Business intelligence is about bridging the gap between the data collected and what data business people need to drive the business and improve. Once ready for distribution, drop them into your dashboards, reports, or data stories and get blazing fast insights when they’re connected to both BigQuery, Google’s MPP analytics data warehouse, and to BigQuery BI Engine, an in-memory analysis service with sub-second query response, high concurrency, and smart performance tuning.
A set of methodologies, processes, platforms, applications, architectures, and technologies that transform raw data into meaningful and useful information used to enable more effective strategic, tactical and operational insights and decision-making.
The importance of such large datasets cannot be overstressed specially with regard to businesses operating in periods of uncertainty, where the swift processing of market data to support decision-making may be the difference between survival and extinction.
As the processing of these datasets is beyond the scope of most companies operating individually, hence a collaborative frame work is expected to emerge with companies operating different sections of the new data analytics process and sharing the results obtained from processing such data.
This book will be valuable to data management and BI professionals, including senior and middle-level managers, Chief Information Officers and Chief Data Officers, senior business executives and business staff members, database or software engineers, and business analysts.
