Event description


BEAM* is a better way to gather your data requirements.

Learning how to use the Business Event and Activity Modelling method closes the gap between Business Users and Data Warehouse Developers providing a fast track to speaking the same language through the requirements.

Despite the data warehouse and modelling space being relatively mature, collecting data-driven requirements and slotting those requirements into proven designs is a minefield of mistranslation. Whether your project is Agile or Waterfall this method works for you, whether you are a Business Analyst who knows nothing about data or a Developer who knows nothing about a business function, this method provides a language that both can understand.

This hands-on one-day course uses examples and exercises to reinforce concepts, delivering practical techniques, templates and methods you can use the very next day.
