Our BCS training course is available for either a purchase for individual use at $195.00, or for an enterprise, unlimited audience within one organization for $1995.00.

Enterprise business organizations, large organizations in the public sector and, finally, large non profit organizations are all expressing keen interest in supporting IT projects designed to collect accurate BI data. Ostensibly, the reason for this interest can be attributed to overall economic performance over the last 5 years, which can be seen as the unfortunate result of a pervasive lack of useful BI data, which, in turn, lead to ineffective defensive activity. In fact, accurate BI data can and should be included in risk management programs, which ought to be designed to help organizations avoid the type of financial suffering that the world has experienced since 2007.

Graphical representation of BI data has been shown to be a useful tool, which when provided to senior management can lead, quickly, to effective defensive strategies against a looming downturn in business activity comparable to the period we have just experienced. When BCS is used to connect the chart web part included with out of the box SharePoint 2010, Enterprise Edition, to a SQL Server 2008 R2, 2012, or 2013 back end, business line data can be prominently displayed to senior management regardless of the extent to which an organization is characterized by silos. Evidently, given the level of marketplace interest in BI, many organizations would rather see through their silos than simply put up with a potentially dangerous level of exposure should business lines fail to hit their operational targets.

If your organization has a mandate to improve the performance of BI activities you should seriously consider utilizing BCS with SharePoint.
