IT 6713 Business Intelligence
This course discusses the concepts, technologies, processes, and applications of business intelligence. Student will go through the complete business intelligence process of data model design, data integration, data analysis, and reporting, in a specific application domain.
Business intelligence systems have been widely adopted and implemented in todayâ€™s enterprise environments due to growing amount of data and increasing need for data analytical processing. The IT4153/6733 course focuses more on traditional transactional database administration but misses some parts of data modeling, analysis, and reporting. This course is aimed to complement that by focusing analytical processing technologies and applications.
"Kennesaw State University professor Jack Zhengâ€™s concise, content-rich introduction to BI may be the best free comprehensive intro Iâ€™ve seen online. Youâ€™re basically getting the first-day lecture from one of his college courses. If you were to break the courseâ€™s cost down by classes, youâ€™d probably be getting about $1-200 dollarsâ€™ worth of information, just by clicking above."
