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.
