1 BI on a Dime OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE BI

2 Agenda  Get up to speed on terms  Feather River College case  See business intelligence in action  Strategy – Architecture – Infrastructure  Data Warehouse ERD Exercise

3 What are we talking about?  Business Analytics: is the extensive use of data, statistical and quantitative analysis, explanatory and predictive models, and fact-based management to drive decisions and actions.  Business Intelligence (BI): A set of technologies and processes that use data to understand and analyze business performance. BI includes both data access and reporting, and analytics.

4 What are we talking about?

5 Last slide on this, I promise!  Transaction Database: A system designed to process transaction data. Optimized for putting data into the system quickly.  Data Warehouse: A system designed to store validated data for the long haul. Optimized for fast querying.  Data Mart: A user interface to present data. Should be designed to be intuitive.

6 FRC Case  First: Where the hell is Feather River College?

7 FRC Case  The Problem: The institution had matured to the point that it was good at putting data into the ERP system – Banner. Unfortunately we weren’t any good at getting it out.  Limited resources:  Staff  Money  Technical Expertise

8 FRC Design and Implementation  Sample – Data Flow Diagram Data Flow Diagram

9 FRC Design and Implementation  SQL Server - Parts SSIS Analysis Services Reporting Services Manage- ment Studio

10 FRC Design and Implementation  It’s Demo Time  Finished Examples

11 A QUICK Lesson in Database Design  Databases power this stuff so you should learn about how to design them  Scenario: You want to track which employees are on committees and when they joined or left the committee. EmployeeID FirstName LastName Committee WhenStarted WhenLeft EmployeeIDFirstNameLastNameCommitteeWhenStartedWhenLeft 12345BrianMurphySLOAC4/1/ BrianMurphySEM4/1/20104/1/ BrianMurphySPC4/1/2010

12 A QUICK Lesson in Database Design  Start breaking data out by dependency  Look at relationships *EmployeeID FirstName LastName Employee *CommitteeID CommitteeName Committee ?

13 A QUICK Lesson in Database Design  Because employees can serve on multiple committees and committees have multiple employees on them, we need an linking table. *EmployeeID FirstName LastName Employee *CommitteeID CommitteeName Committee * EmployeeID *CommitteeID StartDay EndDay EmployeeCommitte

14 FRC Design and Implementation  It’s Demo Time - Making Sausage  FRC ERD  FRC SQL Server Stuff

15 Ideas for Development Remember the audience  Different data marts for different folks  Understand at a glance  Simplify  You still have IR to take care of the hard stuff  Train

16 Ideas for Development Fast, Inexpensive, Always improving, Always on

17 Ideas for Development Minimum Information System Requirements  SQL Server 2012 (Enterprise Edition)  Adequate ram very important  SharePoint 2010 (Enterprise Edition)  Running on SQL Server 2012 platform  Silverlight installed on clients  Communication between servers  Administrative rights on SQL Server

18 Ideas for Development Future Compliant Information System Requirements  SQL Server 2012 (Enterprise Edition)  Adequate ram very important  SharePoint 2013 (Enterprise Edition or adequate Office 365 version)  Running on SQL Server 2012 platform  Office 2013  Communication between servers  Administrative rights on SQL Server

19 Ideas for Development  Suggested Reading  Murach’s SQL Server 2012 for Developers  Delivering Business Intelligence with Microsoft SQL Server  Competing on Analytics
