Mashups vs Smashups: Responsible Mashups as Part of a Corporate Analytics Strategy


The Canadian Economic Squeeze has risen its ugly head. In challenging economic times, often the large Strategic projects are axed. Tightened budgets unable to sustain the large Analytics Projects give rise to small tactical projects, such as Personal BI and Self-Serve Analytics. A class of tool focused on self-serve analytics combining ease of use with powerful functionality supported by gorgeous graphics and mobile platform support has evolved, and are enjoying rapid adoption. However, often these tools leverage (or encourage!) mashed-up spreadsheets, or worse, Spreadmarts as their primary data source. This talk will discuss the Mashup trend and provide pragmatic advice and recommendations to help you contribute to the continued evolution of the management and governance of data as an asset while providing Business users architecturally-sound solutions that support the longer term Analytics Strategy.
