Business Analytics Architecture Masterclass for Partners

This one-day workshop is FREE of charge to OPN member Partners in EMEA.

March 20, 2014 - 10:00 AM – 04:00 PM, in the Oracle Office Dublin, Ireland

Transformational Change Services Opportunity for Partners

Business Intelligence & Analytics projects are consistently top priority for your clients, and are seen by many organisations as the key driver of transformational change. Business users challenge IT with issues on trust, access to critical data and understanding of information, while IT may struggle to align with business goals and truly engage with business users.

These issues must be solved before an organisation can begin to make BI more pervasive, self-service, and embedded into the business process.

Join our Masterclass for Partners on 20th March 2014, where you'll learn how Oracle's Information Management and Business Analytics reference architecture can address these issues in a timely, pragmatic and reliable way.

Due to the great success of previous Master Classes on this subject, your presenters will follow a "free format" agenda using Whiteboards rather than formal presentations to allow as much interaction with you as possible.
