The first step to "Business Intelligence" is “BQ” – Better Query.

With a few simple, non-disruptive steps, you can provide your enterprise management and operational staff visual and real-time information that enables better, more timely decisions.

Join Paul Conte for a web seminar that will explain how to move from static, greenbar-era reports to quickly customized, visual analysis with dynamic “drill-down,” “data explorer” and “what if” capabilities.

Paul will explain an "agile" approach to “BQ” that will improve the value of your enterprise data and information delivery without undue cost or complexity.

Using examples of real-world applications, this seminar covers a variety of operational, tactical, and strategic ways to quickly deliver “BQ” techniques and tools and lay the foundation for incremental implementation of additional BI capabilities.

Mike Stegeman will provide an overview of SEQUEL, a graphical and browser based ‘business information’ tool developed for IBM i. With SEQUEL, writing ‘better queries’ (BQs) is simple. SEQUEL can deliver powerful queries, customizable dashboards, has a variety of distribution options, and complex reporting and multiple step queries can be created without compiling.
