Business Intelligence and Data Analytics for the Business Analyst

Big data refers to datasets whose size is beyond the ability of typical database software tools. Data Analytics is the application of software to derive information or meaning from data. Artificial intelligence (AI) the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term is frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from past experience.  In this workshoptwe will discuss what is Big Data and AI.  How they will be applied to the business analysis process.  Both Big Data and AI will impact the six knowledge areas of the BABOK in new ways that are both known and unknown in the current practice of business analysis. We will also explore how Big Data and AI will drive more accurate and actionable business decisions. Lastly, we will show how tools like Power BI and Qlik can be used as tools to support your business analysis efforts. 
Join us for as we collaborate on topics regarding business intelligence.
