Business Intelligence is about getting better information from your existing data...

    • All companies that utilise IT systems have a wealth of data being collected every day in spreadsheets, systems, databases and so on.
    • But, are companies making use of this data and maximising their potential?
    • How can information from different systems, which are incompatible, be analysed and reported?
    • Business Intelligence puts information in the hands of those that need it, when they need it and how they want it.

You’ll see how it can be implemented on a small scale using data from spreadsheets and csv files. Don’t miss out and reserve your place now.
