Business Analytics Best Practices


Transforming information into action – while minimizing time and cost – is the goal of every business analytics (BA) initiative. Without understanding how an optimized BA platform can best serve the organization, significant time and expense can be wasted “reinventing the wheel,” when BA platform structures, processes and best practices have become a well-defined body of knowledge and experience.

The Business Analytics course provides an overview of the reporting and analytics platform: components, processes and best practices for business and IT users.

C-level Operations and IT executives, strategic business unit (SBU) executives, Business Analysts, Subject Matter Experts, and DW Team members.
