North Central BI Special Interest User Group Meeting – Sept 12

Posted by denglishbi on August 27, 2008

The next local BI Special Interest Group (BI-SIG) in MN is coming up on September 12 from 2:30 to 6:30.  I will be co-presenting with Joe Beeck from GfK on  ‘Spreadmart to Data Mart Conversion’.  Here is the topic description:
Everybody probably has spreadmarts somewhere in their organization.  They start out small and quickly grow and become mission critical.  This presentation will be talking about taking an Excel spreadmart reporting solution and migrating it into a data mart solution.  Both sides of the project with be discussed, business and technical.  The first portion will talk about the history of the solution, discuss working with the business users, requirements gathering, challenges faced and then we will go into the technical details.  We will compare spreadmarts vs data marts, discuss how the solution was architected, options that were explored, technologies used, and challenges that had to be overcome.
Come check it out if you are in the area.

Hope to see you thereSmile
