Business Information University:Direct Delivery: Putting BI Data in the Hands of Business Users
New tools are making it easier to put business intelligence (BI) data in the hands of end users—if you deploy and manage them properly. In this classroom, BI managers and other IT and business professionals will get guidance on how to use self-service, mobile and dashboard technologies to deliver data to business users in a timely and user-friendly way that lets them make maximum use of the information.
In a webcast, consultant Rick Sherman provides advice on managing deployments of self-service BI software that gives business users more control over the business intelligence process. In a podcast Q&A, Forrester Research analysts Boris Evelson and Mike Facemire discuss what to do, and what not to do, in designing, deploying and managing mobile BI applications. And an article written by consultant Brian Jordan offers tips on designing effective BI dashboards that don't overwhelm business users with unnecessary and irrelevant information.
