The IIBA CIC Leadership Council supports Business Analysis managers and leaders. This group is meant for anyone that has responsibility for BAs or for advancing Business Analysis practices within their companies.
For October, 2018:
Big Data and Data Analysis is a hot topic and the International Data Corporation estimated the market will grow to be $203 billion by 2020. Today, many corporations have a Business Intelligence area that focuses on Data Analysis, but are challenged with effectively leveraging BI with project delivery teams. In the future, Data Analysis will be a core skill needed by teams to organize information and derive meaningful conclusions and strategies.
The Leadership Council's guest speaker is George De Graaf, Director of Business Intelligence at Athene USA. He will have a short presentation entitled "Business Intelligence", and covers the increasing interest in BI, types of BI tools, BI successes, and BI failures. We will then have open discussion on how we can incorporate BI concepts into our teams, into our requirements, and prepare staff for a future where Data Analysis is a key job skill.
