Business Intelligence (BI) promises an organization of the capability of collecting and analyzing internal and external data to generate knowledge and value, providing decision support at the strategic, tactical and operational levels. Now that we live in a knowledge society, people and organizations are immersed in a constantly flowing torrent of information, and businesses succeed or fail based largely on how effectively they collect, clean, transform, integrate, store, explore, analyze and monitor this information to predict future trends and make the best decisions. To succeed in this day and age, organizations can no longer afford to treat information and communication technologies as administrative tools, but need to embrace them as a strategic asset and embed them fully in their decision-making process.
The added value of IT4BI consists of:
a two-year, English-language course in BI, given by world-renowned European institutions who jointly designed the courses and programme, including three choices of specialisation,
the first curriculum in Europe covering the broad scope of scientific and technological fields supporting today and tomorrow\'s Business Intelligence systems,
strong connections with research and industry, offered by 5 full partner HEIs cooperating with 12 industrial associated partners, 2 national research institutes, 2 regional public authorities, 4 HEIs around the world, and a European HEI network, all contributing to the programme and its development.
