Companies that build data warehouses and use business intelligence for decision-making ultimately save money and increase profit. In addition, initiatives ranging from supply chain integration to compliance with government-mandated reporting requirements (such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA) depend on well-designed data warehouse architecture. This specialized studies program introduces you to the main components of a data warehouse for business intelligence applications. Learn how a data warehouse fits into the overall strategy of a complex enterprise, how to develop data models useful for business intelligence, and how to combine data from disparate sources into a single database that comprises the core of your data warehouse. Explore how to define and specify useful management reports from warehouse data.
Who Should Enroll
Data systems modelers, database administrators, data architects, IT managers, business analysts, CIOs, and others who need to take data from different databases or data sources and combine them into a single repository that can be used to produce executive dashboards, generate summary reports, and glean “hidden” information from business databases. Those who provide the requests for data in order to analyze trends and systems should also attend.
