STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 847 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which SAS Visual Analytics improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 847 standard requirements:

  1. Will the big data cloud environment support scale-out, shared-nothing massively parallel processing, storage optimization, dynamic query optimization, and mixed workload management better than alternative deployment models (e.g., on-premises appliances, software on commodity hardware)?

  2. Self-service analysis is meaningless unless users can trust that the data comes from an approved source and is up to date. Does your BI solution create a strong partnership with IT to ensure that data, whether from extracts or live connections, is 100-percent accurate?

  3. Will it allow users to retrieve their data and their application artifacts and to have strong assurance that the cloud service provider will delete all copies and not retain any materials belonging to the cloud service customer after an agreed period?

  4. What are the potential areas of conflict that can arise between organisations IT and marketing functions around the deployment and use of business intelligence and data analytics software services and whats the best way to resolve them?

  5. How likely is it that a particular approach will reduce the cost of deploying and managing Big Data analytics and maximize the productivity and efficiency of IT operations over the deployments expected useful life?

  6. Consideration for forming a BICC is driven by a need and urgency for change, specifically around the ability to meet business demand for better decisions using BI technology. Who is feeling the pain?

  7. In what manner and under which conditions is it feasible to apply effective control measures to Big Data implementations and gain increased certainty over the validity of data analytics outcomes?

  8. Do you have mature business intelligence environments that can integrate fraud analytics within your current environment to take advantage of processes and architecture that are already in place?

  9. Data visualization effectiveness; What are the Bi platform advanced capabilities in terms of allowing business users to efficiently and effectively visualize data sets and act on the results?

  10. How do we protect the assured, proper, and consistent collection, processing, communication, use and disposition of personally identifiable information in the relation to cloud services?
