Webcast: Social Media and the Enterprise Business Intelligence/Analytics Connection


Join Seth Grimes, business intelligence and decision systems expert, for this web seminar.  You'll hear Seth discuss how social networks – our connections across social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn – and the messages we exchange – status updates, retweets, videos, e-mail, blogs – contain immense business value for marketing, customer experience, product design, quality, service planning and provisioning, compliance and fraud.

Seth will explain why mainstream BI, designed to operate on transactional and operational data maintained in enterprise data warehouses and analytical databases, is ill-equipped to deal with the torrent of enterprise-relevant social information. Fortunately, tools are evolving that will enable enterprises to:

  • Bring social data to enterprise analyses,
  • Permit social sharing of business intelligence (BI) and networked, collaborative business intelligence
  • Expose enterprise data resources for community and partner use.
  • View this web seminar to learn how business intelligence and analytics are adapting to a social world, creating competitive advantage for enterprises that embrace the social business intelligence vision.
