Every organization, both private and public sector, is challenged today to turn data into information and information into impact. This is the age of analytics and data-driven business, but the path from data to value can be complex. The right competencies to acquire, integrate, analyze, and act upon data are essential survival skills.

Everyone who works in the field of BI and analytics, regardless of their role, needs to have a broad understanding of the many connected and interdependent parts of a complex information ecosystem. Business and technical success with BI and analytics requires continuity among all of the components from initial data acquisition to ultimate business impact and vertical cohesion of architectures, technologies, processes, and organizations. Teams are most successful in BI and analytics when they share common understanding and terminology, and when each team member has an understanding of and appreciation for the roles and contributions of all other team members. The Essential Skills for BI and Analytics Professionals Skills workshop is designed to do just that with three days of in-depth, interactive training.
