On Reference Models and Reference Architecture: A Business Intelligence Case Study
Please join us for a presentation from Alejandro Miguel, an information architect. He has lead the architecture, information management and built data quality management solutions for large companies Including Microsoft, Merck & Co. Inc., Concur Technologies!
Over the last few years, we have learned a great deal about architecting and designing business intelligence (BI) solutions; however that knowledge wasn’t always easy to find and digest. It is still hard for architects and consultants to design solutions that adhere to proven practices for BI in general. And what makes this even more difficult is the diversity of offerings from existing products and vendors.
This session will talk about building a BI Reference Architecture guide using principles-based guidance that is technology agnostic for helping drive the design of BI solutions, along with technology considerations to assist with key engineering decisions.

He has worked as information architect, has lead the architecture, information management and built data quality management solutions for large companies Including Microsoft, Merck & Co.
