A. Lab # : BSBA BIS245A-1 B. Lab 1 of 7 : Introduction to MS Visio and MS Access C. Lab Overview--Scenario/Summary TCOs: 1. Given a business situation in which managers require information from a database, determine, analyze and classify that information so that reports can be designed to meet the requirements. 2. Given a situation containing entities, business rules, and data requirements, create the conceptual model of the database using a database modeling tool. Scenario: You have been asked to create two conceptual database models using MS Visio Database Model Diagram Template. The purpose of this lab is to have you gain familiarity with the various modeling tools needed to create a conceptual model (entity relationship diagram) of a
Business intelligence (BI) merges architectures, tools, databases, analytical tools, applications, and methodologies. It also is context free like DSS. BI deduces the connections between business entities by evaluating copious volumes of historical data which supports decisions. BI has four major components consisting of a data warehouse, business analytics, business performance management, and a user interface.
senior management and front-end workers) at the early stage of implementation. This can provide users an in-deep knowledge how the system is established, how to operate the system and how to transform and structure information into standardized data, at the same time, CTC can learn from their user experience design a better BI system will fit well with the existing working process and increase usability of this BI portal for the Data Warehouse on the BI system beta testing stage. By engaging senior management in the process would allow them to have a better vision on exanimating how well the current organization structure and culture is supporting the implementation of the BI system, and develop a better technical user supporting tools such as the “BI helpdesk website platform” to overcome the frustrations and problems that will occur to the users to eliminate the frustrations and increase the acceptance of the BI system. Moreover, it needs to establish an instant communication tool that provides one-click access throughout the organization to encourage interaction and reduce the psychological distance in collaboration. The BI system strategy will succeed only when user adopt the system , therefore there must have a strong alignment between the 4 components ( Structure, Technology, People and Process) and adequate training, supporting tool and reward incentives for
Though Canyon Ranch has property management system that captures some customer data but implementing CRM and BI will make robust system to periodically survey customers, capture sales data and track services. Such integration can increase repeat customer visit, enhance customer personalization and attract new customers. The implantation of BI will allow company to attract profitability of its three segments : Health and Healing, Hotels and Spas. With this intelligence Canyon Ranch will employ cost saving measures, track inventory and monitor resources. Such system will improve capability and enhance productivity.
BI applications include the activities of decision support systems, query and reporting, online analytical processing (OLAP), statistical analysis, forecasting and data mining. ("Business Intelligence (BI)." What Is ? N.p., n.d. Web. 27 July 2013).
A data warehouse and business intelligence application was created as part of the Orion Sword Group project providing business intelligence to order and supply chain management to users. I worked as part of a group of four students to implement a solution. This report reflects on the process undertaken to design and implement the solution as well as my experience and positive learning outcome.
Business intelligence (BI) is the process of gathering enough of the right information in the right manner at the right time, and delivering the right results to the right people for decision-making purposes so that it can continue to yield real business benefits, or have a positive impact on business strategy, tactics, and operations in the enterprises. Business intelligence is a well-established and generally well-known software category that spans a wide range of functional capabilities. Business Intelligence systems are one step
“BIM can reduce time consuming errors and rework, accessible from virtually anywhere at any time by all projects stockholders and actionable to help informed you decision making with simulation and analysis by means better communication flow. It can improve the accuracy of a design. So, in other words, it can improve the visualisation. It can track and monitor the progress.”
This report outlines 15 major advantages of using BIM software following by a description of 10 critical conflicts in the Tekla demo model as a practical exercise.
In today's world any multinational organization needs to be efficient, scalable and easily expandable, in its working style. Many of the business are fast moving and alterable, implying BI tools in order to accomplish the goals can do this. Implying a new BI tool is an effort of months or it can be a never-ending stream too, for user requests and maintenance. Once the software is installed, anyone can connect to data with a click and create interactive, analytical dashboards. BI tools help you to move forward and not hold you back.
It is likely to be some time before BIM systems are so universally used, and to such a high degree of sophistication. Whilst many larger organisations are already making full use of BIM systems, even they have some way to go to achieve the ultimate fully-integrated BIM level.
For us professionals involved in a project, BIM therefore enables a virtual information model to be handed from the design team to the main contractor and subcontractors and then on to the owner/operator with each professional adding discipline-specific data to the single shared model. One of the benefits of this approach is that there is a reduction in the loss of information that traditionally occurred when a new team takes
“Making effective business decisions require gathering and analyzing data. In the Hospitality Industry, we have access to significant amount of data about customers, buying patterns, pricing, occupancy, rates, etc.” (The Online Path, n.d.). The basic steps in any planning process is to be startegic and tactical in communicating the goals and strategies to be taken within the organization. Strategic and tactical planning will leverage the strengths of an organization, while reducing the effects of its weakness. Implementing service mamangement tools and techniques are vital to an organization success. These tools and techiniques are used in decision-making, planning, quality control, finance shares, production, marketing, research and development. They also give the organization a competeive advatange in market success, broaden its domain, and promote customer satisfaction.
This implementation successfully covers all CRM business support systems needs in terms of leisure, corporate segment as well as incorporates organization’s Data Warehouse (Dot.cy, 2010). The hotel has also pursued in adapting customers loyalty programs.
