As past of the current module following contents are taught:
Definition and scope of business intelligence.
Procedures and objectives of data warehousing.
Process of extracting, transforming and loading (ETL) of data.
Phases of data modelling, data capturing and reporting in conjunction with a plausible case studies/scenarios.
Prospects for further and evolving topics for business intelligence (e.g. Adaptive Business Intelligence, In-MemoryComputing. etc.)
Introduction to Data Mining.
Case studies based practical exercises and assessments in order to impart practical knowledge.
