This two-day seminar is intended for business sponsors, BI/DW managers, IT architects who have already built a BI system and now need to embed BI and analytics into Web sites, applications and processes to empower employees, business partners, suppliers and customers to achieve ‘always on’ business optimisation, dynamic planning and ‘active’ management of business performance.

It provides a roadmap and methodology to creating the right-time intelligent enterprise by using methodologies and new technologies to manage a business at both strategic and operational levels. It looks at how technologies like CEP, stream processing, predictive analytics, alerts, automated recommendations and automated decision management can be integrated with operational business processes and linked to dashboards and corporate performance management technologies such as scorecards as part of a top-to-bottom continuous business performance improvement program.

The seminar takes an in-depth look at the technologies and methodologies needed to integrate BI into every day business process operations and make it available from any device.
