FST Auckland Conference Presentation

You can find the presentation I did for the Financial Services Technology conference in Auckland last week here.

Brief synopsis: systems/operational management provides a useful analogue to the problems faced by implementers of business intelligence environments: huge volumes of data streaming in for which you need to provide health indicators and predictions of the future.

In the case of Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager tool this is done in a manner that is very different from conventional BI efforts that rely on staging large quantities of data, building relational and dimensional models and producing KPIs. The solutions developed for operations management can be usefully applied to BI efforts, particularly when not dealing with financial data.
