Presentation: “ROI of BI” by Dr. Bob Conway

Abstract
This presentation will use two DW/BI case studies to show a measurable financial return that far exceeds the initial investment.  These two specific examples will be used to illustrate a general protocol for scoping and managing DW/BI projects to ensure that the value proposition is quantitative and demonstrable. Data warehouse/business intelligence (DW/BI) technology and resources are a multi-million dollar investment for even modest sized companies.  Senior management certainly concedes that timely, reliable information is essential to business operations but are challenged to demonstrate real cost savings or revenue creation directly attributable to DW/BI investment.  In these austere economic times, DW/BI programs are coming under increasing scrutiny to justify their budgets relative to competing investments.

Presentation: “Data Integration Tips & Tricks” by Dr. Bob Conway

Abstract
Data integration is the cornerstone of data warehousing (DW) and master data management (MDM) but has proven to be one of the more difficult technical challenges.  This presentation provides helpful techniques for merging data from disparate functional areas or organizations into a unified semantic data model.  The approach leverages a modular design and metadata-driven methods to provide a durable, extensible data integration tool kit.
