Strategic Business Intelligence BI

Strategic Business Intelligence – Practical Training to Move BI toward ROI.

To successfully compete in today’s global business environment an organization must continuously monitor, recognize and understand every aspect and every issue of its operations, its industry and the overall business environment.

Setting up a business intelligence within an organization takes more than just installing the technology.

A successful BI programme involves a set of interlaced business concepts and frameworks designed to improve the fact-based business decision-making process.

This course focuses on the business aspects of designing and implementing a BI programme rather than looking at BI from the information technology aspect.

The focus of business intelligence is the transformation of data into value-added information: where to source it, how to integrate it, and how to enhance and deliver it as analytic insight to support business decision making.

Effective implementation of a Business Intelligence (BI) program results in better business decisions and increased success in achieving goals.

In this BI training course, you will learn how to identify the maturity level of your BI solution, and articulate critical elements of your answer to maximizing your organization’s business opportunities.

The facilitator will work with you through a case study in this hands-on training, and you will be able to re-apply the template as soon as you’re back at work.

This program will introduce Business Intelligence (BI), hands-on, to allow you to clean, normalize, and interpret large volumes of data. You will be able to establish historical relationships, analyze the current situation and predict future strategies.

The application of BI is borderless, covering operational, tactical and strategic business decisions. It spans all departments and cascades down to all users who perform data cleansing, reporting, analysis, modeling, integration, and automation.
