About the Webinar

Digital transformation happens every day, whether companies like it or not. Strategic transformation is the ideal scenario, but it requires lots of research, planning, orchestration, and process awareness, plus one mission-critical component: data! Many business processes that get transformed these days require data from multiple sources, both on-prem and in the cloud. Whether you are designing or deploying applications, this presents challenges to traditional methodologies.

Register for this DM Radio Deep Dive webinar to hear Bloor Group CEO Eric Kavanagh explain why data should drive the digital transformation process, from design through production. He’ll be joined by Tony Fisher and Craig Chaplin of Simba, a Magnitude company, who will share their insights about the rapidly changing data landscape, and what implications that has on the process of digital transformation. They’ll show how today’s most cutting-edge organizations are weaving together diverse data sources to create very powerful, highly focused business applications including BI, analytics, ETL and data preparation applications.
