BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY (BI-COMMUNITY)
The “Communities” for and with Business Intelligence Professionals.
The BI-Community (from 2009 till 2011) did emerge from a grouping of professionals to a broad learning network or eco-system. The community organizes, following an annual calendar, the exchange of knowledge and sharing of expertise on the broad range of business intelligence topics: market evolution, organizational models, product evolution, lessons in adoption and more.
The eco-system includes the consumer of BI Solutions from private and public sector organisations, the providers of software and services, academic institutions, media and market observers or analists.
The BI-Community.org covers a range seminars, sessions, workshops and workgroups. Also electronic and printed distribution of content is organized. >> Link to Events.
