BI Conference in Wroclaw

BI Conference in Wroclaw

I would like to spread the word about a new conference which appears in my favourite city in Poland – Wroclaw. I’m talking to Jacek Biały, Business Intelligence Competency Center Manager in Sii, who shed the light on that event for us.

Kamil Nowiński: Which conference from the cycle and when did the idea of its come about?
Jacek Biały: It’s the first edition of BI Connected, but not the first our conference. Sii twice a year organizes Get.Net – one of the biggest .Net conferences in Poland. We have also organized the conference dedicated to Scala developers and the one for Angular developers.
The idea of organizing BI conference came to our mind at the beginning of the year. Business Intelligence is very important area in Sii and we feel that this kind of event is needed in the BI community.

KN: Why Wroclaw, actually?
JB: Wroclaw is the new Silicon Valley with more than 12000 IT specialists, working in 200 companies. Part of them focus on Business Intelligence as an integral part of business development. BI community is also very active in Wroclaw. On the other hand our branch in Wroclaw is also highly developed in BI area. We have many BI projects run directly in Wroclaw. All this factors make Wroclaw great place for that meeting.

KN: How many sessions are planned?
Participants of the event will be able to listen 9 speeches made by BI experts. The conference topics include among others Power BI, SQL Server, Data Vault 2.0 and Qlik Sense Cloud.

KN: When does the registration for the event start?
JB: Registration and ticket sales started at the end of August. All the information can be found on biconnected.evenea.pl

KN: For those who are just looking at the labor market or do not yet know the concept of BI – let’s say what Business Intelligence is today, what areas does it cover and what technical tools are used to develop BI class solutions?
JB: Simplifying the definition of BI is: “Business Intelligence transform raw data for business purposes friendly”. In a one word, all actions aimed at transforming data into understandable business information is BI and the question is what action we can take now contribute to the transformation of data? Nowadays such activities and processes are all kinds of ETL processes (Extract, Transform and Load), construction of data warehouse or Data Lake, statistical data modeling, data visualization (reports, dashboards), which allow us to extract essential knowledge from the data. To do this we need the right tool support and that’s what we get. Currently, we have a lot of tools available for processing data such as: Power BI, Qlik Sense, Informatica Power Center, SAS, SAP BO or various tools from the Big Data area: Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Scala, Hive and many others. I don’t describe these tools here and encourage everyone to check them out for themselves, but I would like to invite everyone to explore the amazing BI world, where you never know what secrets you can discover.

KN: Thank you and I wish you good luck also with this conference.

JB: Thank you.
