New Gartner Report Sheds Light on Communicating the Value of Data and Analytics in the Boardroom

In the new report from Gartner, “How to Communicate the Business Value of Data and Analytics to the Board”, technical business leaders will find a deep-dive into the key challenges and recommendations they need to build a case for data and analytics initiatives.


Those in the position of defending data and analytics decisions and strategies to the board are no stranger to the challenges that can entail. In fact, According to Gartner, “Gartner has found that only 15% of D&A strategies have concrete metrics of success. Meanwhile, 85% do not measure any specific key performance indicators (KPIs), or mention generalities such as “better decision making” or “having the right information at the right time for the right people in the right way.” This is insufficient.”


However, there are way to surmount these kinds of challenges and successfully communicate the data and analytics vision leaders have for their organizations.
