The third and final insight from Jinfo's Research Focus, "Data analytics - ready your information service", discusses how to overcome the "11th hour" request for input into analytics projects.
One of the biggest concerns from information managers with regard to data analytics is the "11th hour" request - because information managers lack visibility into when and where analytics projects are emerging in their organisations.
This environment creates extra expense, delays and sub-optimal data selections... not to mention irritated project stakeholders.
Your best strategy to address this challenge is to cultivate key partnerships and be a good partner yourself.
Potential partnerships can be found in IT departments, analytics or strategy units, business units and even legal and procurement. Your stakeholder map will help you identify the likeliest places for effective partnership.There are no shortcuts to building better visibility into emerging analytics projects. Persistent efforts to align and work with key areas of the business build the foundation you need to become a "must have" rather than an afterthought.
