SAP BI skills transform you from a Grad to a Guru

When reading industry journals or reports to stay updated with the key trends, how many times have you scratched your heads to figure out whether Big Data is just a term, hype or a key trend that is transforming millions of lives around you? Ever wondered why Analytics and Business Intelligence Consulting services are creating a profound impact on organizations around the globe?

The answer to these questions lies in understanding what Business Intelligence is and its relation to Big Data analytics. Business Intelligence has much more utility than just being used for data mining, extracting, reporting and analyzing information. It is a top-notch technology that helps companies to attain and sustain a competitive advantage often, with the help of advisory and consulting services available to them. BI tools nowadays, should be able to analyze Big Data with their analytics capabilities. 

According to a recent news report published by IDG News Service*, IT hiring in 2013 will focus on jobs involving cloud computing, mobile technology and business intelligence. IT projects revolving BI are not just about the tools but also depend on the skills of people working upon them.

Most organizations grapple with failing BI projects as they do not understand that BI is a specialized skill in itself, and BI consultants or advisers need a well -crafted strategic plan to facilitate interactions between various teams.
