Event description

Description

The IIBA Perth Branch is looking forward to hosting our June event with an interesting presentation on self-service business intelligence. The June event will also be our EOFY networking event.

Self-service Business Intelligence – Think Outside the Spreadsheet

Business Intelligence (BI) is one of the fastest growing fields in ICT, and the rise of Self-Service BI (SSBI) tools such as Tableau, Power BI etc. means that it is no longer the domain of professional BI developers. SSBI tools, in the right hands, can help businesses achieve their strategic goals, track their KPIs, measure the success of change initiatives and identify opportunities for savings and growth.

To be most effective, BI needs to be done by someone with a detailed understanding of business requirements, knowledge of the business domain and key processes, familiarity with business systems and data, and an established rapport with key stakeholders and decision makers. This of course describes the Business Analyst.

This presentation will look at the latest advances in SSBI tools, and have an in-depth look at Power BI from Microsoft. It will show how BAs can master these tools to gain insights into all aspects of the business and in turn advance their own careers.

Speaker Biographies:

Sue Webb – IIBA Perth Chair

Sue Webb Profile

Sue Webb has been a professional educator for over twenty years, starting as an applications trainer at Canning College. From there Sue progressed to tutoring at a tertiary level, then lecturing at University before leaving academia to become a Technical Trainer in the private sector, which happened nearly ten years ago. Sue is passionate and enthusiastic about education and training, and loves being a trainer. Sue was recently promoted to Principal Practitioner for Business Analysis when DDLS recognised her dedication and domain expertise in this area. Sue is also the Chair of the Perth Branch of the IIBA.

Sue’s two greatest passions are from opposites sides of the IT triangle – process and technology, and yet they are very closely related to each other. They are Business Analysis and Business Intelligence… Sue believes that teaching both of these subjects, as well as Project Management, IT Service Management and SharePoint, gives her a unique perspective on IT. It allows Sue to see IT for the business benefits it delivers, not just for the cool funky toys that IT so often presents itself as.

Sue graduated from Edith Cowan University with a first-class honours degree (BSc) in Computer Science. Sue was awarded the Faculty Medal for academic excellence and was recognised on the Dean’s list twice.
