TDWI's Best of Business Intelligence, Volume 11

February 12, 2014


Before it was called BI, the art of science and data-based decision making was often referred to as “decision support.” And for a field beginning with such an unpretentious moniker, the power and size of BI is not just obvious, but just beginning.

Indeed, the boom of big data and data warehousing had no greater year than 2013. Make sure you're up to speed on all that's transpired.

TDWI's Best of Business Intelligence offers:

  • Analysis of notable BI and DW trends, including a downpour of cloud-related offerings, agile architecture in the office place, and the future of consumer-centric retail
  • Excerpt from a TDWI Best Practices Report: “Implementation Practices for Better Decisions”
  • An insider’s guide to the new data warehouse at Facebook from the TDWI Chicago World Conference keynote speaker, Ken Rudin. Plus, Stephen Swoyer’s article “Inside Facebook’s Relational Platform” digs into the hows and whys of enhancing Hadoop with relational data
  • Plus much more from TDWI’s publications and research
