Last week saw the BI User Group gather in Edinburgh – an afternoon dedicated to all things BI. With over 50 clients and friends gathered in the grandeur of The Dome, we were treated to guest speakers, expert insights and technical demos.

We were delighted to welcome clients from right across the UK, including Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester, London and Belfast.

Edinburgh Napier University were the first to take the stage, focussing on ‘Information for Strategic Decision Making’ and how the University is using BI to improve the student experience and grow.

Barrachd consultants Matt Jamison and Mike Napthine were up next to look into Dynamic Cubes.

After the coffee break, Community Safety Glasgow’s Chis Mooney discussed the power of ETL and the subsequent journey to develop BI as a line of business.

The afternoon session closed by delving into a live demo of Cognos Analytics – the new Cognos BI release – to look at its new interface and functionality.

This was just our second BI User Group and after the success of last year’s event, we had a tough task to follow. However, with a bumper audience and fantastic speakers, we were delighted with the outcome of our latest get-together. Thanks once again to everyone that made it along – especially our guest speakers. We hope you found it both informative and fun.
