Data Warehouse Applications in Business Learning:-03 days

What are Business intelligence and Data Warehouse? In one sentence “Business Intelligence” can be defined as “ Data based Decisions”. Decisions based on data provide a competitive edge to today's cognizance of the fact that this filed is growing very rapidly, many large domestic IT consultancy and service companies have already established a seperate “BI” practice. BI systems needs data and techniques of storing and analyzing the same. Today in many organisations, a large amount of data is already available from various operational systems. It contains exteremely valuable information. The challenge is to get the large amount of clean data in a standard form from various operational systems and store it in an appropriate structure that is amenable for fast response to various queries. One needs to design, build and maintain Data warehouse for the same Objectives of the Workshop This program is designed to provide comprehensive discussions on designing and building of Data Warehousing as well as OLAP applications.Demonstrations will be made as well as hands on experience imparted to participants to design and build Data Warehousing.
