How the Enterprise Data Warehouse is using customer research to inform decision-making and how you can too!

Finance Transformation is coming. We know that the Enterprise Data Warehouse is going to change, but we don’t know if our customers are going to be ready in time or have the tools or resources to adapt. So how do we find out? We ask! We’ll walk you through our most recent research and engagement with our Enterprise Data Warehouse customers, share our findings, our lessons learned, and leave you with some tools you can use to get started on your own customer research journey.

Presented by: Dawn Hemminger, Product Manager for the Enterprise Data Platform, UW Information Technology
