It has become the top presidency of Chief Information Officer (CIOs) since it (BI) can have a direct positive impact on business performance of an enterprise.

Business Analytics News by Marcus Borba

One of the things I like best about technology is its use to solve problems that contribute to the improvement of society’s quality of life in general. Yesterday, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) announced joint support for 6 projects at universities in both countries that leverages Big Data and Data Analytics to transform disaster management for individuals and for society at-large. According the announce, when disaster strikes, it is critical that experts, decision makers and emergency personnel have access to real-time information in order to assess the situation and respond appropriately.

Business intelligence and data warehousing team structure


How do most people structure BI/DW teams? Who do we want on the team? What’s the typical chain of command? Are they part of the IT department?
 

Business intelligence/data warehousing teams are constructed quite differently from shop to shop. The most common placement is within IT, although recently I’ve noticed more in the CFO’s area instead.

In business intelligence and data warehousing teams, there is a Director, a Technical Lead (which is somebody that oversees the architecture and can roam into multiple of the other positions), ETL developers (typically mutliple of these) and data access developers. Data modelers may also be a distinct role, or modeling may be done by the Technical Lead. Business analysis is required and may be done by the modeler in small shops. The Physical DBA/System Admininstration needs are generally done by service level agreement (SLA) with those core
