Business Intelligence and Data Integration for the GIS Professional
Monday, October 23, 2017, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM (Full-Day)

Instructors:
Carl Anderson, GISP, New Light Technologies, Bradenton, FL 
Clare Brown, GISP, Regional Planning Commission, New Orleans, LA

Description:  This workshop covers the general topics of Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Integration (DI) and ways to add a spatial component to BI and DI systems. It will give GIS professionals the knowledge to identify and leverage opportunities to enhance decision support through interaction with existing Business Intelligence frameworks or by implementing a new Business Intelligence framework.

Business Intelligence is the ability of organizations to collect, maintain, and organize data.  BI technologies provide historical, current and predictive views of business operations.  The goal of business intelligence deployments if to support better business decision-making, something that all organizations, especially ones with an enterprise GIS, or ones working towards a full enterprise implementation, can benefit from.  

Data integration involves combining data residing in different sources and providing users with a unified view of these datas.  GIS is a core user of data from multiple sources. During this URISA Certified Workshop, you will learn key ways to integrate data from multiple sources in order to enhance your GIS functionality and leverage the power of external (to GIS) data sources.
