Description Course Outline Exam Details
 

The term Business Intelligence is not well understood in the industry and is used inconsistently by many IT and business professionals alike. Although the term was defined in the mid 1990’s, the meaning of Business Intelligence continues to evolve as practitioners learn more about its capabilities and challenges.

This online training course introduces a “holistic” view of Business Intelligence and presents it as a complex system composed of many sub-systems that must be aligned and work together to produce the desired business results. The real success of BI within an organization can only be achieved if a holistic understanding is developed that shapes how the various components are designed and implemented. In addition to the extensive overview, the course makes Business Intelligence real and tangible by illustrating the concepts, principles, and practices using a detailed case study.

Reviewer: Ray Bond  
I would not necessarily recommend any course changes. However, I would like to see an appendix added for additional reading material that might relate the course contents in a meaningful way.

Reviewer: Victor Lanch  
Good. Mark is clear and concise with his articulation of BI in general.  Slides are relatively easy to follow and the walk through of each slide was easily understood. Thank you again.  Now to sit the exam.

Course review October 18, 2011
Reviewer: Sean Keesler from United States  
Well, that was like eating my vegetables when I wanted to eat a steak. It was good for me but I didn't know it until the end. I expected something different, but the course sets the stage for more detailed material that I am sure is to follow. It really got me thinking about the 40,000 foot view of how BI needs to be considered where I work. I was likely going to make the #1 mistake of focusing in on the technology skills and capabilities before making the business case properly. This course helped me reframe my approach.
