Description

This is an introductory course for freshers / beginners / non-technical folks who want to take a sneak peek into the working of a Business Intelligence project and understand different career options and associated responsibilities for the same. This course is about how a BI project is executed, what are the different layers of a BI architecture, and which career track one can choose to work on based on your areas of interest in a BI project. This course is not meant to be a exhaustive reference of each and every tool and technology available in the Business Intelligence field. 

This is a fully diagram guided course and focused on BI architecture majorly. This course also lists some industry leading tools and technologies from different vendors that fit into different areas of a BI project.

The course has three major sections - BI Project Lifecycle, BI Architecture and BI Career Tracks. The course does not come with any practice tests or do-it-yourself kind of exercises. But if you have a career or technical question related to this course, I would be able to help the students with the same.

Who is the target audience?
  • Students who are non-technical and curious about how to start a career in Business Intelligence and Analytics should take this course
  • Students who are taking their starting steps out of college in the field of Business Intelligence and Analytics should take this course
  • Students who are from a different technical domain and wants to hear a 14-year experienced architect's advise to make a career in BI and Analytics should take this course
