The goal of the course is to introduce business intelligence (BI) platforms, with specific reference to data warehouses seen as an enabling technology for BI. Teaching will be mainly focused on OLAP, multidimensional modelling (at both the conceptual and logical level), and self-service BI. Some notions about data integration and cleaning will be provided.
