Topics covered include the nature and purpose of BI, the relationship between BI and data warehousing, design issues related to BI tools and data warehouses, and common data analysis techniques such as OLAP, data mining and other computational techniques. The differences between these kinds of systems and other, more traditional information systems will be highlighted.
