Session Description

BI (Business Intelligence) is all about providing a summary of the most important information to the right person at the right time. A dynamic information dashboard helps achieve this and FileMaker is the perfect tool for building it. However, 70%-80% of BI projects fail (ref: Gartner) predominantly from focusing too much on the technology and not enough on the business and the people in it. In this session, you will learn about the 10 practical steps that will help you not only implement a dashboard but will also help you avoid the 70%- 80% failure rates.
