Business Information University: New Trends and Best Practices in BI Project Management


Business intelligence systems can provide competitive advantages, valuable business insights and substantial financial returns -- if they're well-designed and properly managed. But without a firm grasp on the project management process, BI programs can quickly go off-track. In this virtual classroom, BI and IT managers and business executives involved in funding BI initiatives will find insight and advice on managing successful deployments and overcoming the challenges of today's BI environments. In a webcast presentation, consultant David Loshin offers guidance on incorporating self-service, mobile and collaborative tools into BI processes. In a companion podcast Q&A, Loshin discusses the pros and cons of setting up a central team to oversee BI management throughout an organization. And in an article, consultant Rick Sherman details common design and deployment misconceptions that can reduce the returns on BI investments.
