Systems targeting to achieve business advantages by enhancing enterprise transparency and improving decision-support effectiveness have been designed and developed over the last 40 years. Today, they are subsumed under the heading business intelligence (BI). This lecture aims to provide a holistic understanding of the area of business intelligence, including a management, organizational and technical perspective. Students will get in this lecture the theoretical knowledge of major concepts of the area, as well as a more practically oriented view of tools and their actual use.
From a practically oriented perspective, students will expand the theoretical foundations by carrying out a capstone project and create a BI solution for a particular business scenario by themselves. The capstone project in the BI lecture is in cooperation with KPMG and students will work with a real dataset from KPMG customers. Moreover, students will learn how to work with SAP HANA and SAP Lumira tools to create a BI solution by doing the capstone project.
