A newly published International Data Corporation (IDC) report shows that there is a link between the levels of collaboration among IT, line-of-business (LOB) and analytics groups and the success of big data and analytics (BDA) projects.
This research also found that there are differences in the perception of the level of collaboration among IT, LOB and analytics groups. Of those surveyed, 57% of respondents from LOBs say that there is a high level of collaboration with IT to achieve desired BDA outcomes, while 75% of respondents from IT say the same.
Additionally, respondents believe there is a low level of extensive collaboration among IT, LOBs and analytics. Only 21% of the LOB respondents rated their collaboration with IT and analytics colleagues as extensive, and only 23% of the analytics group participants rated their collaboration with IT and LOB colleagues as extensive.
"Many line of business and analytics groups pride themselves on their ability to bypass IT to fulfill their own needs for data access and analysis. But there is a fine line between data and analytics democracy and anarchy," says Dan Vesset, Program Vice President of Big Data and Analytics at IDC. "Improved collaboration among all stakeholders can help mitigate risks and improve outcomes of BDA projects."
This IDC study, Collaboration in the Age of Big Data (IDC #247729), presents findings from IDC’s 2013 Big Data and Analytics Benchmark Survey, recent end-user research about the extent of collaboration among line-of-business, analytics, and information technology employees and groups, as well as the impact that this collaboration has on the success of big data and business analytics projects.
