So you have got the coveted ticket and waiting with bated breath to board the grandeur-filled digital analytics train. What we mean is that you have already deployed an analytics tool and are now about to flag off your data-driven journey. But, clouds of apprehension may still be floating in your mind; you are skeptical about whether the train will hit the destination. To say it with a different combination of words, will you get the results you want to achieve by this type of simple deploy-it-and-then-forget-it approach? Well, this can help you to some extent. However, with increasing complexities in business and the data universe in an infinitely expanding mode, your situation demands something highly well-structured. You need an analytics center.
An analytics center is a special organization within an enterprise to foster the development of analytical infrastructure, put in place a strong collaborative environment, garner insights, and manage best practices related to analytics for the attainment of holistic business growth. It’s the strategic hub of all things analytics. You can say it’s a centralized competence-building exercise around analytics. Diverse components of the business ecosystem—people, processes, culture, and technology—get seamlessly integrated into a target-oriented whole under the aegis of the analytics center.
Thus far we have given you a definition of the analytics center and raved over this inclusive arrangement, but not elaborated on the top tangible benefits you will extract from establishing one. So, here we go:
- Promoting adoption and use of analytics among the business users: In recent years, intuitive self-service BI solutions have gained huge popularity because they empower the business side of the enterprise to serve their analytical purposes to a greater degree without remaining at the mercy of IT. An analytics center can take this trend several steps forward.
- Cost reduction: The old school style of using analytics within silos gives rise to redundant functions, thereby pushing costs up. These costs can be effectively stamped out once your integrated analytics center is up and running.
- Standardization: Unless everybody follows a common framework or set of guidelines, conflict is inevitable. In its capacity as an overseer of analytical activities, the center can bring analytics cohesiveness throughout the enterprise.
- Marked improvement in data management, quality, and reporting: This is an extension of the previous point. As enterprise-wide uniformity becomes the new normal and data noise gets filtered out due to razor-sharp management, only quality data is left for analysis. Hence, better reporting is possible.
- Rolling the wheels of innovation: Though the analytics center spearheads an enterprise into a standardized realm, yet innovation is not something out of bounds. It happens by way of continuous exploration of new analytic hypotheses and data sources.
- A better relationship between business and IT: From today’s perspective, it’s even more detrimental to an enterprise if the business side and IT side move on separate ways. Disagreement between these two will create a hotbed of shadow IT issues. The center rules this out and other unpleasant possibilities by letting business and IT go hand in hand on the same track.
