Successfully implementing Auto Insights within your organisation is about more than merely deploying software. It also encompasses executive sponsorship, data curation and above all, the end user engagement necessary to democratise data within your organisation.
We have identified 5 key roles that need to be fulfilled in order to maximise the potential for a successful implementation of Auto Insights. An overview of responsibilities for each role, together with an outline of why this role is important, is set out below:
The Budget Holder is responsible for ultimately making the decision whether to invest in purchasing Auto Insights for use within his or her organisation. They also have responsibility for providing overall vision, acting as the end point for escalation and signing off on initial and expansion use cases.
It is important for the budget holder to be kept aware of key milestones during the implementation process so that they can see the value added to the organisation and influence progress from an Executive level if necessary.
The Business Sponsor acts as the representative voice for organisation’s business users. They are responsible for providing input and feedback from a business user perspective.
The Business Sponsor’s involvement during implementation is important as they provide context around the typical questions asked by business users, defines the problem statement for the initial use case, and determines the success criteria for the use case.
The Project Manager is responsible for working closely with the Auto Insights Client Engagement team to ensure that delivery of the project is on track and that implementation is delivered according to schedule. They act as the first point of escalation for both analyst and business users.
The Data Champion has an innate understanding of the data being used for the initial use case. They have responsibility for overseeing the necessary data cleansing and transformation prior to data ingestion in Auto Insights, reconciling data in Auto Insights with existing reporting processes / BI tools, and helping to establish an ongoing process for data refresh.
The Systems Architect plays a particularly important role in organisations opting for on-premise deployment. They are responsible for liaising with Auto Insights' deployment team during installation, configuration and ongoing maintenance of Auto Insights.
For companies opting for cloud deployment, as well as on-premise the Systems Architect is responsible for establishing a direct database connection to Auto Insights, which is necessary for automated data refreshes.
The Systems Architect plays an important role in providing technical support and ensuring that implementation is carried out in compliance with organisational security policies.
