out across multiple servers, databases,
