Join an exclusive Ardoq Webinar featuring
Simplify Your EA With Context And Automation
with Gordon Barnett, Forrester Principal Analyst
03 April 2019
2 PM GMT+1 (London) ---- 3 PM GMT +2 (Oslo) ----- 9 AM EDT (Boston)
During this webinar, our top EA Analysts and experts will reveal how democratized access to Data-Driven and model agnostic New EA drive business success. To succeed today, businesses must harness digital assets and ecosystems to continually improve customer outcomes and increase operational agility. Digital businesses thrive when they enable data-driven insight to drive operational and strategic decisions, informed by a deep understanding of their organizational capabilities and technology assets.
As a key enabler, data-driven New EA focusing on context and automation is becoming critical to success.
EA and non-EA pros agree on value of democratized data but disagree on their ability to activate it.
Poor user access to data harms digital business, but technical and strategic barriers limit EA’s ability to fix issues.
As EAs pivot their strategies around broader business goals, non-EA users can help identify the tools needed.
