This course provides the knowledge and skills to effectively develop, apply and research business intelligence systems. These are computerised systems which support an organisation in the decision making process, many of the techniques used in this area are underpinned by predictive statistics and mathematical modelling. This course emphasises the concepts and techniques of business intelligence systems and their application and development, which are underpinned and exemplified via the learning of one or more contemporary 'best of breed' business intelligence software tools. Compulsory taught modules give the opportunity to gain the fundamental knowledge and practices required to apply, develop and research business intelligence systems, while optional modules provide the chance to study particular aspects of system application and development in more depth. The individual project module allows you to undertake research into an aspect of business intelligence systems that interests you, and/or to perform appropriate business intelligence development tasks in response to a given practical problem.
