BIG DATA – Just one more buzzword?

I confess that I'm already tired of the buzzword Big Data! But as an invited lecture in several universities, I must motivate students to embrace new concepts to make them research and learn “new things”. But in my opinion it’s just a new buzzword, nothing more… is like Business Analytics or other buzzwords that BI vendors incorporate in their products and services to make the idea they are creating something new and different from the concurrency. Well… but I think we should take a look about what they purpose to at least can have an opinion about it. Maybe I’m wrong! For that reason, I invite you to join the BIG DATA event that will take place at one of the best universities in Portugal concerning to Business Intelligence and related buzzwords.

MSIAD - Agile DW and ETL design

It’s a big honor to have two amazing DW and ETL gurus in Portugal (Lawrence Corr and Joe Caserta). It’s for me the most important BI training ever done in Portugal. The price is higher but acceptable for attend several sessions provided by these two references. Concerning to Lawrence Corr, you should read the book we wrote… it’s the best book I ever read! Better than Kimball or Inmon. I’ll post my review of this book soon in my blog!! For now, stay with official description about the training that will take place at ISCTE (Lisboa).

The Lisbon BI Course is the first training in Portugal in Agile Data Warehouse Design and ETL with renowned experts in the field, Lawrence Corr and Joe Caserta. Lawrence and Joe usually teach these courses all over the world, including in TDWI events. This constitutes a unique opportunity to learn and exchange ideas in a friendly but intense environment. The Lisbon BI Course will take place at ISCTE – University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL), located in the centre of Lisbon, in the University City Campus. This is a joint effort promoted by ISCTE-IUL, particularly its Master in Integrated Systems for Decision Support (MSIAD)

Lawrence Corr is the author of Agile Data Warehouse Design: Collaborative Dimensional Modeling, from Whiteboard to Star Schema. He is a leading data warehouse design specialist and highly experienced educator who has worked in Europe, USA, the Middle East and South Africa developing and reviewing data warehouses for healthcare, telecommunications, engineering, broadcasting, financial services and retail clients

Joe Caserta is the author of the best-selling book The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit, the de facto standard for building dimensional data warehouses. Joe offers more than 25 years of IT experience and over 15 years of delivering dimensional data warehouse solutions including experience in Higher Education. Joe delivers his published best practices in a way that encourages participants to immediately apply his techniques in real-life situations
