Event description

Description

An Optimal introduction to Defining Data Requirements is a 1-day course, that shows you how to bridge the technical-business divide when gathering business users data requirements. The tool we use at OptimalBI (because it's the best one we've found) is BEAM*, so that's what we'll focus on.

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 to get everyone on the same page faster. We all know that collecting data-driven requirements and slotting those requirements into proven designs can be a minefield of mistranslation. Whether your project is Agile or Waterfall - BEAM* will work for you.

BEAM* can be used by anyone, providing common language whether you are a Business Analyst who knows nothing about data or a Developer who knows nothing about a business function.

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.
