Why Choose a TDWI Conference
The TDWI Difference
In-depth education from top instructors
Unlike other conferences, TDWI offers primarily full- and half-day courses taught by practitioners with real-world experience. The sessions at a TDWI conference are classes, not presentations, and the session leaders are not just speakers—they're teachers. This is real education where you’ll interact with the most knowledgeable and experienced instructors in the industry.
TDWI goes to great lengths to guarantee that our courses provide objective, vendor-neutral information. All course topics and instructors are carefully selected to deliver the most timely and unbiased instruction available.
Professional development and certification
TDWI offers a variety of professional development opportunities, from classroom training to the Certified Business Intelligence Professional (CBIP) program, recognized as the most meaningful credential in the industry.
Broad range of course offerings
From courses that cover essential skills and concepts for those new to the industry, to courses on advanced topics for experienced professionals, TDWI offers classes that are appropriate for every member of your team, no matter what experience level.
Both business and technical education
TDWI recognizes that business intelligence interweaves business and technology in ways we’ve never before experienced, and we select classes that achieve the right balance of business and technical topics. TDWI conferences offer opportunities for business people to increase their knowledge of technology and for technical people to increase their business literacy.
Latest product and technology information
TDWI conferences feature a manageable and highly regulated exhibit hall where attendees can get product information with minimum hype and hassle. For more in-depth product information, choose from classes that review the latest vendor technologies.
