With the trend towards advanced analytics, increased data volumes and decreased latency requirements come the challenges of uncertain and volatile schemas, managing continuously expanding data volumes, and demand for faster delivery cycles. Advances in hardware and software are reinventing BI and data management, giving us the ability to step up to these challenges. This course is designed to help you understand the new world of BI and how to deploy changing technologies to reinvent your BI program. Come prepared to challenge your organization’s beliefs about best practices for data delivery, design, and management. We’ll seek opportunities to modernize and advance your BI program in three areas:
  1. Getting more value from existing data
  2. Managing exceptional and accelerating data growth
  3. Achieving faster development cycles without compromising capabilities

You will learn:

  • About new technologies and emerging organizational practices to address new challenges and requirements
  • Aspects of new analytic databases and how they can be deployed
  • Advanced analytical tools and techniques and how to support them
  • Options to address growth, lower latency requirements, and resolve performance problems
  • Alternatives to manage changing requirements including data virtualization, NoSQL, and the cloud
