Validating Your BI/DW Direction

Building a Responsive BI Organization

With multiplying data volumes and complexity, limited resources, and new technologies, it can be hard to gauge whether your business intelligence (BI) program is on the right track to meet changing business objectives. Does your team have the skills and knowledge it needs to make the most of your information assets? Is your BI program scalable and flexible, and is it headed in the right direction?

At the TDWI World Conference in Chicago, we’ll provide essential BI/DW courses and go beyond to discuss evolving technologies such as Hadoop, MapReduce, big data analytics, and social media. We’ll also cover the important topics people are working on today, including data quality, data governance, ETL, and agile development.

We Promise to Deliver

  • Six days of courses covering a wide range of BI/DW topics, including BI essentials, business analytics, data analysis and design, data asset management, and leadership and management
  • Keynote presentations from Shawn Rogers (Vice President, Research for BI and DW, Enterprise Management Associates) and Michael Gonzales (Independent Consultant)
  • An exhibit hall full of tools and solutions for your BI/DW needs
  • BI/DW certification prep courses and exams

Validate your BI/DW direction—for your enterprise and for your own career. Join us in Chicago to learn more.
