Course Description

This course will introduce students to the tools, techniques and best practices that are used to define and manage business requirements for Business Intelligence projects.

Course Details

Defining business requirements for IT projects can be a challenging process under ideal conditions. The scope of requirements for Business Intelligence (BI) projects can range from enterprise wide strategic programs, to addressing specific reporting needs for a small subset of users in a single department.
