The Marriage of BI and Big Data—Business unIntelligence

Register below to view the webinar on-demand


As big data and business analytics become the norm, companies with existing data warehouse architectures are worrying how these new approaches relate to traditional BI and what must be done to implement new analytic systems. Unfortunately, much current advice focuses on what’s new rather than what to do to get from current systems to fully integrated big data and analytics and reap the clear benefits. What is needed is a new information architecture that combines the best of current data warehousing approaches and facilitates integration of what is new. This webinar is based on Barry Devlin's new book Business unIntelligence - Insight and Innovation Beyond Analytics and Big Data and will cover:

  • Business drivers and results of the emerging biz-tech ecosystem
  • Modern conceptual and logical architectures for information, process and people
  • Positioning of all forms of business analytics and big data

Duration: 60 minutes (including audience Q&A)
