This week on Analytics on Fire, I sat down with the godfather of BI Communities and Chief Research Officer of Dell, Shawn Rogers, to discuss a topic that is becoming critical to driving a data-driven culture, your community. Shawn gives us a clear view on what it takes to drive a data-driven culture, as well as how to convince a C-level executive like himself to make the ‘investment’. We have an in-depth conversation on Shawn’s five Cs of BI: Culture, Community, Collaboration, Commitment, and Consistency.
Shawn Rogers is an innovator and pioneer in the BI community. He started the first two BI communities on the web, setting the stage for the more well-known BI thought leaders today. Shawn Co-Founded and sold DM Review Magazine, which is now Information-Management.com and the B-eye-Network, which he later sold to Tech Target. As an internationally recognized strategist, thought leader, speaker, and author, he now works on the vendor side. In this podcast, he will teach you how enterprises can effectively build community, why they should build one, and how to foster a culture to sustain it.
