The BI market has changed. The era of “one size fits all” BI tools and complex enterprise BI stacks is ending, shaken up by new technologies that give analysts and end users new capabilities. The goal of “information for everyone” is more achievable than it was in the past, but it comes with trade-offs like complexity, changes to data architecture, and different operational environments.
This course will provide a framework for data and analysis tools to help identify gaps and choose new tools. The session will review some of the latest innovations and tools that offer new capabilities and new ways of using data. Topics include data discovery and exploration; the role of search in both the BI front end and as an engine behind tools; collaboration in BI environments; streaming data and real-time monitoring; cloud and SaaS deployment; graph and network analysis; and text analytics. The course will also include various live demos.
