General Information

Length and Learning Modes: 2 days

Gathering and analyzing requirements for BI projects have several components that are unique on IT projects. One of the complexities includes uncovering and defining multiple dimensions of information that clients want to see reported. Another challenge is to make data flexible enough to allow as-yet unknown querying and “mining.” Finally, the promise of BI involves using it to help make future predictions and support good decision-making.

For these reasons and more, analyzing and documenting BI requirements create the need for special knowledge and skills. This course addresses those special knowledge areas and helps build the skills of people who work on defining BI requirements. By learning a combination of industry best practices and practical approaches, attendees will improve their BI project success.
