SUGI 21 Information Systems Panel Discussion
To replace a paper presentation that had to be canceled, we would like to hold a
panel /audience discussion on the topic of End User Access to Information. It
will take place at 8:00 on Monday morning, March 11 in Continental Ballroom A.
We are looking for panelists and audience participants. Please read on for a
more detailed description of the topic.
Transforming the data in your warehouse into useable information and delivering
it to the decision makers are the tasks of Information Systems. You have to
balance ease of access and flexibility of reporting. Bridging the gap between
data and information are a variety of tools, homegrown or canned pre-written
systems, and different ways of organizing people (Information Centers, etc.).
We would like to hear from anyone who has experience approaching the problem of
information delivery, especially if you can relate the actual consequences of
decisions that have been made in the real world.
If you would like to be on the panel, please contact me. I would like to have a
meeting of panelists on Sunday afternoon, March 10, around 3:30 in Room 4B,
right after the speakers meeting for Information Systems.
If you have any interest in this topic as an audience participant, please feel
free to send me suggested questions for the panelists.
I have a real interest in this topic. My generic take is that Data Warehouses
are OK if your job is to store data efficiently, but if you need to get
information back out what you need is a Data Retail Store. But how do you do
that most cost effectively? Come to the discussion and find out what others
know or share your experiences.
