How Business Analysts Meet Their Goals with Orion’s EIIG
A business analyst is tasked with improving processes, products, services, and software through data analysis. They have to quickly assess processes, determine requirements, and deliver data-driven recommendations and reports to executives and stakeholders. Business analysts explain to business leaders how data-driven changes to processes, products, services, software, and hardware can improve efficiencies and add value.
A business analysts day to day tasks include:
Budgeting and forecasting
Planning and monitoring
Since business analysts are data-driven, they need to understand how much they can trust the data presented to them. In any organization, the availability, quality, and timeliness can vary significantly. Business analysts thus need a clear picture of where their data comes from, how much to trust it, and which data is outdated or redundant. Furthermore, they must determine and then explain how the data they are presenting relates to management needs.
Presently, many business analysts just do not have access to this information, leading to reports based on outdated or flat-out erroneous data. They need a tool that ensures they use accurate and timely data.
Orion Governance’s Enterprise Information Intelligence Graph (EIIG) solves this problem. EIIG ingests metadata from 70+ technology sources without requiring any coding. It weaves the metadata into a knowledge graph, creating a catalog with detailed lineage and capabilities like impact analysis. It relates technical assets to business terms and builds a self-defined data fabric on the basis of the facts of the data assets it discovers. The result is a living, breathing map of information flow in near real-time.
