Event Description

"Business Intelligence without the Business is not very Intelligent"

Borrowing from the Agile Manifesto, this presentation addresses the importance of having business stewards and subject matter experts at the table before and during the development of a BI solution. Somewhat contrary to the Agile Manifesto, it also speaks to the value that an enterprise approach to business intelligence adds to individual initiatives.

. . .  at the Philadelphia Business Intelligence User Group

Speaker: Dan Paolini, Chief Information Officer, DBHIDS ( Phila Dept of Behavioral Health and Disabilities )

Daniel J. Paolini is the DBHIDS Chief Information Officer.

He is responsible for leading the data governance, information architecture and business intelligence efforts in support of the department, as well as coordinating information technology efforts department-wide. His primary focus is on collaboration and integration to achieve DBHIDS objectives.

Previously, Paolini served as the Director of the Division of Enterprise Data Services within the New Jersey Office of Information Technology, and led significant initiatives on Recidivism and Crash Analysis.  Responsible for the award-winning YOURMONEY.NJ.GOV and the NJ Big Data Alliance efforts. Paolini co-founded the training firm, DataStar International.

Paolini is an information architecture - thought leader in the areas of data management, information architecture, data integration, system development, technology operations, leadership and planning. He has presented talks at hundreds of events in eight countries. 

His leadership philosophy can be summarized as “Do the right things, for the right reasons, even when no one is looking and especially when others are telling you not to.
