How BAs Can Use Technology to Implement a Continuous Improvement Plan

Modern Analyst Webinar

When & Where

Thursday, October 10, 2019 @ 10:00
(PST Pacific Standard Time GMT-8:00)



As a Business Analyst you are constantly examining elements of the business. You investigate business systems, evaluate processes to try to improve these systems and create the documentation and business requirements needed so that IT can develop a solution for you. Then you typically wait in the backlog of IT Requests and watch the value of your project fade over time. What if you had another option? Instead of going to IT, you can build an application for capturing, storing and managing data about your business. Newer concepts about software have led to platforms that allow business users to build custom applications with extreme flexibility and speed while still reaping the benefits of standardization, governance and security offered by commercial software products.

When you attend this webinar, you will learn how to:
• Design a data model of your business problem
• Build an application using that model
• Manage User Roles, Reports, Dashboards and more
During the Webinar, Erich Wehrmann, Solutions Consultant at Quick Base, will give you an introduction to the Quick Base platform and demonstrate how to build an application without coding.

Why You Need a Business Glossary Now: Connecting Data to the Language of the Business

Effective alignment between the data captured by the business and the language used by the business is a key to business success. A term may have different meanings for different people based on the context or the interpretation. Misunderstandings caused by incorrect interpretation of business data increase the risk of expensive errors and expose huge business risks. Having a Business Glossary can help to minimize the potential for misinterpretation.

This event will show you how can jump-start the Business Glossary initiative using a template approach. You can save time and money in developing an effective Business Glossary that provides clarification, structure, and content, via a Universal Business Glossary.

• Implementing best practices for defining terms
• Jump-starting the glossary initiative using templates
• Leveraging universal domains
• Connecting the Business Glossary with the Data Dictionary

Executive Guide to Using Process Mining to Succeed in Major Transformations

Executives have unique issues when facing major transformation projects: they are accountable for the business case, the risk is higher, and there is extreme time pressure to achieve business outcomes. The perspective of executives is NOT project-centric; executives must focus on guarding the customer experience throughout the process of transformation and to ensure this is not only maintained but improved.

This session is a practical guide for executive leadership on how mining TRUTH dramatically alters major transformation success rates and magnitude of return. Learning objectives:
1. Compressing project planning timelines and controlling scope
2. Isolating opportunistic benefit
3. Reducing the burden on frontline staff and key subject experts throughout transformation
4. Smoothing the communication burden in reporting errors, delays, system issues, process failure
5. Proving your business case outcomes and harvesting incremental benefit

The Digital Design Professional for Today’s Digital Ecosystem

Today’s innovative digital solutions are driven by technology and disruptive business models. To design a digital solution, you need to consider hardware, software, the physical environment, and the desired business model as well as the people that will use the system. Look for example at a Smart Home solution where light, heating, doors, windows, cameras or smoke and water detectors can be controlled from anywhere (at home or abroad) by different devices like a smart watch, smart phones, or voice-controlled devices like Echo Dot, Google Home or HomePod.

As a Digital Design Professional, you need to know and to understand the capabilities and limits of the available technology, in order to build the best possible digital solution that solves existing problems and meets the needs of the intended users. In short: The Digital Design Professional needs to understand the problem and solution space to create the best solution.

The idea of digital design is to understand “digital” as a material to shape digital solutions, like the way a carpenter understands wood as their material to build solutions. We will show that this understanding significantly improves our ability to design digital solution.

When you attend, you will:
* Understand the relationship between classical materials science and digital design,
* Understand the idea of "DIGITAL" as material to shape a digital solution,
* Learn about the aspects of form, function and quality for the digital solution, and
* Learn how to differentiate between perceivable vs. underlying technology
