Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2012/08/14 - Global Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, will host a series of Webinars, throughout Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 August - YellowfinBI.com.
The Location Intelligence Best Practices Webinars will explore the intensification of enterprise data mapping and dissect the major trends and non-negotiable best practices of Location Intelligence (LI).
LI enables business analysts and report consumers to apply geographic contexts to business data by combining location-based data with traditional metrics captured within a BI system.
“Attendees will learn how to harness advanced mapping capabilities to advantage their organization by effectively aligning business development and strategy,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie.
“As noted by IDC, 80% of corporate data has a spatial element, so Location Intelligence is an integral component of any enterprise data strategy. Merging location-based and traditional Business Intelligence information provides context to business data, uncovering previously unrealized relationships between different data types, to expose new business opportunities.”
Rabie said Webinar participants would learn:
• The latest trends driving development and demand for LI.
• Why the ability to map, visualize and understand data from a geographic standpoint will become an increasingly important part of any BI solution.
• How to deploy best practice LI to generate context, meaning and expose crucial relationships between data types.
• Why Yellowfin’s Macquarie University implementation was recognized by Ventana Research as the best 2010/11 worldwide example of LI and the most likely to produce significant business value heading into 2012.
“If the ability to understand the relationships between key data sets – your infrastructure, your customers, your suppliers – and discover new opportunities by effectively aligning development and strategy is important to you and your business, then this Webinar is a must,” said Rabie.
There are three concise forty minute Webinars scheduled throughout Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 August.
Following the Webinar, attendees will receive a copy of the presentation slides and a recording for on-demand viewing.
