The growth in the use of Business Intelligence (BI) in organizations is continuing its dramatic growth. This is because companies recognize the importance of Business Intelligence in reducing costs, increasing revenues, and improving competitiveness. At the same time, only a small fraction of Business users in organizations are actually using Business Intelligence in their daily jobs. This is because Business Intelligence has been used primarily to date by Business and data analysts who are familiar with the data, and with the BI tools used for accessing and analyzing that data. Less skilled information workers, who form the majority of Business users in an organization, find current BI and Data Warehousing applications too difficult to use for driving day-to-day operational decisions.

There are many vendor initiatives aimed at improving the usability of the Business Intelligence environment. Existing BI and data warehousing vendors are developing some of these solutions, whereas others come from innovative and smaller start-up companies. This international Conference will provide you with the latest information on developments in the fields of Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing. It will not only update you on the latest developments, but also explain how these developments can be deployed to a broader set of information workers.

Topics that will be covered include:

• Decision Intelligence: BI for the Information Worker
• Do We Still Need a Data Warehouse?
• Insight Beyond Business Intelligence
• Finding What You Don’t Know: Information Discovery
• Instant Decision Making: BAM, CEP, or Real-Time BI
• How Healthy is Your BI System: Assessing its Strengths and Risks
