October 2022 Newsletter

Happy Fall! Here is a summary of all the recent activity at Dresner Advisory.

Market Studies
We published both the Small and MidSized Enterprise Business Intelligence and Performance Management reports last month.

Our next reports will be Financial Consolidation and Close Management, scheduled for October 17, and Sales Performance Management, slated for October 31.

We also posted both the BI and EPM Vendor Insights libraries to the portal, for clients who have included them in their subscription.

If you have questions on your Vendor Insights or would like to discuss adding these to your subscription for promotional or competitive purposes, let me know and I’ll arrange a call.
Research Insights
Research Insights are our thought leadership reports covering a wide range of topics to help keep you informed of key developments in the industry.
Here are some recently released titles:
  – In Uncertain Times, Update and Leverage EPM to Build Resilience and Increase Flexibility
  – To Become a DataCentric Organization, Build a Balanced ADIODI Perspective
  – To Improve BI Outcomes, Make EPM a Strategic Part of a Data Leaders Product Portfolio
  – Establish Data Leaders for BI Budget Success
Future Research Insights will cover Healthcare and BI, Data Catalog, ADI, ODI and the HyperDecisive Maturity Model, Data Literacy, and DataDriven Decision Making.

Your client copies of the research can be viewed and downloaded via the client portal. If you have questions about usage and distribution, or need help accessing the portal please let me know.
MidYear Data Collection
End user data collection is going strong. We are reaching out to the Dresner end user community for their input and encourage you to share your unique link to the end user survey with your customer base. We’ve found that direct outreach obtains the best results. It’s also helpful to follow up with customers and remind them that they
will receive complimentary research for their participation.

The midyear program covers Analytical Data Infrastructure, Embedded BI, Data Engineering, Workforce Planning and Analysis, and Supply Chain Planning and Analysis. If you are an ADI vendor, please encourage customers to rate you in that section of the survey.

Please email Michelle if you need us to resend your link or have questions on the process. We appreciate your efforts!

Real Business Intelligence Conference
Many of you have asked about our plans for the annual Real Business Intelligence Conference. We have updated the conference format, and Real BI is now a oneday event that will occur three times per year.
The first session will be on Thursday, December 8 th , from 10:00 AM 4:00 PM Eastern. It will feature presentations from the Dresner team of analysts, our Data Leader Community, and a keynote by Valerie Logan, Founder and CEO of The Data Lodge. More information will be available after our formal launch, scheduled for midmonth.

I’ve begun to reach out to schedule meetings with you to share our agenda and programs for 2023. If we’ve not yet set a time to connect, please let me know some available dates/times.
