TDWI San Diego is pleased to announce another double-header:

“ROI of BI" and "Data Integration Tips & Tricks"

Presented by Dr. Bob Conway 

Industry Trainer, Consultant and Thought Leader

Dr. Bob Conway is exceptional at framing sophisticated topics in relatable and practical terms. Join us as he talks about two key areas that many of us struggle with in the BI/DW space:

ROI of BI - Measuring the Value of Business Intelligence - This presentation will use two DW/BI case studies to show a measurable financial return that far exceeds the initial investment.  These two specific examples will be used to illustrate a general protocol for scoping and managing DW/BI projects to ensure that the value proposition is quantitative and demonstrable.Data warehouse/business intelligence (DW/BI) technology and resources are a multi-million dollar investment for even modest size companies.  Senior management certainly concedes that timely, reliable information is essential to business operations but are challenged to demonstrate real cost savings or revenue creation directly attributable to DW/BI investment.  In these austere economic times, DW/BI programs are coming under increasing scrutiny to justify their budgets relative to competing investments.

Data Integration Tips & Tricks - Data integration is the cornerstone of data warehousing (DW) and master data management (MDM) but has proven to be one of the more difficult technical challenges.  This presentation provides helpful techniques for merging data from disparate functional areas or organizations into a unified semantic data model.  The approach leverages a modular design and metadata-driven methods too provide a durable, extensible data integration tool kit.
