Business Data Analytics: Tactical and Strategic Data-Driven Decision-Making | IIBA Endorsed

Inteq2_Biz Proc Mgmt 04 BDA-1

Inteq’s 2-day Business Data Analytics (BDA) training program is about enabling and supporting better faster business decision-making. The focus of BDA is on business data from a business (non-technical) perspective. BDA provides Business Analysts, Data Analysts and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with the critical thinking skills, conceptual knowledge and best practice techniques to rapidly discover, thoroughly analyze and visually present and communicate actionable data that enables stakeholders to glean valuable insights and make intelligent decisions.

Business data is growing exponentially—in volume, velocity, and variety! Customer requirements, competition and innovation are driving rapid changes in business requirements and supporting business processes. Decision makers, at all levels of an organization, require accurate, current, cohesive business data to glean actionable intelligence and insights to make effective tactical and strategic decisions.

All organizations today recognize the value of business data analytics. However, many organizations are not yet realizing the full potential. The problem is not with the enabling technologies—the technologies are stable and well understood. The problem lives with asking the right business questions, properly analyzing the supporting business data, and presenting and communicating the results in a clear, cohesive, intuitive manner.
