The best books, blogs, forums and training courses about Business Intelligence, part I - BPX

We like to translate the term ‘Business Intelligence’ as ‘understanding data’. Whether you are just starting out in the world of BI or are battle-hardened in database terminology, it can always be done better, and more efficiently. But how? Thanks to free training materials, blogs, videos and books! Here are, in our opinion, some of the most interesting sources of knowledge!

Below, in the eyes of BPX employees, are some recommended resources for learning or refreshing your knowledge. The subject matter covers more than just Business Intelligence class systems, which is why for each recommendation we have marked the category to which the case applies. Enjoy learning!
