IT, excluded from digital transformation?
Finally, in the face of massive expectations, it does not always provide the right answer. Its use.
This centralized governance is not adapted to the new situation: data management is the business of several stakeholders rather than that of a single specialist. The Chief Data Officer (22%), the Chief Financial Officer (22%) and the Chief Marketing Officer (14%). It says the CDO are involved in 42% of the boxes, etc.
These new roles need everything right away. Giving these business users the ability to be autonomous, and take control of data with intuitive tools to collect, optimize, analyze and integrate it in order to extract value.

Alternatively, if IT validates the data files between the different employees of a department by anonymizing confidential information and automates their injection into Netsuite without human manipulation-but that creates more work for IT.

Governed self-service, a must-have for IT departments

The trades immediately access the reliable sources of data, clean, transform, enrich and share them with simple tools to use. IT provides self-service access and clean-up of data without compromising compliance. It propagates a single version of the truth in the business, encouraging the exploitation of business expertise where it is and extending it to the entire enterprise.
A new IT - Business collaboration is established on the basis of governed, self - service, avoids the eternal "ping - pong" over dataset between data analyst and IT, Of the digital transformation.
