Bridging the Chasm: BI Theory vs. Practice
By Bill Pearson
(Show Details)  

       

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014, 1:00 PM Eastern


Webcast Overview
 

According to research compiled by Gartner from discussions with many BI clients, a substantial disparity exists, in the implementation of BI, between theory (standard approaches, promises, claims and expectations) and practice (shortfalls, compromises and other realities). In this session, taken from the SSWUG.org Summer Camp, Business Intelligence Architect and Microsoft MVP Bill Pearson leads a dialog within which we gain an understanding of the general types of discrepancies between the “ideal” approach to BI and the compromised reality that a large number of organizations experience. We’ll then share and class experiences as a group, and discuss ways to avoid these discrepancies in future projects.

Webcast Overview
 

This presentation is specifically for professionals who are ready to succeed.

In March of 2014 – I attended the TISQA 2014 Technical Conference. It was a great event and had several tracks discussing the future of the IT industry in general. The unanimous consensus was that IT is changing.

This discussion starts where that conference left off. We’re taking that next step from the future of the IT Industry in general – to your individual career path in IT. If IT is changing, what does that mean for our professional and career advancement in this field? What does our career paths look like? And what do we have to look forward to in advancement and promotion opportunities?

Although test professional examples are used in this presentation; the career strategy and concepts work for developers, business analysts, program managers and many other IT roles.
