Last month Trillium sponsored and spoke at a TDWI webinar entitled “Engaging the Business: Agile, Collaborative Approaches to Data Usability” (recording available here.) The webinar explored the need to build collaboration between IT and the line-of-business (LOB) in terms of data usage, given the increased availability of tools that empower the LOB to operate independent of IT. In the past, the LOB was compelled to work with IT because they needed the technical skills. Now, greater portions of the work can be done by the LOB itself, often with the use of the Cloud models that eliminate infrastructure requirements.
